posted about 2 months ago
Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Taotao plans to launch its trading service on May 30th. Taotao, which is 40% owned by internet giant Yahoo! Japan’s YJFX, will offer trading in Bitcoin (BTC).

The start date brings ends a year-long process since Yahoo! Japan closed the 40% percent equity deal in the exchange, then called BitARG, in April 2018. The company paid a rumored 2 billion yen ($18M) for the stake. Notably, several Japanese platforms reported increases in new account openings over the past 2 months.
