Hardly had the Ethereum Token Sale CoinDash started (July 17th), the website has been hacked.

The official CoinDash statement was out on the company’s website. Thus, $7 million were stolen during the attack. The perpetrator’s identity hasn’t been established.

Now the Israeli blockchain start-up CoinDash claims that hackers returned part of the funds stolen in July. In total, CoinDash got back 10,000 ETH (about $ 2.9 million at the current exchange rate). 

Today at 05:13:28 PM +UTC, 10,000 ETH were sent back from the hackers address (FAKE_CoinDash) to one of CoinDash’s ETH accounts; Address (Tx Link)

A small translation tof 488 ETH was made from the address of the hacker on ShapeShift through several accounts on proxy servers. Noticing this transaction, the CoinDash team stepped up efforts to investigate the theft, including turning to the unit for countering terrorist activities in Israel.

Representatives of CoinDash also argue that they will continue to monitor the hacker's address.

Bitbox charges a 0.1% commission and supports 15 languages, including English, Korean, Chinese, Spanish, French and German. In Russia, the US, Japan and some other countries, the exchange is not available.

At the beginning of the year, Line Group applied for a license to the Japan Financial Services Agency, but the process dragged on because of tightening of the regulator's requirements in the light Coincheck exchange hack. All crypto exchange, wishing to provide services in the Japanese market, are required to obtain permission from the local regulator.

Currently, Line is also in the process of obtaining a license in the US. The company decided to open its first trading platform for crypto-currencies in Singapore, as this city-state adheres to a progressive approach to the regulation of the digital currency sphere.

With cryptocurrency, we are going to take our challenge in financial services global.
