SBI Holdings CEO linked with Craig Wright
For quite some time, it has been seen that there are some close links of SBI Holdings with Craig Wright. Wright is a person who is suspected to be Satoshi Nakamoto, a person behind bitcoin’s invention and a person who also backs BSV. Yoshitaka Kitao, CEO of SBI Holdings is very well known for his strong friendship with Craig Wright.
In 2018, Kitao has completely criticized the move of separating BSV from the BCH. He believed that this move is completely meaningless and in response to this, both will lose huge investors.
Japan’s new crypto laws are about to be enforced
Over the past few months, it has been seen that SBI Holdings have been showing a great interest in the digital currencies. But it might see some complications in the coming months because of Japan’s new cryptocurrency laws.
It has been already announced that Japan is all set to regulate new cryptocurrency laws in the next month. The Japanese government has passed the Payment Services Act and Financial Instruments and Exchange Act. These acts have been passed particularly to regulate the crypto exchanges across the nation. Through several reports, it came out that these laws will be enforced across the country from May 01.
