Japan even went so far as to offer J-coin, but in the pool with his head not yet dived.
“It will be tied to the Japanese yen, and we hope that payments and transfers will be made through an application for mobile phones” — said the representative of Mizuho Financial Group, one of the institutions leading the step.
