As countries around the world get stricter on crypto companies, Japan tends to take its own path. Huobi Group, the digital asset exchange company, announced yesterday that thanks to a merger with BitTrade, Huobi Japan has relaunched itself as a fully regulated exchange under Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA).

With BitMEX closing accounts overseas in fear of reprisals amid the worldwide crackdown, this news has come like a breath of fresh air. Leon Li, Huobi Group Founder, and CEO appeared delighted with the news stating:
