Ripple (XRP) Popularity In Japan
So far, it was not clearly known why XRP has a strong community base in Japan. The altcoin‘s popularity in the country is on similar levels with that of Bitcoin, trumping Ethereum, which is only third most popular cryptocurrency in Japan. According to a study on Non-Performing Assets Cases and Cryptocurrency in Japan, there are concrete reasons behind the popularity of XRP. The cryptocurrency’s association with Japanese VC firm SBI Holdings is the primary reason behind Ripple’s success in Japan.
Until recently, Yoshitaka Kitao, the CEO of SBI Holdings, was part of Ripple’s board of directors. SBI’s links with Ripple date back to 2017, which was when XRP became popular in Japan. In fact, SBI’s shareholder benefit in XRP made news in January 2023. The company had offered its shareholders an incentive option of receiving benefits in XRP.
