Cryptocurrency exchange Binance announced Wednesday that it has acquired 100% of Sakura Exchange Bitcoin (SEBC), a Japanese crypto exchange service provider that is regulated by Japan’s top financial regulator, the Financial Services Agency. The announcement explains:

Through this acquisition, Binance enters the Japanese market as a Japan Financial Services Agency (JFSA) regulated entity.

“By offering Japanese-regulated services through SEBC, Binance aims to support a responsible global environment for cryptocurrencies,” the announcement adds.

The Tokyo-based crypto exchange SEBC offers brokerage and consultation services to its customers. The trading platform currently supports 11 trading pairs: BTC/JPY, ETH/JPY, BCH/JPY, XRP/JPY, LTC/JPY, /JPY, XEM/JPY, MONA/JPY, ADA/JPY, XYM/JPY, and COT/JPY.

Takeshi Chino, general manager of Binance Japan, 言った:

The Japanese market will play a key role in the future of cryptocurrency adoption. As one of the world’s leading economies with a highly-developed tech ecosystem, it’s already poised for strong blockchain uptake.

“We will actively work with regulators to develop our combined exchange in a compliant way for local users. We are eager to help Japan take a leading role in crypto,” he continued.

Binance exited the Japanese crypto market in 2018 following a warning by the Financial Services Agency about operating without a license. In June last year, Binance got another warning from the regulator reiterating that the exchange has been providing crypto exchange services to Japanese customers without registration.
