Coincheck announced last week that it will be repaying Monday this week customers who lost funds in the hack that had hit the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange last January.

In the face of sanctions from the government, Coincheck will be repaying around 46 billion yen ($431.6 million) to investors affected by one of the biggest cryptocurrency hack ever. It has also resumed normal trading and withdrawal last Monday.

Japan watchdog, the Financial Services Agency, also took action against six other exchanges and ordered them to improve measures against risk and use of cryptocurrency by criminals.
