Relaxing Listing Rules for Cryptocurrencies

 

The Japan Virtual and Crypto Assets Exchange Association (JVCEA) is planning to loosen crypto listing rules to make it easier for trading platforms to list cryptocurrencies, Bloomberg reported Wednesday, citing a document it has seen.

The association plans to allow trading platforms to list crypto tokens without going through a lengthy screening process unless the tokens are new to Japan’s market. The relaxed rules could take effect as early as December, the publication conveyed, adding that the documents outlining the changes were recently distributed to member firms.

 

JVCEA Vice Chairman Genki Oda, who is also the CEO of cryptocurrency exchange Bitpoint Japan, confirmed the document to the publication. He believes that the JVCEA could also scrap pre-screenings for cryptocurrencies new to Japan and tokens issued through initial coin or exchange offerings by March 2024.

 

Oda noted:

 

We hope the latest measure will help revitalize Japan’s crypto assets market.

 

The JVCEA is a self-regulatory body that governs crypto exchanges operating in Japan. The organization works closely with Japan’s top financial regulator, the Financial Services Agency (FSA), to ensure its rules are in compliance with the country’s regulations. The group currently has 33 members who have started handling crypto assets, its website shows.

Oda said that over 50 cryptocurrencies are currently being traded in Japan partly due to quicker listing screenings, noting that fewer than half were traded about two years ago.
