Huobi Japan Raises $4.6 Million From FPG To Expand Its Operations

Published

Huobi debuts

The Japanese branch of the major cryptocurrency exchange Huobi is in the latest cryptocurrency news. As the updates show, the licensed crypto exchange Huobi Japan has raised 5 million yen (a sum translating to $4.6 million) from the Financial Products Group (FPG) which is a financial instruments business operator.

This development was first revealed in an official press release that was shared with many news sites on October 25. In it, Huobi Japan shows that as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the major Singapore-based crypto exchange Huobi, is serious about serving traders in a better way.

For those of you who haven’t been following our Huobi news, the platform serves traders across over 130 countries. It launched this January as a fully compliant entity after a major merger with BitTrade – one of the only 16 exchanges who have secured a license under the aegis of Japan and its national finance regulator, the Financial Services Agency (FSA) back then.

Today’s announcement shows that both FPG and Huobi Japan will jointly focus on providing strong support for the financial assets and payment methods. In addition to this, the FPG Group noted that it is anticipating a possible future collaboration with Huobi Japan to further the digitization of Japan and its securities market by combining its expertise as a financial instruments business operator powered by Huobi’s blockchain technology.

We can see that a license has been mandatory for all the cryptocurrency exchanges operating within Japan ever since the amendment of the country’s Payment Services Act back in April 2017. The FSA evolved increasingly strict requirements for license applications in the wake of a new and major $532 million hack from back in January 2018 of the local exchange Coincheck.

We can see that at the time (January 2019), Coincheck went on to secure an FSA license. the other regulator-approved exchanges include LVC Corporation (a digital asset and blockchain focused arm of the Japanese messaging giant LINE) which was granted a similar license this September.

Founded in 2013, Huobi Group has been headquartered in Singapore with many branches such as Huobi Japan that have been expanding. The exchange blossomed and moved to Singapore ever since the Beijing crackdown on domestic crypto-fiat exchanges in September 2017.

The Singapore-based Huobi exchange is in the crypto news today for announcing that its Moscow division will soon start accepting RUB for deposits. As the release notes, users of Huobi Russia would be able to deposit rubles into their wallets via bank transfers. An event in Moscow showed the exchange asserting that it would soon launch its own token listing service, too. Now, HBRU CIS will be in charge of the transactions processed through a bank in Uzbekistan. As the CEO of the Huobi exchange in Russia, Vladimir Demin said, HBRU CIS has secured approval from the Uzbekistan Justice Ministry. As such, the country is starting to look like a crypto-friendly nation which encourages people to invest in crypto through tax reduction and other incentives. The exchange will also be working with local institutions such as InfinBank and Demin. The Moscow division of the Huobi exchange will also develop its own exchange platform along with the creation of the RUB deposits. This would allow it to launch initial exchange offerings (IEOs). The platform enables users to choose a different selection from what the Huobi Prime launchpad grants. Before this, any project that aimed to launch a new token could only do it through the Huobi Prime. However, the new IEO platform by the Huobi exchange plans to have its own token to launch soon, which will be for the fees linked with their service. The Chinese branch of the Huobi Group recently announced its membership in the blockchain-based services network (BSN). The Huobi news at the time showed that the Chinese branch managed to reaffirm its relationship with the Chinese government by establishing a Communist Party of China branch in its local blockchain subsidiary named Beijing Lianhuo Information Services LLC.
“The network would be tested in 54 cities across the country as well as Hong Kong and Singapore for projects such as smart city management,” Wenchao Shi, president of China Union pay said.
The Huobi news also show that Huobi Global is meeting regulatory requirements and the exchange is on a good way to ramp up its user base and bring it to new heights.
