KuCoin Exchange Reopens Bitcoin, Ethereum Withdrawals After $281M Hack

Following the $281 million KuCoin hack two weeks ago, the exchange blocked all deposits and withdrawals. Now, it seems that their new security measures are in place as they restart services for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Tether. 

KuCoin Reactivates All 71 Cryptocurrencies
