Korea's Bithumb Exchange Allegedly Loses Millions of Korean Won due to Hack

The value of a bitcoin was a small fraction of a cent in value.

Some colleagues criticised my approach. This is another black day for Bitcoin exchanges all over the world.

Litecoin is in high demand across Asian cryptocurrency exchanges these days. I really believe, that those, who catch the moment with digital currencies today, will definitely enjoy great profits tomorrow'. Afterward, they proceeded with a phishing campaign, calling up users one at a time, posing as representatives of Bithumb.

Do you think South Korea will follow Japan's footstep and legalize bitcoin? From there, make sure to do your own research and carry out due diligence on the wallet services you plan to use. In this instance, the hacker allegedly accessed ten million won, the equivalent of roughly £6,740 ($8,700). The target eventually handed over a slew of key account information. His role in making SegWit and the Lightning Network possible was vital. States are warming up to them. For one, bitcoin is primarily used for consumer payment transactions. The range of services for obtaining and trading in these coins is dizzying, and many methods are brand new, untried, and untested. Bitcoin also has the highest market capitalization when compared to other cryptocurrencies. The same story notes that some 100 customers may have lost hundreds of millions of won, with one person having lost 1.2 billion won after the hack.

However, the exchange said passwords were not stolen or published and no funds stored on the exchange were accessed directly.

The country's Internet watchdog, Internet & Security Agency, is said to be investigating the attack. For context, one billion won is equal to around $870,000, or £670,000. Arbitrage opportunities will be hard to come by, for the time being.

Crypto-currencies are just the tip of an iceberg. One cannot make money by simply trading in them. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin follow a carefully defined protocol for creating new units of accounting. This is because value is not in the accumulation but in the exchange.

SegWit is far more detailed than this, but hopefully this helps you understand why it's a benefit.

As part of the hack, a total of 31,800 Bithumb users' details were obtained including their phone numbers and email addresses that the organisers of the exchange claim is approximately 3pc of its users. The system is distributed and transparent.

Experts hailed the move, which came in line with Tokyo's fresh set of bitcoin regulation introduced in May.

EOS drops more than 40%.

A cryptocurrency (colloquially referred to as 'cryptos') is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange and uses cryptography to secure the transactions and control the creation of additional units of the currency.
