Binance, a crypto exchange, is said to be looking to reenter Japan’s crypto market. After warnings from Japan’s financial regulator that Binance was operating without a license, the company left Japan four years ago.

Bloomberg reported Monday that crypto exchange Binance seeks a license to return the Japanese crypto market four years after it left the country.

Binance spokeswoman said that the company was “committed” to working with policymakers and regulators to create policies that protect consumers, promote innovation, and move the industry forward. However, she would not comment on specific applications for licenses, noting that it would be inappropriate to comment about any conversations with regulators.

Binance ceased trading in the Japanese crypto market after a warning from Japan’s top financial regulator, The Financial Services Agency (FSA), regarding operating without a license. Binance received another warning in June 2017 from the FSA, stating that it had been providing crypto exchange services for Japanese customers without registration.
