One of the most famous destinations is Fukui where only a quarter of million dwellers live (Japan has 127 million inhabitants). The miners often use abandoned factories and warehouses in the region. The digital assets may be a great opportunity for a development of these parts of Japan. This situation can show an impact which cryptocurrencies may have on the economy.
