He believes that Japan has taken the lead in establishing a regulatory framework for crypto assets in various countries around the world, and in particular has detailed legal definitions of the two sections of crypto asset and electronic record transfer rights and crypto asset exchanges. The regulator is mainly composed of three major agencies: the Financial Services Agency, the Japan Digital Asset Exchange Industry Association JVCEA, and the National Taxation Bureau. Among them, the Japanese Virtual Currency Exchange Association JVCEA is the only semi-official industry association recognized by the Financial Services Agency, which is responsible for formulating independent supervision regulations and inspection projects. The National Tax Agency of Japan classified the proceeds from crypto asset transactions into the “other income” column, which is the first state-level legal regulation on crypto asset-related taxes.
