J-Pop Group Kasotsuka Shojo uses Pop Music to Educate on Crypto
In April of 2017, Japan recognized Bitcoin as legal tender, and the country is responsible for around half of the global cryptocurrency trade volume. Kasotsuka Shojo is a clear representation of this Japanese obsession with cryptocurrency as the group’s main goal is to educate the public on these digital currencies. The group’s debut single is titled “The Moon and Virtual Currencies and Me,” and features lyrics that warn listeners of potential fraud while encouraging them to maintain online security. The group not only represents cryptocurrency, but also accepts payments for concert tickets, merchandise and other products through Bitcoin and Ethereum.
