Intial Coin Offering & Cryptocurrency

Recently, with the development and research of blockchains, businesses concerning cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin are experiencing a massive growth.


Cryptocurrency is now considered a method of payment and remittance; a method called Initial Coin Offering (IPO), in which a business raises capital by issuing a cryptocurrency, is gathering world-wide attention.


Therefore, cryptocurrency business has laid the groundwork for more business opportunities, such as the opening/managing of cryptocurrency exchanges, payment and remittance businesses using cryptocurrency, operating ICOs and ICO-related assistance and consulting.


However, as the field of cryptocurrency business is still a field in development, many points are still open to debate and do not have an accepted legal theory and interpretation. Plus, Japan's finance industry sets a stringent self-regulation policy, requiring businesses to research on the legality of their business model and monitor the movements of the legislative and administrative agencies.
