Crypto Industry News:
Tokyo District Court issued the first cryptocurrency seizure order in Japan. $ 46,000 worth of bitcoins were confiscated in connection with the Coincheck hack in 2018.
Kyodo said police had seized Bitcoins, which were being held by a Hokkaido doctor and a director from Osaka Prefecture. Two men were arrested in connection with the burglary. They are accused of knowingly buying stolen NEM via the dark web market, in violation of the country’s organized crime laws.
The Coincheck exchange suffered a record break-in when NEM worth $ 534 million was stolen from its wallets. Research by Asahi Shimbun showed that personal computers belonging to Coincheck employees were infected with a virus related to Russian hackers.
According to the media, the exchange experienced another data breach in June 2020, involving unauthorized access to the platform’s domain registration service.
