ICBC Standard Tokyo Branch President: Virtual currency can be said to be a financial asset, but not the currency remains to be discussed

ICBC Standard Tokyo Branch President Izui Shui said in an interview that there is no problem in calling virtual currency a financial asset, but whether it is still a currency remains to be discussed. Gold is also not a currency because it is currently impossible to trade with gold. Whether it can be called currency, it actually depends on its ability to be widely used for settlement.
