Despite a number of serious cyber attacks on large cryptoexchanges, Japan continues to attract financial capital to popularize cryptocurrencies and is seeking to take a leading position in this market.
According to a number of prominent investors, Japan is not going to abandon its goal to become the first country in which the cryptocurrency will become absolutely legal.
“Their total amount, according to our expectations, may be about $ 9.2 billion, but at this stage it will be very speculative, “said Takashi Shiono, an economist at the Tokyo division of Credit Suisse.
The government of the country expects that the capitalization of the growing interest in cryptocurrencies will be an excellent foundation for the entire Japanese economy.
The government’s strategy is to attract international investors the maximum freedom of crypto currency in this country, while the whole world will try to limit it by various means, experts say.
“We are interested in controlling the crypto currency, and not in its prohibition,” explains Takashi Shiono.
