BANZAI (万歳)! Japan takes legal plunge on Bitcoin

The most important step in Bitcoin’s evolution will be when your local shop/pub/restaurant accepts the currency i.e it’s everywhere, it’s normal, it’s what people use nowadays. Sure, that maybe a while off right now but a Government entity of an economic powerhouse such as Japan recognizing Bitcoin as a payment method is one huge leap forward.

Was it unfortunate that this came out on April Fool’s Day? Probably, but the important thing is that it’s not fake news, not an April Fool but a stone-cold reality.

Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
