EliteCenter organizes a new Lisk meetup in Tokyo, the Asian Capital of Cryptos
EliteCenter is going to hold a new event on Friday 4/26, a meetup regarding the Lisk ecosystem in Japan. Since the beginning Lisk has attracted many blockchain enthusiasts from Japan and Elite Center has worked to promote Lisk in this country and the entire east Asia.
During the event, Lisk will be presented to beginners and experts, with detailed explanations on the use of the Lisk’s wallet – Lisk Hub – and on the voting system, in particular about how to vote and pay dividends. The main speaker is BRADY LUO, co-founder and CEO of everiToken. He is a staunch supporter of the global economy based on blockchain technology. He worked for the New York Oppenheimer Funds alternative asset investment and the MITSUBISHI UFJ securities, the largest Japanese financial group.
Japan is far ahead regarding regulation and adoption of cryptocurrencies. This feature can also be found at the political level. A few months ago, for example, the lawmaker Takeshi Fujimaki proposed four tax reforms regarding cryptocurrencies in order to promote a wider spread of virtual currency in the society. More recently, the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzō Abe, has expressed the wish that the next G20 meeting should focus on the issues raised by the spread of cryptocurrencies and how they could be regulated globally. The event will be held in Osaka in June, and it is believed the Prime Minister will have a considerable influence on the subject.
Furthermore, the Japanese government hopes for an international agreement on cryptocurrencies, with a consequent taxation that avoids situations of conflict between countries that could lead to obvious contradictions as well as to problems of interpretation, in view of the cross-border nature of the phenomenon.
Meanwhile, within that nation, the interest in cryptos finds actual results. The FSA, the nation’s leading financial regulator, has granted licenses to two new exchange, that will be able to provide cryptocurrency exchange services in the country. In particular, the institution approved the license application presented by Rakuten Wallet Co. Ltd. and Decurrent Co. Ltd. Rakuten is the largest e-commerce company in Japan with over 102 million users, as well as the fourteenth-largest internet company in the world for annual turnover.
Currently, Japan has 19 authorized crypto exchange operators and the FSA has stated that there are 140 entities that have expressed an interest in entering the cryptocurrency exchange market in Japan, including those that have already carried out preliminary consultations and investigations.
