Binance Japan to Launch Operations in June

Binance June will see the launch of services in Japan.
The largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, Binance, plans to introduce its services in Japan in June through Sakura Exchange BitCoin (SEBC), a locally purchased platform. A notice released on Friday states that SEBC would cease operations at the end of May and begin providing cryptocurrency exchange services in June under the provisional name Binance Japan. So, in order to avoid the platform automatically liquidating all cryptocurrency holdings on June 5 and returning the funds to customers’ linked bank accounts, the local Japanese exchange has asked its users to liquidate their cryptocurrency holdings and withdraw fiat to their bank accounts.
SEBC does not permit the removal of cryptocurrency assets from its exchange platform, in contrast to other exchanges. Moreover, it will stop accepting deposits in both fiat money and cryptocurrency by the end of April. As of right now, eleven trading pairs are supported for trading.
Binance entered the Japanese cryptocurrency industry last November when it bought a hundred shares in Sakura Exchange BitCoin. When it comes to cryptocurrency services, Japan is a highly regulated industry. Exchanges must obtain local licences in order to operate, and the Japan Virtual Currency Exchange Association must approve new listings. Since the Japan Financial Services Agency (JFSA) oversees SEBC, the acquisition eliminated Binance’s need to apply for a new licence in order to conduct business in Japan.
A year after Binance was warned by Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) for offering services in the nation without permission, SEBC was acquired. At the time, Bybit and other well-known exchanges were highlighted by the Japanese regulator.
In the meantime, Binance has recently encountered a few regulatory obstacles. After looking into Binance’s derivatives operations, the Australian financial market authority revoked the exchange’s local licence. Furthermore, Binance and its CEO are the target of a lawsuit brought by the US Commodities Futures Trading Commission, which claims numerous regulatory infractions.
