Happy New Year from the bitFlyer USA team! 🎉 As we dive into 2024, our Group CEO, Yuzo Kano, shares his heartfelt reflections and aspirations for the year ahead. Check it out here!
Celebrating 10 Years of Growth
This year, bitFlyer Group proudly marks a decade of innovation and growth. As we begin a New Year, we would like to extend our gratitude to our valued customers for being an integral part of our remarkable journey.
A New Dawn in 2024
Following a prolonged “crypto winter,” 2024 brings a palpable sense of renewal. CEO Yuzo Kano’s return in the past year positioned bitFlyer Group for a promising spring. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we eagerly prepare for a fresh chapter under a new organizational structure.
A Glimpse into 2023
In 2023, Yuzo Kano, as the Representative Director of the Japan Blockchain Association (JBA), played a pivotal role in advocating for crypto asset tax reforms in Japan. These reforms aim to enhance the landscape for crypto asset financing, attracting foreign investment and fostering a robust environment for token issuance. Furthermore, market trends have shifted, with Bitcoin rising 156% throughout the year. While there are various factors at play, this is partly attributed to speculation that a bitcoin spot ETF may soon be approved by US authorities. Looking at the market, the long winter is coming to an end and spring will soon be upon us.
Outlook and Aspirations for 2024
After implementing stringent regulations in 2018, Japan has emerged as a global crypto hub. Compliant firms like bitFlyer have been rewarded, as the rules continue to become more clear and business-friendly. bitFlyer is committed to making 2024 rewarding for customers, leveraging compliance and technological advancements.
CEO Yuzo Kano emphasizes bitFlyer’s mission to “Simplify the World with Blockchain.” With the principle of “One Team, One Dream,” bitFlyer aspires to become “Asia’s No.1 web3 company” over the next decade.
Join us on this exciting journey, and cheers to a year filled with innovation, growth, and shared success!
