At his meeting with journalists, Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso asked journalists to use a new term for cryptocurrency. Before that, they were called “virtual currencies”, which is now somewhat inconsistent with reality. According to the official, the word " cryptoassets " more fully reflects the essence.
However, he did not insist on such a transformation. However, in the laws and regulations currently being drafted, the legislators focused on the word cryptoassets. The authorities are now somewhat tightening the cryptocurrency turnover procedure, which was associated with loud hacking exchanges in 2018. But they do not hinder development. During the last month, two more trading platforms received a work permit from the FSA.
