The Biggest Railway In Japan Plans To Accept Crypto

Japan is really serious about crypto. The country clearly wants to be at the forefront when it comes to mass adoption of cryptocurrencies. After the news about the launching of Yahoo! backed crypto exchange, more exciting information appeared.  

The biggest railway and subway operator in the country – Japan Railways Group (JR Group) – is looking into an option to accept crypto payments. Just think about it: millions of Japanese use railway/subway daily – if this is not mass adoption of crypto payments, what is?

According to the local media, JR Group is thinking to create a crypto venture to handle payments; it could also be an exchange or even an in-house payments infrastructure. They’ll come to a viable option, and there is little doubt about that. The most important thing, however, is the fact itself: a traditional corporation looks into crypto payments as part of its services.
