Japan Cryptocurrency License

Japan offers one of the world’s largest economies and stable democracies. Despite offering tax rates and structures similar to the United States, Japan’s business climate is widely viewed as being favorable and relatively easy to negotiate. As an industrial leader, Japan is a party to over 100 tax treaties, including a tax credit treaty with the United States.

Despite the size of its economy, Japan’s government has largely been receptive to cryptocurrency, while countries such as the United States continue to sit on the sidelines. Japan’s commitment to becoming a forerunner in the distributed ledger technology space is exemplified by the high rate of cryptocurrency adoption by the nation as a whole. Japan has amassed the second largest base of cryptocurrency wealth, second only to the United States.

Japan is an ideal jurisdiction for obtaining a cryptocurrency license. Japan’s Payment Services Act offers a Virtual Currency Exchange license that is enforced by the Japanese Financial Services Agency. The robust license covers various cryptocurrency-related activities, including the operation of cryptocurrency exchange and initial coin offerings.

Advantages of a Japannese Digital Asset Business License

Average daily trading in Bitcoin alone exceeds $20 billion. The streamlined and cost-effective process in obtaining a Japanese cryptocurrency license can place you in this lucrative market in as little as three months. As worldwide adoption of cryptocurrency increases, cryptocurrency exchanges are estimated to have taken in over $1 billion in profits last year alone. With increasingly complex cryptocurrency regulation in leading economic nations such as the United States and European Union, Japan offers a cost-effective, risk free alternative for starting a licensed cryptocurrency exchange or broker-dealer.
