Meet the "Virtual Currency Girls" a POP CryptoGroup from Japan

The world has a new pop group. Each of the girls represents a cryptocurrecny.

From left to right, meet XEM, BCH, MONA, BTC, ADA, ETH, NEO, and XRP. Japan’s new all-girl pop group Kasotsuka Shojo, each of whose eight members represents a different cryptocurrency.

They held their first cryptopop concert in Tokyo last Friday.

The group, whose name translates to Virtual Currency Girls, was recently launched by Japanese entertainment company Cinderella Academy, which also manages several other popular groups, to educate the public about the crypto world, in song. Each girl in the group represents a different currency such as bitcoin, ethereum or ripple, which can be identified from their fuzzy masks. It isn’t clear how French maid outfits symbolize cryptocurrency or blockchain technology—but they’re popular costumes in Japan’s anime and cosplay circles.

The group’s first song, “The Moon and Virtual Currencies and Me,” appears to take its inspiration from the warnings issued by various regulators in recent weeks—it’s a lecture on online security and watching out for fraudulent crypto businesses. Listen for yourself:

“We want to promote the idea through entertainment that virtual currencies are not just a tool for speculation but are a wonderful technology that will shape the future,” said the group’s leader Rara Naruse, 18, in an online statement. Naruse symbolizes bitcoin cash.

Keep saying to yourself. This is not yet a mania. It's all very normal.

"To the moon Alice," I mean MONA, I mean grandma.

Just "Know" that Cyber Currency can't crash, stock and bond markets can't crash and self driving cars can't crash. Physics has been repealed.

AWC, you forgot to include the other things that can't crash, like govt bonds, euro, yen, and the dollar. Luckily, since none of these will crash, all the wealth that's parked in them doesn't need to look for another parking spot.

"Keep saying to yourself. This is not yet a mania. It's all very normal." I read the other day that a substantial %age of people were borrowing money to buy crypto currencies. Substantial numbers of people borrowing is normal in a mania. Global debt is now over 230 trillion.

Wonder when the BOJ will have the "yen" to monetize the cryptocurrency asset class
