Reportedly Japan is taking further steps to prevent Russia from escaping Western sanctions over its current evasion of Ukraine. On March 28, it was reported that government officials would change the country’s foreign exchange law to allow the inclusion of cryptocurrencies, thereby preventing Russia from using the property class to overcome financial constraints.

An amendment to the Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Act will be sent to Parliament for review, informed Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno at a news conference. The decision came as Prime Minister Fumio Kishida called for revisions.

Although, the changes to be made in the amendment are not clear. Officials are still at a preliminary stage to discuss what the amendment would look like, Broadly speaking, the amendment is believed to “apply the law to crypto-asset exchanges such as banks and force their clients to verify that they are Russian sanctions targets”.

In the previous month, state officials called on cryptocurrencies exchanges to cooperate with sanctions imposed on Russia. Unauthorized payments for grants are punishable by up to three years in prison or an $8,500 fine.

Currently, crypto exchanges require a license to operate and previous restrictions have led to the termination of BitMEX services for Japanese customers. It also works during the registration process for crypto assets, where popular tokens are added to the green list.

Japan is in the middle when it comes to regulating cryptocurrency. Although crypto assets are popular in the country, the government also wants to comply with exchanges and public market laws. Authorities have repeatedly said they do not want crypto to be used and support illegal activities.

The market has become so popular that social media companies are launching crypto ventures. LINE launches a blockchain network and recently announced NFT Marketplace.

The Financial Services Agency (FSA), the country’s financial regulator, currently oversees crypto market regulation. Banning privacy-centric cryptocurrencies such as Zcash and Monero is the most important step it has taken.

The FSA continues its work with the Japan Virtual Crypto Asset Exchange Association to prevent those on the sanctions list from using crypto. It is also in the early stages of negotiations without revealing any important details about the same.
