“You can no longer ignore virtual currencies as assets -- they're too big to look past, and have begun to affect existing financial markets. Our acquisition of Coincheck is an essential piece of our mission to redefine what finance means.”From what we are seeing in this interview, it seems pretty clear where Monex want to take Coincheck. They do have their priorities straight, it looks as if security is of paramount importance to the team. Moreover, it looks as if Monex are in this for the long haul and that this is not just an ‘off the cuff’ purchased designed for experimental reasons. Matsumoto looks to believe that the future lies within the blockchain, cryptocurrency is a key part of this and Monex want to be at the forefront of the revolution. They have a mission to ‘redefine what finance means’ a noble cause indeed, and one which we wish them the best of luck with. Hopefully, Monex have given Coincheck an essential lifeline here.
