OKCoin, one of the “world’s leading blockchain explorers,” will expand its services to Japan thanks to a new license it recently acquired.

The exchange will call itself OKCoin Japan, and potential users can start applying now by using this link.

“Utilizing OK Group’s superior technology and products, we will start providing attractive crypto exchanges for individual and corporate investors in Japan. Specific services and schedules will be announced again,” reads a press release, translated from Japanese.

Overseeing the exchange is OK Group, a company with over 1,000 employees as of this year, the press release notes.

Since OKCoin released in 2013, it has expanded from China into Europe, the Philippines, Malaysia, and the United States. On top of this exchange, the group plans to expand the development of blockchain technology via partners overseas.

As of now, the exchange will list Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and Ethereum Classic. It is likely to expand shortly after launching.

Recently, OKCoin was in the news for adding support in Singapore. On top of this, the platform started accepting the local dollar there.

“OKCoin Japan will soon launch its exchange service in Japan targeted to meet the investment needs of both individual and institutional traders,” the press release concludes.
