Coincheck, an exchange that suffered a $500 million hack, in line for license

Financial Services Agency (FSA), Japan's financial regulator, will approve a cryptocurrency exchange license for Coincheck according to Nikkei. Coincheck was hacked in January and 532 million NEM worth roughly $500 million were stolen. In April, the founders sold their ownership to Monex for $33 million and in October, Coincheck reopened new user registrations. According to Nikkei, nearly 200 companies are currently waiting for licenses.
