Japan's Metaplanet Accepts Bitcoin as a Reserve Asset Amid Yen Declining Environment

In an announcement on Monday, the company cited Japan's ongoing economic woes, including high government debt levels, prolonged periods of negative real interest rates and the resulting weakness of the Yen, as the primary motivation for Bitcoin adoption.

Japan, which has the highest government debt/GDP ratio among developed countries at 254.6%, is currently grappling with significant economic challenges, as reported by the International Monetary Fund.

Despite the government's efforts to address economic woes, including its decision to raise interest rates in March, the Yen has fallen to its lowest level in 34 years, according to Reuters.

Explaining its rationale, Metaplanet emphasized Bitcoin's role as a “non-sovereign store of value” that is resilient to fiat currencies.

The company emphasized Bitcoin's distinct monetary policy, which is immutable and finite, with its maximum supply capped at 21 million coins, unlike traditional fiat currencies and other cryptocurrencies subject to central control.

“Bitcoin's monetary policy is rigidly set in stone until 2140, distinguishing it from both monetary metals and rival crypto projects operated at the whims of centralized developer teams,” Metaplanet said.

Additionally, the company has taken a strategic approach to asset management, revealing its intention to leverage the “full spectrum” of capital markets instruments to strengthen its Bitcoin reserves.

According to data from, as of May 10, Metaplanet reportedly held 117.7 BTC, which is equivalent to approximately $7.2 million.
