After hacking, the Wavestring operating Coinis provides compensation.

A lot of news,

It's not exactly known who did it. With the help of the research institute, we will announce the exact hacking route and method as soon as possible.

I haven’t seen that story yet.(possibility of North Korea.)


It was a hacking case on the exchange that broke up again after YapiZon, but it seems to have not gotten much attention because the crypto market is so growing. And it wasn’t a very well-known large exchange, and the amount itself was not as big as the crypto market, so nobody seemed to care about the risks to the central exchange.

but
I personally thought hackers just started.
They’re going to be hackers who know the vulnerability of the exchange so well that it’s not impossible, it’s been revealed by a number of hacking incidents.

This centralized exchange hacking case continued beyond 2017 and into 2018. The next installment was a hacking incident that occurred when Bitcoin was in the middle of 20 million won in 2017.

It continues.
