IOST continues to expand the Japanese market

As the country with the most compliant trading platforms globally, Japan is also a pioneer in creating digital asset regulatory systems. The Financial Services Agency of Japan oversees the Japanese digital currency market and states that digital currency trading platforms must apply for licenses to operate in compliance. The highly compliant and strictly regulated Japanese market is also highly recognized by global crypto investors.

The FSA remains rigorous in its checks, always demanding complete compliance from cryptocurrency exchanges, and has steadily improved and raised the threshold. IOST is the 29th compliant coin in the Japanese market, approved by the Financial Services Agency, Japan’s Trading Platforms Supervision Alliance.

In addition, the nodes supporting IOST’s decentralized ecosystem include top-tier crypto-asset exchanges, game developers, and renowned law firms and investors from Japan. Japan ranks second in the total vote totals for its top 10 countries.
