Yahoo Japan-Backed Crypto Exchange Taotao Launches This Week
A new crypto exchange platform in which Yahoo Japan owns a major stake is about to launch after over a year in development.
Taotao is regulated as a virtual currency exchange business under Financial Services Agency, with its website proudly displaying the registration number 00001.
That early registration comes via the exchange's previous FSA-licensed iteration, the BitARG exchange, in which Yahoo Japan bought a 40-percent stake last March.
According to the Taotao website, the exchange will be offering a mobile app alongside its online platform, and will offer trading in bitcoin (BTC) and ether (ETH) at launch.
