Japan to Further Relax Crypto Rules by Easing Listings of Tokens

  • Crypto association plans looser screening as soon as December
  • Move adds to signs that Japan seeks revitalized crypto sector

Japan plans to further loosen cryptocurrency rules by making it easier to list virtual coins, potentially burnishing the country’s allure for Binance and rival foreign digital-asset exchanges.

The body that governs crypto exchanges plans to allow them to list coins without going through its lengthy screening process, unless the tokens are new to Japan’s market, according to documents seen by Bloomberg News.
