The largest cryptocurrency exchange of Japan, bitFlyer, has declared to start trading of new coins which soon would be added on to its exchange.
On April 09, 2020, while making an announcement, bitFlyer, stated that the exchange would start the trading of Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) which belongs to Brave, in Japan.
Last time in December 2019, the exchange lend its support to Ripple (XRP) and after that, this would be the first the bitFlyer would be listing a new coin on its exchange.
A few months ago, the FSA allowed the trading of BAT. Its trading was started on GMO Coin, an exchange registered with FSA.
While many of the industries have limited their resources due to the crisis, the Brave is experiencing a surge in its users.
According to the report, Brave is very much concerned about its user’s privacy therefore, it regularly works on it and that is also somewhere a reason for its success.
Brave was introduced as a privacy-oriented rival of Google Chrome, in the market. It has been so good in protecting the data of every individual user that, since the year 2018 to 2019, its users were doubled.
On March 16, 2020, the decentralized browser registered a complaint with the Irish General Data Protection Regulation enforcer, against Google. In its complaint, Brave alleged that Google has been behaving very irresponsibly with the private data of its users.
The chief policy and industry relation officer of Brave, Johnny Ryan, claimed that the multimedia giant has very dubious operational policies and it has been violating the regulations set by the GDPR rulebook.
In the year 2017, the Browser sold BAT worth $35 million during initial coin offering and that too in less than a minute.
A report added that in March 2020, another Japanese crypto exchange, GMO Coin, started trading BAT.
