Scandalous incident~Stolen Cryptocurrency~


Many of you must be surprised to hear news that about $530 million valued of Cryptocurrency, “NEM”, were stolen at Coincheck KK, the second largest Cryptocurrency trading company in Japan.




I am sure that some of you might be embarrassed by the news.
The first, you think that typical Japanese don’t like risky investments such as investments in stock or gold etc. Japanese must love CASH!!

The second, Japanese Government is one of quite a few countries where Government regulates Cryptocurrency based on laws by FSA.

As for the first point, Japanese have bilateral characters, we love cash but also some of us tend to be crazy about Gambling.

As for the second issue, the Japan Payment Act controls arrange Transitional Measures to Cryptocurrency trading companies which would apply for the registration as “A Certified Company”.

Coincheck KK is under the transitional measures after 1st of October, 2017.

Above all, the most important to read serious of the news is that we Japanese usually call the company “trading company”. However, exact to say, the company mainly runs sell and buy many of Cryptocurrency with customers.

大学卒業後、官僚として働く。NYに遊びに行った時、ウォール街をぶらついていた時の軽い閃きから、公認会計士を目指そうと思い立ち、心機一転、電卓も使えないのに公認会計士試験の勉強を始める。 1年後無事合格するも、当時は公認会計士は大変な人余り状態、かなり苦労をして中堅監査法人に就職・・・。 しかし、仕事と上司には恵まれ、株式公開準備業務、国際部の立ち上げなど貴重な体験を経て、図らずとも独立。その後、事業会社のCFOや社外役員などを経験し、ブランドプリペイドカード発行事業を手掛けるなど、涙と笑いに包まれた経験を続ける。時々、当初の思惑と現実のギャップに日々苦闘と笑いを繰り返す毎日を過ごしている。 In English
