Binance Japan has announced the inclusion of 13 new tokens on its platform for Japanese users, scheduled for November 27.
This move will bring the total number of tokens on the exchange to 47, solidifying its position as a major cryptocurrency platform in the country.
Among the newly added tokens are well-known protocols like Near Protocol (NEAR), Optimism (OP), and Arbitrum (ARB).
The inclusion of these assets enhances the diversity of Binance Japan’s token offerings, catering to the preferences of a wide range of users.
The list of added tokens includes $HBAR, $NEAR, $ARB, $OP, $GRT, $IMX, $RNDR, $MANA, $EOS, $GALA, $APE, $KLAY, and $LSK.
Importantly, Binance Japan highlights that these tokens are already part of other reputable exchanges in Japan, indicating that they may receive swift approval from the Japan Virtual and Crypto Assets Exchange Association for use on Binance Japan.
In the context of recent exits from the Japanese market by Coinbase and Kraken, this announcement becomes significant.
Binance Japan aims to capitalize on this opportunity to expand its market share and fill the void left by its competitors.
Takeshi Chino, the general manager of Binance Japan, sees this growth as part of their broader mission to offer 100 tokens in Japan.
He underscores the company’s commitment to expanding service options in Japan by leveraging international experience and blockchain technology.
