On May 19, 2021, Polkadot (DOT) was listed on GMO Coin, a major crypto currency exchange in Japan. This is the first time for DOT to be handled in Japan.
This is the third first-listing on a domestic crypto currency exchange in 2021. The first one was ENJ, which was listed on Coincheck on January 26, and the second one was TRX, listed on BITPOINT on March 17.
About DOT: According to CoinMarketCap, DOT is currently the 8th largest currency by market cap. By utilizing blockchain technology, Polkadot aims to create a decentralized Web, Web 3.0, which enables decentralized management of personal information by individual users rather than by a few large corporations (like Google and Facebook). This implementation will reduce the risk of unauthorized access and information leaks, which have become problems in modern society.
