Japanese bitcoin exchange bitFlyer has officially launched in the US after receiving approval from regulators like the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS).

"BitFlyer is proud to have been granted a BitLicense to do business in the state of New York," CEO Yuzo Kano said in a statement. "This is a nod of approval from one of the most influential state financial services regulators in the nation."

Though the exchange will initially allow for only bitcoin trading, bitFlyer indicated that it would move to add support for additional cryptocurrencies over time.
