Online trading platform Plus500 Ltd. (PLUS.LN) said on Tuesday that its first-quarter revenue increased almost fourfold from the prior year, as new customers signed up to trade in cryptocurrency derivatives and volatile markets.

Coincheck Inc., the cryptocurrency exchange that lost about $500 million of customer deposits to hackers in January, was acquired by Monex Group Inc. in a deal that sent shares of the Japanese retail brokerage soaring to a five-year high.

Monex will pay 3.6 billion yen ($34 million) for Coincheck and agree to split profits with current shareholders for the next three years, the company said in a statement on Friday.
