It’s been a long road back for the Coincheck cryptocurrency exchange.

A January hacking resulted in the theft of more than $500 million in the NEM (XEM) cryptocurrency. Several months later, the exchange was bought by Japanese online brokerage Monex Group. In October, Monex said Coincheck’s third-quarter revenue fell to less than $3 million from more than $8 million in the first quarter.

But now Monex has announced Coincheck has reinstated services for all the listed cryptocurrencies on its platform.

As of Monday the exchange resumed depositing and purchasing services for the XRP and factom (FCT) tokens, the last of the nine digital currencies it traded at the time of the hack, CoinDesk noted. The others, already reinstated, include bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), ether classic (ETC), litecoin (LTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), XEM and lisk (LSK). Other services are also being prepared for resumption, Monex said in its release. Read more here.
