Data show: Japanese cryptocurrency exchanges increased the number of new accounts opened in the past two months by 200%

In the past two months, the number of new accounts opened on the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange has increased by 200%. Data from Bitpoint, DMM Bitcoin and Coincheck show that entry-level investors' interest in Bitcoin has increased significantly since the end of March. Take Bitpoint as an example. The number of daily accounts opened in May is three times that of March, which is twice that of April. Coincheck's public relations department said that the local peak appeared on May 14, and the number of online accounts on that day was seven times the average of March. These figures correspond to bitcoin prices in March between $3,750 and $4,150, while on May 14 the price of bitcoin against the dollar was around $8,250.
