Japan headquartered bitcoin exchange BTCBOX announced today the company now supports Litecoin and Ethereum dealing. Bitcoin was the only other cryptocurrency listed, along with Bitcoin Cash support, from August’s fork. BTCBOX was one of the first group of companies approved for a license to operate in Japan under the country’s newly instated “bitcoin exchange” regulations.
In July of this year, the company announced it had established a Hong Kong company in order to bring its crypto exchange global, with an English based platform. The Hong Kong location would also serve as a backup for the company information and computer systems. BTCBOX had a small operation for Chinese users, but had ceased operating on July 23rd, going to Hong Kong for registration is also way to maintain international customers, if the exchange can’t keep its China based users.
CEO of BTCBOX David Zhang is pictured below from September 29th, displaying the company exchange license approval letter.
