A popular cryptocurrency exchange in Japan experienced a temporary glitch that allowed investors to purchase cryptocurrency including Bitcoin for free-though no users were able to profit off of the issue.
Zaif, one of Japan's major cryptocurrency exchanges, said seven clients managed to get bitcoins for free, during a 20-minute system glitch last week, reports Reuters. The exchange did not say which cryptocurrencies those were.

The body will set out rules for security and advertising, and will set penalties for members who don't follow the policies, the Nikkei business daily reported. The Coincheck heist exposed flaws in the system, and - for some experts - raised questions over Japan's dash to regulate the industry amid crackdowns by countries from China to India.
