IOST’s Rising Popularity in the Japanese crypto community

IOST hit a significant milestone as it became the 29th compliant coin in the Japanese market, approved by the Financial Services Agency (FSA), the Trading platforms supervision Alliance in Japan, and was the 14th coin listed on Japan’s most compliant exchange CoinCheck.

IOST’s solid development track record in Japan was unparalleled. The coin was voted as the most popular potential coin on Huobi Japan, outperforming ENJ, NEO, ONT, QTUM and XTZ.

Earlier this year, IOST’s announcement of the Japan yen-backed stablecoin JPYA launch has also driven more attention to the project and its use case in the Japanese market.

Potential developers in Japan can benefit from the IOST Japan team’s regular Free Developer Course. At the time of the press release, IOST is co-hosting a two-day hackathon event, in collaboration with Japan’s Kindai University to foster the growth of blockchain education and applicability.
