Japanese SBI Holdings’ subsidiary SBI Financial Services has acquired London-based cryptocurrency trading firm B2C2, boosting its plans to launch a digital asset trading service, Reuters reported today.

 

“Their vision, expertise and offering complement SBI’s, and we look forward to working in partnership as we expand our footprint across the global markets,” said Yoshitaka Kitao, president and CEO of SBI Holdings.

 

However, the companies did not disclose any financial details of the deal. In July, SBI reportedly acquired a minority stake in B2C2, allowing its clients to trade crypto via the platform.
