DUBLIN, Dec. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Japan NFT Market Intelligence and Future Growth Dynamics Databook – 50+ KPIs on NFT Investments by Key Assets, Currency, Sales Channels – Q2 2022” report has been added to  ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
NFT industry in Japan is expected to grow by 53.0% on an annual basis to reach US$1361.5 million in 2022.

The NFT industry is expected to grow steadily over the forecast period, recording a CAGR of 38.7% during 2022-2028. The NFT Spend Value in the country will increase from US$1361.5 million in 2022 to reach US$8807.2 million by 2028.

NFTs, a new breed of crypto-assets that represent digital items, from images and videos to clothing for avatars, have started gaining popularity over the last four to eight quarters globally. NFTs are data sets in a digital ledger that prove ownership and help the investor gain post sale of these unique digital assets. These NFTs are not exactly new, with the first NFTs being launched in the mid-2010s. On the other hand, the latest figures create a dilemma of whether the bubble will burst or not since weekly NFT sales have plummeted around the globe.

With the hype increasing globally among the business players, artists, and entertainers, Japan also entered the new trend to create a new digital economy. Consequently, consultation providers on crypto assets and blockchains witnessed increasing demand from various artists, publishers, and Japan. For instance, Tokyo-based startup Gracone, earned significant through its consulting service in the country.

Though Japan is still in the early phase of its development, businesses and organizations have partnered with NFT and blockchain platforms to launch innovative products. Notably, the thriving NFT market has attracted Coincheck Inc., a major cryptocurrency exchange operator in Japan, to introduce its NFT marketplace in March 2021.

Importantly, many people in Japan are suspicious of cryptocurrencies and NFTs. Also, many Japanese people are interested in but do not know what to do with them. HEXA, a new NFT platform, came into being in Japan, helping people buy and sell NFTs in Japanese yen without holding any cryptocurrency wallets. Users can also use the platform without paying any transaction or gas fees, while they can set royalty and unlockable content like OpenSea.

Despite the growing interest of Japanese creators and businesses in the market, NFTs still face hurdles in the country. Since the technical know-how of people is essential for installing and managing cryptocurrency wallet services required to operate these NFTs, the market is facing various headwinds to grow. Improving the usability for general users is a challenge in the current NFT market scenario in Japan. Along with this, the legal issue also surrounds NFT ownership in the country.

Amidst such uncertainties, the publisher anticipates that NFTs will be a game-changer in the long run since Japan has successful pop culture, anime, and manga, which has the potential to take the trend forward over the next four to eight quarters in the country.

NFT platforms are bringing Japanese Artists and Creators together on a Single Platform

With the shifting of the world from the physical to digital, various artists and creators are sharing their rich culture with the world in the form of NFTs. Therefore, NFT platforms are taking the initiative to bring these artists and creators on a single platform to attract more customers over the long run in Japan.
In April 2022, a new NFT marketplace, Primes, was developed by Angela Global Co. Ltd. to bring together Japanese content in a single platform and convert it to NFTs to protect the work of Japanese creators. Since Japan has a very rich culture, this new platform chose the Japanese content to launch as NFTs in the Primes marketplace.
Based out of Taiwan, this platform is not restricted to the Japanese marketplace but also to the United States, Oceania, Asia, and the Middle East. Primes are a new economic zone allowing users worldwide to discover collect and innovative NFTs, thus generating revenue.
Japanese entertainment conglomerate and video game companies are foraying into the NFT space vying for the growing market
Post the success of the first Ethereum NFT in Japan, and the industry saw a substantial rise during the start of 2021; the boom was carried well, with artists and celebrities purchasing NFTs of their own. As a result, various businesses and organizations plunged into the high-growth market to earn profit over the longer run.
In September 2021, Japanese entertainment conglomerate and video game company Square Enix announced to enter the NFT space with NFT-centered projects, including blockchain-based video games and collectibles.
Square Enix launched NFT digital trading cards in Japan, which are based on the anime and video game franchise “Shi-San-Sei Million Arthur” along with developer Double Jump. Tokyo/MCH+. This was the water testing strategy of the company, which was successful as all the cards were sold.

Maersk and IBM last month shut down their global platform that was supposed to bring blockchain to the shipping industry. Other big bets are moving slowly.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. Energy Department said on Friday it will begin buying back oil for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, or SPR, the first purchase since this year's record 180 million barrel release from the stockpile. The department will buy up to 3 million barrels for delivery in February, a senior official told reporters. President Joe Biden announced the 180 million sale in late March to combat surging gasoline prices that boosted inflation after the February invasion of Ukraine by Russia, the world's largest exporter of fossil fuels.
Oil stocks suffered a third straight day of falling share prices on Friday, with oil majors ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) and Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) and pipeline operator Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD) all dropping sharply in early-morning trading. As of 10:50 a.m. EST, Exxon stock remains down 1.6%, Chevron has lost 1.8%, and Enterprise Products stock is down 2.4%. Tumbling oil prices were the cause.
The 92-year-old Warren Buffett and his company Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A)(NYSE: BRK.B) have been beating the market for decades, standing strong even through multiple recessions. Buffett typically takes a long-term investing approach, which means the Oracle of Omaha is seeing a lot of opportunity. Here are two stocks Buffett bought boatloads of this year.
The Zacks Major Regional Banks will benefit from the Fed's aggressive interest rate hikes and decent loan demand. Business restructuring and digitization also offer support. On these favorable factors, industry players like JPM, BAC & C are worth a look.
As Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett has famously said, it often pays to be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy — and there's certainly no shortage of fear shaping today's stock market backdrop. Macroeconomic conditions have generally led to brutal trading for tech stocks this year, and the growth-heavy Nasdaq Composite index is currently down 28% across 2022's trading. Economic uncertainty suggests that the market could continue to be turbulent in the near term, but investors also have opportunities to buy shares in category-leading companies at prices that set the stage for attractive long-term returns.
The Zacks Mining – Gold industry's near-term prospects are bright as gold prices are expected to gain. One can watch stocks like FNV, AEM, AU and GAU, backed by their growth prospects.

Cisco (CSCO) reported earnings 30 days ago. What's next for the stock? We take a look at earnings estimates for some clues.
The average price for Russia's Urals oil blend was $57.49 per barrel between Nov. 15 and Dec. 14, Russia's Finance Ministry said late on Thursday, below the Western cap of $60. That means Western shippers and insurers in countries that have imposed sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine conflict would still be able to provide services to cover shipments of Russian crude without fear of being sanctioned. The drop from the average Urals price of $71.10 in the previous month was not because the country observed the price cap – which Moscow has said is illegal and threatened to cut oil output in response – but due to a general downward trend in global oil prices over the period.
The is the Materials Select Sector SPDR Fund. In this long-term weekly bar chart of the XLB, below, we can see a long and powerful uptrend going back to 2002. A strong weekly On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line is the most compelling reason to look for still higher prices in the future.
Tesla (TSLA) has been a monster stock over much of its history, especially from its stratospheric run from mid-2019 to late 2021. But in 2022, Tesla stock has been a big loser, on track to plunge 57% as of Dec. 16. That would easily surpass 2016's 11% fall, the only other annual decline since Tesla stock came public in 2010….
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) -A Canadian energy regulator said on Friday that it has laid charges against Suncor Energy Inc after a worker was injured in 2019 on the Terra Nova floating oil production storage and offloading vessel.
