Fisco will now be in charge of refunding users from Japanese crypto exchange Zaif’s hack, which should begin this month.
Tech Bureau, the company that formerly operated hacked Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Zaif, has completed its handover to buyer Fisco Cryptocurrency Exchange (FCCE), Cointelegraph Japan reported Nov. 22.
FCCE, which agreed to take over proceedings in October, will now assume responsibility for compensating users who lost money in the hack, which occurred Sept. 20 and involved funds worth around $60 million at the time.
According to a press release from FCCE, compensation proceedings should begin before the end of this month.
No timeframe has yet been set for deposits and withdrawals at Zaif to resume.
Confirming the move, Tech Bureau said it planned to dissolve its entity and retire from the cryptocurrency industry.
“We will abolish the registration of our virtual currency exchange and plan to dissolve,” the company wrote in a statement.
The hack occurred as both authorities and the Japan’s new self-regulatory crypto group are beefing up application requirements for the country’s new cryptocurrency exchange licensing scheme.
