It is true that we have been considering the acquisition of the cryptocurrency firm mentioned in the report today but have not made any decision yet.
In the above mentioned statement Money Group claimed that Nikkei website news report mentioning their "entry into cryptocurrency business" was not based on Money Group announcement. The company has only been studying and experimenting on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency as its applied technology. As part of its efforts, Money Group set up the Monex Cryptocurrency Lab in January this year, and has also been considering the secure and socially responsible cryptocurrency business, but has "not made any decision yet" regarding Coincheck.
