Japan headquartered bitcoin exchange BTCBOX, announced today that it now supports Litecoin (LTC) and Ethereum (LTC) trading. Previously, Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BTC) were the only other cryptocurrencies supported.
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 further serve as a backup for the company information and computer systems.
Up until recently, BTCBOX was operating a small exchange for Chinese users, but ceased operating it on July 23rd. Going to Hong Kong for registration is a way to sustain international customers.
