Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck has resumed depositing and purchasing services for the Ripple (XRP) and factom (FCT) tokens.

The move, which was announced earlier today by Coincheck-rsquo;s parent company Monex Group, marks the full reinstatement of trading services for all cryptocurrencies that were listed on the platform as of late January, when the exchange was targeted by hackers that managed to steal over $500 million worth of NEM (XEM) tokens. Coincheck was forced to suspend its operations in the wake of the hack and was acquired in April by Monex, which spent next several months rebuilding the business and implementing improvements required by Japanese regulators. Last month Coincheck finally started accepting new Japanese users again and in mid-November it resumed NEM trading on its platform. Today-rsquo;s reinstatement of XRP and FCT means that it users now have access to Coincheck-rsquo;s full portfolio of cryptocurrency offerings, which also includes Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum Classic (ETC) and Lisk (LSK).
