The Financial Services Agency of Japan allowed the Coincheck cryptocurrency exchange to continue its work, reports Cointelegraph.

Coincheck exchange was hacked last January. NEM cryptocurrency was stolen in the amount of 58 billion yen ($ 533 million) according to the price of that time. Soon after, the Japanese authorities began to tighten the regulation of the industry, and Coincheck became the property of the online broker Monex.

In December last year, it was reported that the Japanese regulator issued a license to Coincheck, as well as plans to resume the stock exchange. Against the background of these transformations, the marketplace improved the risk management system and gradually resumed the operation of services.
