The hacked Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck was in the crypto news ten months ago, after more than $530 were stolen from the exchange. However, it seems like the exchange is recovering right now and according to an official crypto press release, has begun trading a wider range of assets.
After being purchased for around $33.5 million by Monex Group which is a popular Internet broker, Coincheck has made the announcement in which it outlines all the remedial measures and security improvements.
The release of Ripple (XRP) and Factom (FCT) token trading also means that Coincheck is now operating services for all “tradable cryptocurrencies” on the platform.
As the release stated:
“Coincheck has been steadily resuming as each service’s technical safety is confirmed through the supports of external experts.As of the announcement today regarding XRP and FCT, Coincheck has resumed depositing and purchasing services for all tradable cryptocurrencies on Coincheck.”
Other services including a leveraged transactions as well as an affiliate service are also planned, according to Monex.
Two weeks ago, Coincheck resumed trading of NEM (XEM) which is the token which bore the brunt of the exchange’s losses.

This platform just allows for that exchange, basically before that debt is settled to the state of Ohio.”Sprague pointed out that the treasury is reviewing how the program can be expanded and they are looking into the potential risks that can come up by using this method of tax payments. Ohio is working hard to attract blockchain-related businesses to the state.
