- Coincheck Plans to Resume JPY Withdrawals Next Week beginning February 13, 2018.
- The exchange also revealed that a temporary suspension of JPY operations was put in place to protect the assets of Coincheck customers.
- The company also said that “outside experts” are working with the trading platform to ensure withdrawals are ready for February 13th.
- The company says that, “Currently, all customer JPY assets are being stored in a customer-specific account in a major financial institution,” explains the Japanese exchange.
- Coincheck also says the JPY withdrawals are unrelated to the NEM/XEM restitution.
- Withdrawal requests will be initiated on a first come — first serve basis, and Coincheck says the company may contact certain customers separately in order to confirm withdrawal details.
- Coincheck concluded by saying,
“If further complications preventing the safe resumption of withdrawals are discovered, the resumption date may be extended in order to guarantee customer asset security,”
