August 19, 2019 Japanese online retailer, Rakuten, has publicly launched its crypto exchange, Rakuten Wallet.

The platform currently operates only as a mobile app for Android phones but plans to launch an iOS version in September. Rakuten Wallet allows for spot trading of BTC, ETH and BCH and has partnered with blockchain security firm CipherTrace to implement AML measures. The degree to which Rakuten Wallet will be integrated with the rest of the firm’s services, which generate $7B in annual revenue, is unclear at this time.
