Binance finally completes its move to reenter the Japanese market as it officially launches its Japan subsidiary on August 1. The largest crypto exchange by volume made this known via a blog post on its official website.
According to the announcement, residents in Japan can now access Binance’s services when trading cryptocurrencies. Existing users residing in Japan with access to the global Binance accounts will be able to migrate to the new platform after August 14 by completing a new KYC (ID verification) process.
Binance’s reentry to the Japanese market was made possible after the successful acquisition of Sakura Exchange BitCoin [SEBC] – a licensed local cryptocurrency exchange service provider in November 2022. The launch date was initially set for June, however, CEO Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao confirmed the new date to be in August.
We’re proud to announce that #Binance has officially launched in Japan as Binance Japan K.K.
Users in the country now have access to more tradable tokens than any other exchange, with Spot and Earn products available.
