Japan Blockchain Week will begin with the Web3 Summit Tokyo on June 12th, followed by the WEB3 BIZDEV SUMMIT -BLUE- on June 18th, and the IVS Crypto 2023 KYOTO from June 28th to June 30th. The IVS Crypto event will be hosted by the IVS Kyoto executive committee and will take place at the Miyako Messe in Kyoto.
The blockchain week will primarily be organized by NFTokyo, which has been promoting blockchain and Web3 since 2018, with a specific focus on NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and Fungible Tokens, and developing a healthy crypto industry. Although the venue for this year’s NFTokyo event is yet to be announced.
“Although market conditions remain difficult due to the collapse of one of the world’s largest crypto exchange in November 2022, we hope to boost the blockchain and Web3 markets, which are expected to expand further in the future. In order to further develop the NFT, crypto assets, blockchain, and Web3 related technologies covering the entire blockchain industry, we plan to invite guests from Japan and abroad to share their know-how and actively discuss the market,” their press release read.
Last December, Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) stated that they are considering to re-allow foreign-issued stablecoins in Japanese exchanges where they would have a new framework to be applied with the revised Payment Services Act by 2023. Amending the act would allow international remittances to be faster and cheaper through stablecoins. (Read more: Japan Considers Lifting Restrictions on Foreign Stablecoins After Ban)
