Bitcoin exchange Bitfineix is up and running again after last week suffering a security breach that saw 19,756 bitcoins stolen from usersâ€™ accounts.
The bitcoins had a combined value of $77m at the time.
A week after the hack the Hong Kong-based company is restoring service and allowing exchange trading for all currencies, as well as deposits and withdrawals for a range of cryptocurrencies and US dollars.
Exchange trading will also be available for the BFX tokens that the company issued all users after its decision to skim 36% from each account to share losses for the hack across the community.
â€œIn the past week, we have taken significant steps to ensure that we can restore service in a secure environment,â€ said the Bitfinex in a statement.
â€œWe have added additional platform and infrastructure security checks; regenerated all encrypted services, including wallets, security tokens, and passwords; moved funds to multisig cold storage; re-evaluated all third-party integrations; performed a comprehensive system audit in order to identify vulnerabilities; and, rebuilt our entire platform on new infrastructure.â€
The company previously said that it is in negotiations with investors to raise more money to fully compensate all customers.
The theft from the services caused the cryptocurrencyâ€™s price against the dollar to drop from $631 to $518 in less than 24 hours.
