What's great about JBC


Over 150 expert corporations will gather in Yokohama.

Leading companies and organizations responsible for the future of blockchain technology from Japan and abroad will gather and exchange information, aiming to spread awareness of blockchain and expand the areas where blockchain is applied.


The smartest place to share the latest domestic and international information

In collaboration with global blockchain companies and organizations, we will do more than deliver information both domestically and internationally. We are providing a place for people to exchange information and show the experience and technology they have developed.


A great opportunity to learn about future ICO regulations

The ICO regulations are now strict in Japan, and it is caused by the fact that many ICOs are not yet trusted and their image has been muddled by many scammers. The ICOs will be more properly regulated in the future, and participating in JBC and getting genuine information will help you navigate through obstacles to obtain ideas for strategies and answers to how you will achieve your goals.


Learn about the facts regarding the future of crypto.

Recently there has been a lot of negative press regarding the vulnerability of exchanges, such as the Coincheck NEM leaks and hacking incidents, which has led to stricter government regulations. Many exchanges have closed down in China and South Korea, but there are truths that are not widely understood. You can learn the facts regarding the closure of these exchanges at JBC.


Learn about the latest developments in the crypto market from famous guests

At this conference, you will have a chance to listen to many founders of blockchain companies and blockchain specialists in person. This allows you to get first-hand insights on developments in the market from the best sources.


See the future of technology

Services which incorporate AI and VR are being released in Japan, and blockchain technology will surely be introduced to all facets of society, including medicine, education, and the workforce, in the near future. It is not an exaggeration to say you can see the future at this JBC.
