Japanese Startups Can Soon Opt for Crypto Over Stocks for Fundraising

Dave – Cryptocurrency Enthusiast

In a groundbreaking update from Japan on the latest cryptocurrency news front, local startups may soon be able to tap into public funds through cryptocurrency investment avenues. Instead of conventional stock offerings, these startups can now consider issuing crypto assets to bolster their funding.

Japan's premier financial news outlet, The Nikkei, brought to light that this novel system primarily targets a niche category dubbed Investment Business Limited Partnerships (LPS). Historically, Japan's approach to crypto portfolio diversification and trade crypto dynamics had been more reserved compared to global counterparts. Nevertheless, recent developments indicate a positive shift in this stance.

Taking a proactive step towards fostering secure cryptocurrency practices and legal cryptocurrency operations, the Financial Services Agency (FSA) of Japan, on Aug. 31, proposed amendments to the prevailing cryptocurrency-related tax code. A highlight of this amendment includes potentially exempting local businesses from the taxing burden of "unrealized gains" on cryptocurrencies by year-end.

In a bid to underline Japan's intent to be at the forefront of next-gen internet transformations, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, during his keynote at the WebX conference in Tokyo, shed light on the nation's commitment to the burgeoning Web3 industry. He emphasised the transformative potential Web3 holds, not just for the digital realm but also as a catalyst for societal evolution.
