Binance kicks off transition to new platform in Japan By Cointelegraph



After five years out of the Japanese market, crypto exchange Binance has begun the process of establishing a new and fully regulated subsidiary in the country. The move follows the acquisition of the regulated crypto exchange Sakura Exchange (SEBC) in November 2022.

As part of the deal, SEBC will cease its current services by May 31 and reopen as Binance Japan in the coming weeks. Users of the exchange’s global platform in the country will have to register with the new entity. The migration will be available after August 1, 2023, and will include a new identity verification process (KYC) to comply with local requirements.
