As such, the financial regulator does not plan on implementing or enforcing excessive rules. Toshihide Endo, commissioner of the Financial Services Agency (FSA), told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday that the Japanese government agency and integrated financial regulator — which is responsible for overseeing banking, securities and exchange, and insurance sectors — is primarily interested in finding the right regulatory solutions that both protect consumers and encourage innovative growth.

Japan notably became the first country in the world to officially regulate cryptocurrency exchanges following the high-profile hack of the Tokyo-based cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck early this year.

As a result, multiple exchanges temporarily or permanently suspended their operations. Coincheck

The FSA commissioner also told Reuters that some regional banks should be seriously considering how to effectively construct long-term business models in the face of what may turn out to be tough times for the traditional banking industry in Japan.
