The process of registration as a cryptocurrency and trading business was completed in September 2017. The trading platform featured only XRP initially but later Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash was added. Since then, they have made significant progress in terms of total trading value and popularity.

There are only a handful of government-approved cryptocurrency exchanges in Japan and this is one of them. So far, it has been open to only a limited number of pre-registered users. However, it is to change very soon. According to SBI, the full-scale launch is scheduled for this month. The company hopes that will be able to bring a flow of users from its huge customer base onto the trading platform.
