CNET recently reported that Japan doesn’t consider bitcoin a currency, mostly because it isn’t being regulated “by any official body.” But there may be a chance the Japanese government will consider bitcoin a currency in the near future, CNET said.
“The government didn't rule out the idea of creating regulatory framework for virtual currencies, but did say if this were to be done, it'd have to be in conjunction with other countries,” CNET reported.
