Advantages of a Cryptocurrency License in Japan

In 2021, cryptocurrency transactions over Japanese exchanges jumped 51% to $900 billion. Additionally, the value of average daily trading in Bitcoin exceeds $20 billion. Taking part in Japan’s cryptocurrency and digital investment market can significantly benefit a business.

Obtaining a Japan cryptocurrency license is a fairly quick and cost effective process; a license can be granted in as little as three months. And with leading markets like the United States and the EU subject to complex regulations, Japan offers a lower risk alternative for starting a licensed cryptocurrency exchange.

Why a Japan Cryptocurrency License?

Japan is one of the world’s largest, flourishing economies and has stable governments — which makes it a profitable market for investing in digital assets like cryptocurrency. 

When it comes to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, Japan’s regulatory landscape is one of the most progressive. It is the first country to set forth self-regulatory bodies with the establishment of the Japan Virtual and Crypto Assets Exchange Association (JVCEA) and Japan Security Token Offering (STO) Association. Both organizations are responsible for mitigating the growing Anti-Money Laundering concerns.

Japan’s commitment to properly regulating this new market has spurred the adoption of cryptocurrency across the country and made it a global forerunner. 

Ready to apply for a Japan cryptocurrency license? Japan’s Payment Services Act offers a Virtual Currency Exchange license that is enforced by the Japanese Financial Services Agency. 

Obtaining a license ensures your business can participate in a variety of cryptocurrency-related activities, including access to cryptocurrency exchange and initial coin offerings.
