PosWallet is transitioning from POSW to a new XSN coin to implement new features like TPoS and Masternode while FazzCoin are moving to ERC-20 token because at the moment there are no miners on their network. Due to these changes, Cryptopia exchange is delisting both coins effective on April 29. As before, in case of PosWallet users are strongly advised to withdraw their funds before April 29 in order to ensure the safety and accessibility of the funds after the removal. The POSW network will stop being supported on May 1 and no issues are expected to happen.

As for FazzCoin, things are looking grim: because the network is not being mined, FAZZ lost its functionality. That means the chances of being able to withdraw the funds to users' personal wallets is quite low. The developers team was contacted and informed of the delisting. Unfortunately, Cryptopia was now informed of the swap, so users are advised to monitor any possible news source about the status of FAZZ coin. That way users will not miss out on the swap if it goes ahead. All complaints regarding the issues with withdrawal should be directed towards the coin developers team.

At the moment of publication, PosWallet market parameters are as follows

  • Average price: $0.360340
  • Market cap: $15,890,994
  • Volume (24H): $9,406

As for FazzCoin, its market indicators are as follows:

  • Average price: $0.005357
  • Volume (24H): $16

Japan to Tighten Regulation Due to Zaif Hack

25 September 2018   70

Hacking of Zaif exchange is the reason for toughening control over the market by the financial regulator of Japan, Reuters reports.

The first measure taken was administrative sanctions against the exchange and its operator Tech Bureau Corp. The Financial Services Agency (FSA) has expanded the list of requirements for the latter, pointing out the need to identify preventive measures and search for the organizers of the theft.

Shortly before that, researchers of the Japanese financial company Tech Bureau Corp could not provide details of the theft of $ 62 million from the Zaif crypto exchange at the request of the FSA. The Osaka-based operator had to investigate the causes, consequences of the theft and options for compensating the victims. According to the Agency, the financial company could not cope with the task.

According to the Tech Bureau, the exchange was hacked on September 14 within a few hours. The problem with the server was discovered by the site staff on 17 September. Official confirmation of the incident and notification of the authorities was made only a day later.

Recall, the theft of $ 60 million from the Japanese stock exchange Zaif caused a surge of volatility of bitcoin. For a short time the price was able to overcome the distance of $ 400.
