BitFlyer has announced support for the travel rule solution "Travel Rule Universal Solution Technology," abbreviated as "TRUST," which would apply to all corporate and individual customers who deposit and send crypto assets on the crypto exchange.
It gives the travel rule compliance start date and time as Tuesday, May 30, 2023, at around 3:00 p.m.
