As mentioned above, this exchange is a perfect platform for beginners. Because its simple and easy user interface has made it easy for new users to find their way and not have problems. The exchange site has two languages, Chinese and English, but Zaif programmers are trying to add more languages to the site.

Has Zaif exchange Hacked?

Zaif Digital Exchange, which is based in Japan, decided to stop trading for a while after being hacked in 2018. Even users were at risk of losing their assets. Fortunately, Zaif returned to normal without any problems.

However, the incident severely damaged Zaif's reputation. Many users withdrew their assets from Zaif and transferred them to other exchanges. For this reason, the stock market went through difficult days.

Fortunately, security measures have now been stepped up and users are slowly returning. Zaif later sued Binance Exchange. The reason for this was that the stolen money was transferred from Zaif to Binance companies, and even the stolen money was tried to be laundered in Binance.
