Bitcoin Exchange MtGox Collapses, Bitcoin Holders Suckered ...

Bitcoin Is Now Legal In Japan. Could More Support From Other Countries Take Ot To The Next Level?

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 68%. (I'm a bot)
Bitcoin trade in Japan accounts for almost 50% of the global trade volume compare that to the US which contributes around 25%. The number has surged since the government passed a new law earlier this year recognizing the digital currency as a legal form of payments.
There are already more than 4500 stores that let you pay with Bitcoin.
Mai Fujimoto, also known as Miss Bitcoin in Japan, has been blogging and tweeting everything about Bitcoin.
She started investing in Bitcoin back in the year 2011 when Bitcoin's price was roughly around $10, a price that has jumped more than 500% since.
Three years ago the first major Bitcoin exchange Mt.Gox collapsed and declared bankruptcy after hackers raided its accounts.
With Bitcoin still banned in China, Japan can possibly take the lead. However, for Japan, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin sit within the realm of Fintech.

Cryptocurrency exchanges about to take off in Japan (Nikkei)

May 2, 2017 2:00 am JST - Tax cuts, higher standards are boosting demand for bitcoin-like investments
Investors in Japan will have an easier time trading virtual currencies like bitcoin as more exchanges crop up. TOKYO -- More than 10 Japanese companies are launching exchanges for bitcoin and other virtual currencies, with an eye to tap growing demand after legal changes that make such trades cheaper and easier in the country.
SBI Holdings has set up SBI Virtual Currencies, an exchange between the yen and cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and that of the Ethereum platform. The GMO Internet group is also establishing its own company, with plans to increase the number of digital currencies it trades based on demand. Kabu.com Securities and foreign exchange trader Money Partners Group plan to enter the field as well.
Starting July, Japan's consumption tax will no longer apply to purchases of virtual currencies. Exchanges in Japan have also been required since April to obtain a special license, which has requirements for finances and asset management structures, from the Finance Ministry.
"We didn't even have minimum guidelines" back in 2014, when the bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox collapsed, "so users will now feel more secure," an SBI Virtual Currencies representative said.
Around 18 companies are currently planning to apply for a license, according to the Japan Cryptocurrency Business Association. This includes the more than 10 companies newly entering the market, as well as existing exchanges like bitFlyer. Japan's three megabanks, however, are not planning at this time to start trading digital currencies.
Many new players are interested in turning such currencies into a new investment option. The price of bitcoin has tripled in the past year, and some estimate the total value of all virtual currencies at over 4 trillion yen ($35.8 billion). "There is demand among our clients for cryptocurrencies, given their rising value," said a source at one company.
But the currencies tend to have low liquidity and high volatility. Because a large volume of bitcoin trading occurs in China, that country's monetary policies have a significant impact on its value. Some foreign banks are also refusing dollar wires to and from virtual currency exchanges.
Digital currencies still occupy a small space in Japan. But they could catch on as a cheap way to settle payments and transfer funds in the future.
