Now, one is willing to stay on the back foot; almost every leading technology giant is trying to penetrate the cryptocurrency world. The Japanese economy is boosted due to technological advancement. 

Japan is one of the most developed nations in terms of technology. Most recently, two companies were interested in launching a crypto wallet. According to regional Japanese media outlet Project Design Online, NTT Digital will launch its wallet at the end of this year.   

It has partnered on the project with the US-based now(dot)gg platform; the wallet is designed/developed for corporate usage. The wallet will be termed Scramberry Wallet.  

NTT is known as the largest and most prominent telecom provider and is ranked 55th Fortune company in the world. 

The available data states that Scramberry Wallet is a digital wallet that can hold crypto assets and NFTs and is being developed for ease of use, safety, and security. 

Blockchain Technology has created several opportunities for investors, as decentralized currency is considered the future of physical currency. Rough data claims that there are over 8 million crypto users in Japan. 

However, owning and investing in cryptocurrencies is not restricted in Japan; the Payment Service Act defines “crypto assets” as payment methods that aren’t denominated in fiat currency and can be used to pay bills and other expenses.

Some Japan-Based Crypto Projects 

Izumi Finance is a liquidity mining service operating on Uniswap V3 based in Tokyo, Japan; Original Gamer Life is a blockchain-based company based in the region. 

SushiSwap, a renowned DEX based in Tokyo, Japan, was founded in 2020; it gathered funding from HyperChain, Platinum Capital, GoldenTree Asset Management, and Fantail Ventures. 

BitFlyer is known as Japan’s largest Bitcoin and blockchain company, which is also termed the most used exchange in the region.
