“According to Domingo, Japanese investors are very active in the blockchain space, and Japan has comprehensive laws on cryptocurrency regulation, although it has had trouble making a clear distinction between digital assets and cryptocurrency.

Decentralized Finance Surges 

“The Decentralized Finance (DeFi) ecosystem continues to attract new users and capital as new products and services launch. The total value of assets locked into the DeFi ecosystem surged to a new all-time high last week, hitting US$1.52 Billion according to DeFi Pulse. The DeFi vision is to create a decentralized financial system that offers the same financial products and services seen in traditional finance without the need for a central authority. One of the core tenants of DeFi is composability, a design feature meaning that the components of a system can be connected to each other. In this way, the different products and services in the DeFi ecosystem can be linked together to create new products.”

The core technology and service are also available to clients as a managed service through EY TaxChat and the EY Blockchain Analyzer.”
