        A Japanese company listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange has begun accepting applications for cryptocurrency-secured loans. Samurai & J Partners Co. Ltd. (TYO:4764) recently launched a loan program called Samurai Crypto Loan through its subsidiary, Samurai Asset Finance (Samurai).


        The company explains that loans will be offered to crypto owners with BTC, BCH, or ETH as collateral. Customers will have access to funds in Japanese yen without having to liquidate their crypto positions. In Japan, liquidating cryptocurrencies could incur taxes of up to 55%, as news.Bitcoin.com previously

 reported.

        Samurai first proposed to enter the crypto-secured lending business in May. The proposal was presented to and subsequently approved by its board of directors. The company has also established an overseas subsidiary to launch an initial coin offering (ICO). “We will conduct an ICO and expand our business scope,” Samurai announced at the time.

        Recently another Japanese company, Abic Corporation, announced a loan program secured by BTC. Abic’s loan terms range from 2 million yen (~US$18,260) to 1 billion yen (~$9.13 million) with annual interest rates ranging from 2.98% to 15.0%. Customers can borrow for a period of one month to five years; the delinquency charge is 20% annually.

        Last week, crypto financial services platform Libra Credit partnered with Binance Labs, the investment arm of Binance, to “lend fiat and crypto denominated assets to users who pledge BNB [binance coin] as collateral,” the firm detailed.
