Japan Has Released Crypto Courses for Seniors
In Japan, an impressive number of seniors are interested in making investments in the crypto sector.
As a result, the Japanese Cryptocurrency Support Center has released a special course for them to inform about the steps they should follow in order to invest in cryptocurrencies.
The course is dedicated to middle-aged and seniors and was launched by Japan’s Cryptocurrency Support Center. This is considered to be the “Japan’s first virtual currency investment course for seniors,” according to media.
The center based in Tokyo aims to share accurate information about virtual currencies and provide investors with the confidence and security needed to make investments. The organization is supporting the “sound development of the virtual currency industry“.
“In the past, investment of stocks and FX was the mainstream. However, since 2017 virtual currencies became a topic in the news, and seniors who start investing [in] virtual currencies are increasing…we hold virtual currency seminars…and some participants in their 80s have participated,” describes the center.
One of the reasons leading to the involvement of the elderly in crypto investments is “for the future relief of family and grandchildren to eliminate anxiety about old age,” explained the center.
The course consists of two parts
The course provided by the Japanese Cryptocurrency Support Center consists of two parts: “Basic operation and maintenance of virtual currency” and “Investment know-how of virtual currency and measures against taxation“. Thus, the course will be based on the following topics: how to open a crypto account, how to acquire crypto assets using the national currency, and how to store cryptocurrencies. Also, the course will refer to two-step authentication and the method to keep safe your private key.
“For beginners who do not know how to buy virtual currency, we will instruct [them] carefully from the beginning, including how to use a personal computer,” the center explained, adding that “Even if you are inexperienced, even if you are not good at personal computers, you can start investing in virtual currency during the course period!”
Regarding the second part of the course, the elderly will learn about the evolution of cryptocurrencies using Tradingview. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to learn investment strategies and tax measures.
