The biggest security crypto hack just happened with Coincheck (Japan) – and it’s bigger than the infamous Mount Gox collapse. You can see this article: Coincheck Confirms Crypto Hack Loss Larger than Mt Gox The total dollar amount hacked of the NEM cryptocurrency (no other cryptos were affected) was roughly $400 million – some sources say $533 million – compared to Mt Gox’s estimated $340 million. Coincheck confirmed Friday that the hack, now likely the largest ever in the space, occurred on its servers early afternoon local time in Tokyo. Shortly after it discovered the theft, the exchange suspended trading of NEM, the stolen crypto in question, then of the other dozen coins it lists. Coincheck is looking into compensating its customers, its executives also announced – which is different from Mount Gox where there was a total loss for investors. The amount is unknown at this time. So given this hack, we have to talk about security. Anything that is connected to the internet can be potentially hacked. These are all hot wallets – because they are hot on the internet. You should consider holding a cold storage unit – like the one we recoommend with Ledger Nano S. When you plug it into a standard mini USB to full-size USB cable to a computer – the device will turn on and you can begin configuring it by pressing the two buttons at the top together. Step 1) Use Google Chrome- adnd search for the Ledger Wallet There’s different apps – a Ledger Wallet Bitcoin for bitcoin and a Ledger Wallet Ethereum for ethereum. If you have both bitcoin and ethereum, you’ll want to download both. Step 2) Add the Chrome Extension for the Ledger Wallet Bitcoin/Ethereum As the picture shows – you click the Add button.
