Japanese FSA to Support ‘Crypto Freedom’ Under Proper Regulation

In a recent interview, the head of the FSA confirmed that he believes that it is possible to find a healthy middle ground between consumer protection and technological innovations.

Toshihide Endo, the FSA commissioner, stated that the agency does not intend to stifle innovative technologies, on the contrary, the government is interested in their further development.

As a reminder, back in July the FSA mulled changing the legal methods of regulating crypto trading companies in the country by categorizing virtual coins as financial tools rather than means of payment and initiated massive checks of exchanges.
