HashPort joined the “Digital Currency Forum”.

HashPort Inc. (Minato-ku Tokyo, Founder: Seihaku Yoshida, referred to as “HashPort”) is pleased to announce that join the “Digital Currency Forum”. The forum is managed by DeCurret Inc. (Chiyoda-ku Tokyo, Founder: Kazuhiro Tokita, referred to as “DeCurret”) to consider the payment Infrastructure for digital currency in Japan.

About “Digital Currency Forum”

From June to September 2020, a study group was held to examine the settlement infrastructure for digital currencies in Japan. The study group was attended by leading Japanese companies and experts from a wide range of fields including banking, retail, transportation, and information and communication, and relevant ministries as observers.

This study group has been discussing the practical use of a “digital currency based on the Japanese yen issued by the private sector” to improve the efficiency of existing businesses, reduce operating costs, and create new services.

The “Digital Currency Forum” has been established as an extension of this study group, aiming to conduct a proof of concept (PoC) for more specific use cases. In the future, subcommittees will be established for each business category to deepen the study of use cases.

HashPort hopes to contribute to the practical application of digital currencies in Japan by sharing the knowledge of its crypto-asset auditing services and consulting.
