Bitpoint Japan finds part of stolen cryptocurrency

Mon, 15 Jul 2019, 05:50 am UTC

Bitpoint Japan, which recently suffered a major hack, has discovered a part of the stolen funds, The Mainichi reports.

The cryptocurrency exchange announced last week that it lost approximately $32 million in the hack which was detected on the night of July 11. Bitpoint had suspended all transactions and services soon after the hack.

The incident affected holdings in five different cryptocurrencies including bitcoin, XRP, Litecoin, ether, and bitcoin cash held in the hot wallet.

According to the media report, the exchange has found 250 million yen (approximately $2.3 million) worth of cryptocurrencies lost in the hack.

In its second report on the incident, Bitpoint said that the stolen cryptocurrencies were discovered on exchanges operating overseas that were using a trading system provided by Bitpoint Japan.

With the recovery of 250 million yen worth of crypto, the company’s revised estimate of initial loss stands at 3.02 billion yen.

Bitpoint said that it is continuing with its investigations and plans to establish measures to prevent any such incidents in the future. It is also examining the impact on the consolidated performance of the company and will release the details as soon as possible.

Be careful where you invest your bitcoin so you won't get scammed. Early this year I was introduced to bizztrade. com a trading platform that assist users to trade their Bitcoins for a period of time and allowed to withdraw a particular percentage amount after awhile. So I created a trading account and made a deposit of $4,750 to my bizztrade account in BTC

They traded my account frequently for about 7 weeks and money as increased much to around $11,800 worth of BTC. So I made a request to withdraw 50% of my bitcoin and the request was denied and afterwards they banned my account and they did not allowed me to withdraw the funds. I sent several emails with no replies at these point I knew I had been scammed. It was a tough month for me because my company recently laid off their staffs and I was among so I really needed the money for my family.

After several attempt to recover my account and bitcoin I was referred to a recovery team with the help of quora bitcoin community users. I sent a message to their email recovercyberhack @ gmail. com and after several chats and procedures, long story short, I recovered my $11,800 sent to the bitcoin address I provided during the recovery phase.

I never believed in recovery after several failed and Recovery scams but I risked them because I believed in quora moderators and I am happy I wasn't disappointed at the end.

Now I know Recovery can be possible if you choose the right Recovery team.

Have you gotten your bitcoins stolen from your wallet or invested in an ICO that turned out to be a scam? you are not alone because this happened to me too. I initially lost GBP257,000 in just three months from Cryptoallday and a couple of others. I contacted the authorities and they referred me to recoverywealthnow360 on google mail who helped me recover all my funds within 2 days. I’m speaking up to improve awareness of these cryptocurrency thieves and help as much as i can to reduce victims to the bearest minimum.

I have been thinking the best and most lucrative option is Cloud Mining not until i came through (Bitcoin mining expert online). However finding an authentic and reliable Miner is a challenge. To my own understanding we should get the best solution because when you make lots of research about a business or an investment company you will get to obtain lots of information from different people on their experience with that particular business or investment from the deduction you made, You can now decide what action to take. I receive 4.5BTC within 72hrs and a Minimum of 0.8 BTC a day and a weekly profit of 4.86BTC. He added me to his elite telegram group and i will advice you all seeing this review to contact him for more about mining right here.. BITCOINMININGEXPERT11 AT GMAIL DOT COM

I rarely share my story with people online and those I don't know, not only because it put me at the lowest point ever but because it made me a person of ridicule among family and some of my friends. I put all I had into Binary Options ($190,000) after hearing great testimonies about this new investment strategy. I was made to believe my investment would be triple, it started good and I got returns (not up to what I had invested). Gathered more and involved a couple family members, but I didn't know I was setting myself up for the kill, in less than no time all we had put ($420,000) was gone. It almost seem I had set them up, they came at me strong and hard. After searching and looking for how to make those scums pay back, I got introduced to Mr Chris a recovery agent who helped recover about 80% of my lost funds within a month and I was very happy so catch him up for your lost funds with Email address: Bitcoinretrieval2018 gmail com / WhatsApp: +1 (347)201-0316

I got ripped off by an investment company named cryptoallday by sending them all my life savings, I invested $70,000 of my trust-fund money and was hoping to triple my capital in a week as they promised. When it was time to withdraw my profit I was being coerced into sending more money for my cashout which I ignorantly did.. To cut the long story short I lost all the money and was left with nothing so I began searching the whole web for somebody who could recover stolen bitcoins. I searched for at least 4 months and came across different rippers again but I couldn't quit because I had nothing more to lose paying anybody to get my $100,000 (total amount I paid them).
Finally, I came across a recovery company CREDITSOLUTION63 and they did excellent in helping me recover my bitcoins. I was counseled by their group of experts and learned more about Bitcoins, at the same time recovered my total money lost, I can confidently refer anybody that was in my situation to them because I'm sure they offer genuine help. Be careful out there guys

I'd just like to add my story, I think others would like to hear it. I got involved in crypto a few years back. This was when bitcoin was only a few bucks and no one to instruct me how to make profit on it. I ended up selling all my bitcoin when it was only $7500. Easily the worst financial decision I've ever made in my life. Because of a few different reasons I didn't get back into crypto until recently, I just started trading bitcoin with this great Miner [email protected] gmailcom and i'm going to keep all my bitcoin this time. I invested 1btc into my blockchain and it has grown 1.5btc in space of 3 days All he did was to connect my wallet to His mining stream and that way i was able to realize an average of 0.5BTC, this is epic! Crypto currency will be the biggest wealth transfer of our generation. Digital Currency is turning into our generations version of digital gold. and YES it has it's ups and downs. But it's trending upwards. I know it might be hard for some to believe, but in the near future my bitcoin could be worth 100k to a million dollars easily. Trust me, Get in now while you still can
