1- First and foremost, the world’s first bank-owned cryptocurrency exchange opened in Japan.  Japanese financial giant SBI Holdings formally launched its cryptocurrency exchange platform, on Tuesday, calling it VCTRADE.  The launch came nearly two years after its initial announcement and after months of delays this year.
