Existing customers in Japan can migrate to the local subsidiary from Aug 14.
Users can access spot trading, earn products, and an non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace. They will be able to trade 34 tokens, including the Binance Smart Chain's native token BNB, which is available in Japan for the first time.
