Coincheck has been searching for an investor since Jan-2018, when USD530 million worth of cryptocurrency had been stolen from the organisation in the largest heist in history. The deal is supposedly worth several billion yen for the majority stake in Coincheck. The news also sent the company's hares up 23% on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
