"Bic Camera is a major consumer electronics retail chain in Japan. Many of its stores are either located in front of a train station or are directly connected to one, making them very easily accessible with lots of foot traffic. Bitflyer is the largest bitcoin exchange by volume.

03 Apr 2017 Blockchain For IoT Extends Beyond Ensuring Security [62135]
IoT Agenda, April 3rd 2017
