The Japanese bitcoin exchange Taotao, which is 40% owned by Internet giant Yahoo will launch its trading platform on 30 may, at the initial stage of proposing to trade Bitcoins (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), reports Cointelegraph.
Margin trading will also be available in Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP) Bitcoin and Cash (BCH) in addition to BTC and ETH.
It has been over a year since then, as Yahoo in April 2018 has completed a deal to buy 40% stake in the exchange, which was then called BitARG. The company paid rumored to be 2 billion yen for the stake, demonstrating her growing interest in Japanese cryptocurrency sector.
Taotao originally planned to debut on the market in mid-may, but was postponed at the last minute to run, without naming of reasons.
