Japan cracks down on cryptocurrency exchange

Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) has conducted its first raid on a cryptocurrency exchange following the world’s largest cyber-heist.

The FSA raided the offices of Tokyo-based cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck on 2 February after $530 million of the digital currency NEM was stolen from its systems. Before conducting the raid, the FSA ordered Coincheck to deliver a report by 13 February outlining how the hack occurred, how it intends to respond to its customers, and how it will improve its security.
