OKCoin Japan, the subsidiary of one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, OKCoin, has announced that their Japan-based exchange would start to support TRX today.

Users of the said exchange would be able to start depositing TRX this February 14th at 5 PM JST and also mentioned that the TRX trading would launch on the 21st of this month.

As a result of the additional support for TRX, OKCoin Japan would now be handling 12 cryptocurrencies on their platform.

Japan has been very strict when it comes to regulating cryptocurrencies and just this year with the popularity of cryptos in the country, more Japanese firms are planning to test a bank-backed cryptocurrency called “DCJPY”.

Asides from OKCoin Japan, there are only a few cryptocurrency exchanges that support TRX such as BITPoint and Huobi Japan just to name a few.

Currently, most of the population in Japan still prefer to use traditional ways of payment transactions, and as crypto started to steadily grow in Japan, more businesses started accepting Bitcoins and other tokens, for example, an electronics retailer, Bic Camera, accepts payments by Bitcoin.
