It’s been just a couple of days when Japanese Financial Services Agency (FSA) distributed a list of digital currency trades. Half of these trades are as of now authorized while the other half is at present under the audit in the wake of applying for a license.

The FSA’s list has been because of the Coincheck hack where about $530 m worth of NEM was stolen. Aside from issuing a business improvement request to Coincheck, FSA likewise led an on location investigation of the trade.

As indicated by a Japanese Media Source, moreover, the office likewise requested an internal examination of all the digital currency trades in Japan. This examination depends on an agenda of 43 things that incorporates the report of risks and business management system as given by FSA. These things will give every detail of the system to manage the client assets and measures to counter the cyber attack.

At the point when FSA chose to search for any security gaps and requested for the reports, it additionally said if there should arise an occurrence of any vulnerability they would follow up with an onsite check. The FSA would fundamentally audit these reports and afterward settle on a choice of whether a specific trade needs an onsite review.

The most compelling motivation for the Coincheck hack was its poor safety efforts against hacking and cyber attacks. The trade was essentially dealing with the digital currency resources of its clients through a system that was associated with the Internet.

A year ago, Japan turned into the first nation to regulate the trades at the national level. The hack has acquired the defenselessness in exchanging an asset in the light that the policymakers of different nations are attempting to regulate.
