Simpler with Blockchain

Comment from bitFlyer CEO Yuzo Kano:

“I am extremely pleased that the leaders from each G7 country understood the capabilities of this innovative technology, blockchain. By implementing blockchain technology, many processes performed by each country’s administration systems can be simplified by a single platform and could be stretched across the entire country to coordinate administration systems, which we anticipate will improve the convenience of societal systems.”
