*By [Journalist’s Name]*
CoinX, a prominent virtual currency exchange, has recently resumed its deposit and withdrawal services following a massive hacking attack that cost the platform approximately 90 billion won, allegedly orchestrated by a North Korean-affiliated hacking group known as Lazarus.
The resumption of services comes as a relief to CoinX customers, who can once again engage in transactions on the platform with increased security measures. The exchange had temporarily halted its operations following the cyber attack, but has now taken steps to restore trust and confidence among its user base.
Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, is currently trading at 36,568,000 won per 1 BTC on Bithumb, one of the largest virtual currency exchanges. In comparison to 24 hours ago, the price has slightly risen by 0.53%, indicating a stable market performance.
Meanwhile, the top 10 major cryptocurrencies traded on Bithumb show a mixed trend in terms of prices. Ethereum, the second-largest digital currency, is experiencing a slight decrease of 0.27% and is being traded at 2,192,000 won per 1ETH. Similarly, Binance Coin is being bought and sold at 289,100 won, signaling a decrease of 0.65%.
On the positive side, Dogecoin, Solana, Dai, and Polkadot have seen higher prices than 24 hours ago, with increases of 0.99%, 0.71%, 0.45%, and 0.54% respectively. Conversely, Ripple, Ada, and Tron have observed price drops of -0.01%, -0.82%, and -0.18% respectively.
It is worth noting that CoinX’s hacking incident resulted in a loss of approximately $70 million (93.7 billion won). Nevertheless, the platform has taken swift action to resume its deposit and withdrawal services. Cointelegraph, a leading media outlet specializing in virtual currency news, reported, “CoinX has reopened its deposit and withdrawal services for coins and Ethereum, ensuring that customers can safely transact once again.”
In light of the security breach, CoinX has advised its customers not to deposit funds into their old addresses, as doing so may result in permanent loss of assets. This cautionary measure underscores the exchange’s commitment to protecting its users’ investments.
According to blockchain analysis firm Elliptic, the hack on CoinX has been attributed to the notorious Lazarus hacking group with links to North Korea. Investigations into the incident are ongoing, as industry experts analyze the trail of the attack.
As CoinX recovers from the hacking incident and reinstates its operations, the virtual currency community remains vigilant, emphasizing the importance of heightened security measures and user awareness in this rapidly evolving landscape.
