System Glitch at Japanese Crypto Exchange Mistakenly Gives Bitcoin Away for Free System Glitch at Japanese Crypto Exchange Mistakenly Gives Bitcoin Away for Free

A system error at a Japanese cryptocurrency exchange saw a user attempt to make off with a huge amount of bitcoin, according to reports.

The exchange voided the trades after discovering the error, which happened on February 16 - though it was still trying to resolve the issue with one customer who tried to transfer the knock-down bitcoins from the exchange, a spokesman told Reuters.

The news came after Japan's finance minister Taro Aso announced that the FSA has begun examining the security measures of local crypto exchanges. The exchange did not say which cryptocurrencies those were.

Unfortunately for Zaif, one of those customers who purchased Bitcoin while the glitch was active has been unwilling to accept the mistake and has been fighting to keep his profit from purchasing the free Bitcoins.

Would Do You Think: Can Chelsea Beat Barca in Spain
It won't be easy because we are talking about Barcelona and also tonight they showed themselves to be a fantastic team. However, Conte defended his tactics, saying it would be "crazy" to approach facing Barcelona any other way.

It is one of the 16 Japanese exchanges licensed by FSA, which has been quite busy with its cryptocurrency charges and the $530 million heist of Coincheck in the end of January.

As at least one "buyer" attempted to resell their Bitcoin, an abnormally high quantity of the cryptocurrency appeared for sale on Zaif, and word soon spread on the Internet that around 2,200-trillion-yen worth of Bitcoin was on sale there.

The technical issue was quickly fixed, and the exchange is in the process of resolving the issue with customers. The sell order was for more value than the entire market cap of Bitcoin, which sits at more than $183 billion.

The self-regulatory body is expected to set guidelines focused on exchange advertising and security, in addition to penalties should members fail to comply with the rules.
