Gox and in the country, which today has become one of the global centres of the cryptocurrency industry. There he will meet some bright and slightly quirky characters: the participants of the female j-pop group Girls Virtual Currency, 21-year-old student who most of the time mainit ether, the Professor who created the cryptocurrency for use exclusively in the territory of the University.
