Coincheck briefly suspends the "sell" button

Coincheck, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in Japan, temporarily stopped processing XRP sell orders, according to its recent Twitter announcement. The functionality was later restored by the trading platform.

The suspension came after the token gave up a substantial portion of its gains. It dropped as much as 30 percent in one hour after soaring to a multi-month high of $0.75 on Bitfinex amid what is believed to be a coordinated effort to artificially drive up the token's price by several pump groups.
