Japan is Calling

Over the past few months, we have seen an increase in activity surrounding digital securities, within the island nation of Japan.  One company which has found themselves at the center of these developments, on multiple occasions, is none other than Securitize.

Securitize has continued along their path into the country with another recent acquisition of a small company, known as BUIDL.

Details of the Acquisition

For the time being, details on the acquisition are scarce.  Securitize has not divulged the amount of money this move required, nor the amount of equity they acquired.

What is clear, however, is that companies are showing an increased interest in Japan, since steps were recently taken to clarify the framework surrounding the digital securities sector.
