In a Jan. 15 announcement on Binance’s Japanese support website, the exchange revealed it would restrict access to residents of Japan at an unspecified later date.
The restriction is said to be implemented gradually, with details to be revealed later, according to the announcement.
Currently, there are no restrictions in place and Japanese users are able to operate the exchange normally.
Binance was previously headquartered in Japan after exiting China. As Cointelegraph reported in March 2018, the exchange moved its operations to Malta following an official warning by Japanese regulators due to its lack of a national exchange license.
