Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten has launched its own exchange for crypto spot trading.
To ensure the security of crypto asset transaction services, Rakuten Wallet said that crypto assets owned by Rakuten Wallet and customers are physically separated and managed, and cryptographic assets owned by customers are managed with cold wallets. In August last year, it acquired crypto exchange "Everybody's Bitcoin", and earlier this year it announced plans to launch a cryptocurrency called Rakuten Coin, to be used as part of its loyalty program. Users will access this trading service through a dedicated mobile application.
Rakuten also noted through the smartphone app, customers can make transactions for crypto asset trading accounts, such as depositing/withdrawing Japanese yen and depositing/withdrawing crypto assets. The signup guide page (in Japanese) states that a "Rakuten Bank account is required to open an account".
