In past few months, cryptocurrency market in Japan has changed dramatically. Recently, Japan’s executive branch of government, known as the Cabinet, has approved a set of bills aimed at modernizing the Japanese payments industry and giving recognition to virtual currencies like bitcoins for having a “function similar to real money.” This announcement has potential to boom cryptocurrency trading market in Japan.
