Three trading pairs go live
Confirmed in a press release on Aug. 19, Rakuten Wallet, which is a subsidiary of Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten, said spot trading of three cryptocurrencies — Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) — was now live.
In future, developers plan to release an app for iOS and Android, use of which will be mandatory for deposits and withdrawals.
“Customers who already have a bank account with Rakuten Bank will be able to easily open a Rakuten Wallet account simply by entering the required information on the online application form,” the press release added.
