World’s biggest ever digital currency ‘theft’

Dear Listers,

One of Japan’s largest digital currency exchanges says it has lost some
$534m (£380m) worth of virtual money in a hacking attack on its network.

Coincheck suspended deposits and withdrawals for all crypto-currencies
except Bitcoin as it assessed its losses in NEM, a lesser-known coin. If

been stolen from its network.
