Blunder at a Japanese Cryptocurrency exchange let investors briefly buy bitcoins for free. – Says BusinessInsider

A blunder at a Japanese cryptocurrency exchange let investors briefly buy bitcoins for free – though none were able to profit from the mistake.

Zaif, a government-registered exchange run by Osaka-based Tech Bureau Corp, said on Tuesday that a system glitch had let seven customers buy bitcoin with no yen value during a 20-minute window last week.

Zaif is one of 16 exchanges registered with the government, which last year allowed a further 16 – including Coincheck – to continue operating pending full registration.
