Bitpoint Exchange, hacked last week, discovered a part of stolen cryptoactive assets worth $ 2.3 million at overseas sites that used the trading system provided by Bitpoint Japan.
Recall that the stock exchange was hacked on July 12. Hackers managed to steal cryptocurrencies in the amount of $ 32 million, of which $ 23 million belonged to users of the site. The attackers kidnapped BTC, LTC, ETH and XRP from the hot wallets of the exchange, after which Bitpoint suspended the work of all services.
Hacking Bitpoint filled up a series of incidents with Japanese exchanges. In September 2018, the Zaif Exchange was also hacked and lost $ 60 million in cryptocurrencies. After that, the Japanese regulator tightened control over the market. Bitpoint was one of the exchanges that received an order from FSA to make changes in business operations in June last year.
