The Japanese company, which achieved unicorn status after funding put its valuation at more than $1 billion last month, says the new venture will be known as Liquid Financial USA.
The new venture has already acquired IQX, a company which is registered with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.
Kariya Kashimori, the co-founder and CEO of Liquid Group, said:
“The United States is one of the world’s largest markets for the virtual currency industry, and our community and clients and institutional investors are widely interested in providing services in the U.S. market.”
Liquid says it is now building a team in the U.S. with a view to serving customers there by the start of 2020.
