即时通讯平台Line计划推出加密货币交易所

近日,即时通讯巨头Line公司宣布,将推出自属品牌的加密货币交易所BITBOX。

其官网信息显示,BITBOX将于7月正式开始运作,但服务并不会覆盖美国和日本市场。而市场猜测,两国近来严格的监管风向可能是造成这一决策的主要原因。

事实上,另外一家行业领先的交易所Binance也计划将其业务转移初了日本(尽管它最初否认可能需要采取这项行动),而这种做法更是验证了市场的猜测。

据悉,BITBOX将至少提供30种不同的加密货币交易,但Line公司并没有透露具体的币种名称,但是比特币(BTC)、以太币(ETH)、比特币现金(BCH)和莱特币(LTC)均被肯定在列。此外,BITBOX将只允许交换加密货币,并且不接受法币和加密货币之间的交换。

BITBOX平台将提供15种语言支持。然而有点可笑的是,日语居然不在这15种语言之内。

其实,早在今年1月市场中就出现了有关Line要建立加密货币交易所的报道,有消息称Line已经向日本金融服务局(FSA)提交了许可证申请。

除加密货币交易外,该公司可能还计划将交易所与移动支付服务Line Pay整合在一起。Line Pay进入服务市场已经有一段时间了,目前累计注册用户已经突破4000万。

Tokyo-based messaging titan Line is gearing up to launch its own cryptocurrency exchange desk – but the service will not be immediately available to all users.

In an announcement on its website, the company said its new undertaking, called BITBOX, is set to take off in July. Unfortunately, the service will not be available to users in the US and Japan, which is where the messenger was initially founded. But this is hardly surprising in light of the recent regulatory crackdowns in the country.

Indeed, leading exchange desk Binance also opted to move its operations out of Japan not so long ago (even though it initially denied that a move might be necessary).

BITBOX will offer at least 30 different cryptocurrencies and support 15 languages. Ironically, Japanese won’t be one of these languages.

“Line strives to create and provide innovative financial services unique to LINE in order to close the distance between people and money,” the company wrote. “BITBOX only allows the exchange of cryptocurrencies, and does not accept exchange between fiat money and cryptocurrencies.”

Unfortunately, the announcement stopped short of disclosing what currencies will be available, but it did mention that Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Litecoin (LTC) will be on the list – not that any of these should come as a surprise to anyone.

Reports that Line is working on a dedicated exchange desk first surfaced back in January, when the company revealed it had filed a license application with the Japanese Financial Service Agency (FSA).

It will be interesting to see how the company rolls out the new service to its 700 million users worldwide. It also remains to be seen how the company plans to integrate the exchange desk with its mobile payment service Line Pay, which is already available within the app and boasts more than 40 million registered users.
