    For those who thought things couldn’t get worse for Coincheck, the reality is very different. The mounting lawsuits are a big problem already, but it’s only the tip of the iceberg. According to BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group, the stolen funds have been laundered through a Vancouver-based exchange. That in itself is pretty worrisome, although recovering the money is no longer an option. It is evident the theft of Coincheck’s funds has been a cause of concern. With 500 million NEM stolen, things are not looking good. So far, there has been no trace of this fund whatsoever. If the BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group is to be believed, they found how the money was laundered. It seems a Canadian exchange is involved in this particular development. This is the result of an internal investigation, although few details have been made public ...
