Great confusion is occurring in Japan’s leading virtual currency exchange coin check (Coincheck = CC).
The cause is suspension of deposit / withdrawal of NEM.
The coin check announced that around the afternoon of January 26, about the virtual currency NEM handled “We are restricting payment.”
After that, regarding NEM handling, “Temporary suspension on trading” and “Pause even for withdrawal” announced successive measures.
“We now suspend all handling currencies, including JPY (Japanese yen), at around 16:30.”
The voice of the wailing of the Japanese virtual currency investor spread through the Internet.
Observations are spreading that there are 540 million XEM remittances to other accounts from the coin check XEM account.
In the virtual currency market, the view pointed to concern about negative materials such as hacking damage, pointing out of the McGucks case of the virtual currency exchange which was broken down in 2014.
On the contrary, some optimistic viewpoints such as Nem’s listing of bit flyers and prevention of insiders on positive materials came out.
After announcing NEM payment restriction by coin check, the price of NEM and bit coin plummeted.
