Cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex, which lost $72 million to hackers last week, told customers Sunday they would lose just over 36 percent of the assets they had on the platform but would be compensated for these losses with tokens of credit. The Hong Kong-based exchange said losses from the theft would be shared, or "generalized," across all the company's clients and assets, widening the group of those affected announced last week.The company said it would also give all affected clients a "BFX" token crediting their losses that could be redeemed by the exchange or for shares in iFinex, the exchange's parent company.
