South Korean police check Bithumb on cryptocurrency exchange

On April 15, the South Korean police inspected the external server of the local cryptocurrency exchange Bithumb. It is reported that Bithumb had internal personnel committing crimes on March 29, stealing 14.3 billion won (about 84.63 million yuan) of security incidents, but the user's assets are safely stored in the cold wallet. Immediately after the police directly asked for an investigation, the police said that such cases generally use external servers, PCs, mail accounts and other external channels to seize assets. Therefore, the police conduct inspections to ensure the information needed to track external channels.
