Hi, Hakka, thanks for the information.

How do you think Japanese society is receiving the crypto world? Is there a general acceptance??
I am quite curious about how, you know, your neighbours maybe, feel about crypto. In here, mostly all my friends think crypto is a massive scam. They don't trust Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency!!
