Japan recently made its regulations more strict and updated its existing laws to define the cryptocurrency assets more prominently. Joerg Schmidt and So Saito from So & Sato recently commented on stricter regulations for cryptocurrencies in Japan saying, “The market is highly regulated in Japan. What seems to be a regulatory overkill, at first sight, is likely to help the market to mature in the mid to long term. This will allow more institutional players to enter the market and to increase their stake in the digital asset space.”
