  • MicroStrategy wants to hire a Bitcoin software engineer to build a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform on the Lightning Network.

MicroStrategy, a top business intelligence firm that’s the largest corporate holder of Bitcoin (BTC), is looking to hire a software engineer to help build a Lightning Network-based enterprise platform.

Bitcoin software engineer to build SaaS platform 

On Friday, the US-based technology company announced it was on the hunt for an individual who will be tasked with developing a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform. 

According to the firm, the new platform will offer innovative solutions around cyber-security challenges to enterprises as well as enable new e-commerce use-cases.

The engineers at MicroStrategy are working on some exciting new Lightning apps to help our enterprise customers secure networks, monetize websites, and deploy wallets en masse using Bitcoin,” MicroStrategy Executive Chairman Michael Saylor tweeted, urging those interested in joining the team to apply for the position.

Among other qualifications, one is required to have experience in developing software solutions that leverage the Bitcoin blockchain and Lightning Network, or decentralised finance (DeFi) technologies.

Saylor left his role as MicroStrategy CEO early last month to become the Executive Chairman, stating at the time that he was taking the step to focus more on the company’s Bitcoin strategy. 

Just this month, the company purchased an additional 301 bitcoins to bring its total holdings to 130,000.

Crypto exchange Binance has reentered the Japanese market after acquiring a 100% stake in Sakura Exchange BitCoin (SEBC), a regulated cryptocurrency exchange in Japan.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • SEBC is a Japan Financial Services Agency (JFSA) regulated entity.
  • By acquiring SEBC, Binance aims to offer Japanese-regulated services through the exchange.
  • At the time of the Binance acquisition, the Tokyo-based exchange supported 11 trading pairs; mainly cryptocurrency-Japanese Yuan pairs.

Despite the tense situation in the crypto market following the collapse of FTX which seems to be taking other crypto entities like BlockFi down with it, Binance seems to be spreading its wing further and further. The SEBC acquisition comes weeks after Binance pulled out of its planned FTX rescue plan citing issues with FTX’s financial book.

Expanding into Japan

In the past few years, Binance has been expanding its business across various countries as it stamps its authority within the crypto space. So far, the crypto exchange has secured regulatory approvals in France, Italy, Spain, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, New Zealand, Kazakhstan, Poland, Lithuania, and Cyprus.

The acquisition of Sakura Exchange BitCoin marks the exchange’s first entry into East Asia. Most importantly, SEBC is already a regulated entity which means Binance will be able to offer regulated services in Japan, which is a major economy in East Asia.

In a press release announcing the acquisition of the Japanese exchange, the general manager of Binance Japan, Takeshi Chino, said:

“The Japanese market will play a key role in the future of cryptocurrency adoption. As one of the world’s leading economies with a highly-developed tech ecosystem, it’s already poised for strong blockchain uptake. We will actively work with regulators to develop our combined exchange in a compliant way for local users. We are eager to help Japan take a leading role in crypto.” 

At the time of the acquisition, SEBC offered customer consultation services and crypto brokerage services supporting 11 crypto-Japanese Yuan trading pairs. The trading pairs include BTC/JPY, ETH/JPY, BCH/JPY, XRP/JPY, LTC/JPY, ETC/JPY, XEM/JPY, MONA/JPY, ADA/JPY, XYM/JPY, and COT/JPY.
