Ten cryptocurrency traders will file a lawsuit at the Tokyo District Court on Thursday, Feb. 15 over last month’s theft of $530 million (£382 million) in digital money.
After the last month’s hack, the crypto exchange lost $530 mln in NEM and had frozen all withdrawals.
According to the trader's lawyer, Hiromu Mochizuki, they will claim Coincheck to allow them to withdraw cryptocurrencies to wallets outside the exchange. The group of traders may launch a second lawsuit at the end of the month to claim for damages over the heist.
From Tuesday, Coincheck resumed yen-withdrawals. On Friday, Coincheck representatives said that it would allow customers to withdraw yen after confirming the integrity of its system security. Also, the exchange would keep restrictions on cryptocurrency withdrawals until it could guarantee the secure resumption of its operations.
