Japan to allow startups to raise funds by issuing crypto instead of stocks: Report


The Japanese government reportedly plans to permit startups to raise public funds through the issuance of crypto assets, such as currencies, instead of stocks, local media has reported. 

According to Japanese financial news site The Nikkei, this updated system is specifically applicable to a category of funds known as Investment Business Limited Partnerships (LPS). So far, Japan has lagged behind the rest of the world in embracing digital assets. However, this has been changing in recent months.

Japan’s primary financial regulatory authority, the Financial Services Agency (FSA), made a significant move on Aug. 31, seeking to amend the tax code related to cryptocurrencies, thereby taking a more active role in cryptocurrency regulation. The noteworthy move is aimed at exempting local businesses from the year-end “unrealized gains” tax on cryptocurrencies.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida reaffirmed the country’s commitment to fostering the Web3 industry in a keynote address on day one of the WebX conference in Tokyo, Japan. He highlighted its potential to transform the internet and kindle social change.

Binance recently confirmed to Cointelegraph that it would offer its services to Japanese crypto users from August onward. This happened after the company acquired the local exchange platform Sakura Exchange Bitcoin in November 2022, which paved the way for Binance’s reentry into the country.
