Since it was announced that Bitcoin will be legal tender in Japan Remixpoint have announced that they will allow payments through this method. They can pay using BTC when their customers want to use their partner’s services for plane tickets.
Infoteria who share rocketed last week by 58% are testing ways the blockchain can help shareholders vote using the technology. Fisco which is an early stage BTC exchange has seen a 26% rise in its share price since the new BTC law was passed in Japan.
Since September the price of Bitcoin has doubled in value against the dollar and the high level of interest in Japan is what is the catalyst of this rally. It has taken away from smaller Japanese companies listed on the stock market. Most investors prefer to put their money into crypto instead.
