“Our assets under custody increased significantly due to the rise in the price of crypto assets like Bitcoin late last year. At the same time, the share of physical trading volume in Japan has increased, and the share of crypto assets (altcoin) other than Bitcoin is 55%. This is the highest percentage in the industry. “
