Price data has long been offered for cryptos on Yahoo finance website, although with no indication of how to buy cryptos. That changed yesterday when Yahoo launched a new update.

Yahoo is further sticking to its crypto commitments, as it's Japanese arm reported to be opening it's own Crypto exchange. Due to open in April 2019.

In a report published in the Nikkei Asian Review earlier in April of this year; Yahoo Japan is reported to purchase 40 percent of BitARG Exchange Tokyo, instructing executives to begin laying foundations for development of an exchange.

"The purchase of BitARG shares will be made through Tokyo's YJFX, a wholly owned Yahoo subsidiary that operates foreign exchange transaction services,” the publication reports, adding that the 40% stake will cost the company 2 bln yen ($19 mln).
