Yahoo!-Backed Exchange Scheduled for May Launch

Japanese exchange Taotao will start trading in May of this year. The exchange will open trading with a limited range of cryptos.

Taotao, is 40% owned by a Yahoo! Japan subsidiary, will trade Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin (BTC) with margin positions in three additional cryptos: Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and XRP.

Prospects will be able to sign up and partake in a purely promotional giveaway scheme.


The plans became public knowledge in March 2018, when Japan’s arm of Yahoo! Revealed that it would buy a major stake in Taotao through its subsidiary, YJFX.

During that time, sources conversant with the matter insisted the purchase had cost Yahoo! 2 billion yen ($19 million).

Taotao Move a First in the Crypto Industry

This initiative marks the internet giant’s first steps into the crypto exchange sector. Taotao has reportedly gained regulatory approval and given the green light to launch in Japan.

According to an earlier report by Cointelegraph, the Japanese authorities have tried to impose stringent regulation or monitoring on entities looking to launch exchanges in the country. This move was set in full swing after several infamous hacks put a spotlight in country’s crypto industry.

Coincheck is reported to be the victim of the largest hack. This occurred when tokens worth half a billion USD were stolen by hackers in January 2018. Coincheck has managed to enter the market once more following a buyout.

Earlier in March, new regulations specifically relating to cryptocurrency margin trading gained approval.
