Bitbox charges a 0.1% commission and supports 15 languages, including English, Korean, Chinese, Spanish, French and German. In Russia, the US, Japan and some other countries, the exchange is not available.

At the beginning of the year, Line Group applied for a license to the Japan Financial Services Agency, but the process dragged on because of tightening of the regulator's requirements in the light Coincheck exchange hack. All crypto exchange, wishing to provide services in the Japanese market, are required to obtain permission from the local regulator.

Currently, Line is also in the process of obtaining a license in the US. The company decided to open its first trading platform for crypto-currencies in Singapore, as this city-state adheres to a progressive approach to the regulation of the digital currency sphere.

With cryptocurrency, we are going to take our challenge in financial services global.
