Cryptocurrency exchange Zaif announced on Thursday that a recent hack has resulted in the loss of 5,966 bitcoins (BTC) and a total of $60 million USD worth of bitcoins, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and MonaCoin (MONA). However, the size of the theft could be larger since the total number of lost BCH is still unknown. The Japan-based licensed platform said the intrusion took place last week when operators noticed suspicious withdrawals at 5 pm local time. The unusual activities led to the immediate suspension of all transactions and subsequent criminal investigation.
