The exchange said that about 3.5 billion yen ($ 32 million) of money was stolen and 2.5 billion yen is attributed to customers. Hot wallets related to hacking include five cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Ripple, according to Bloomberg .

Bitpoint's problem is more than a year since hackers earned $ 400 million from Coincheck, one of Japan's biggest password exchange deals. Blairberg Bloomberg instructed the national financial authorities to take preventive measures and strengthen security controls after such trials.

Customer received an email warning Bitpoint that he would investigate the issue and discontinue the service.
