Meet the First Ever Cryptocurrency Pop Group

Japan has an all-girl pop group where each member represents a different cryptocurrency.

Love Bitcoin? This band is for you. There is a new Japanese pop group, Kasotsuka Shojo (or Virtual Currency Girls in English), and each of the eight members represents a different cryptocurrency. They’re holding the first cryptopop concert in Tokyo this Friday. The group was launched by Japanese entertainment company Cinderella Academy, which also manages several other popular groups. The goal of the group is to educate people about cryptocurrency through music. Each girl in the group represents a different type of cryptocurrency, like bitcoin, ethereum or ripple, and they can be identified by their fuzzy masks.

“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, according to Quartz. She represents bitcoin cash. Bitcoin has been recognized as a legal form of currency in Japan.
