posted 6 days ago
A senior executive of the US based crypto exchange Coinbase said he is confident the firm will receive an operating license in Japan next year, even while regulators in the country are stepping up scrutiny of crypto exchanges.

Mike Lempres, chief policy officer of Coinbase, said that the process of getting a license is "going well" with the Financial Services Agency. He added that the company is "committed to getting it done [which will] certainly be in 2019... The Japanese government is more focused on security, that is good for us."
