The vulnerabilities and cyber attack looks never stop so far. Do you still remember virtual currency exchange Coincheck lost $400 million in NEM cryptocurrency in Jan 2018?

The hack only involved NEM, because the security breach was caused by the lack of strong security measures of Coincheck with regards to their implementation of NEM, lacking the use of mutlisignature support or a cold wallet.
