Bitcoin-themed Manga Series Debuts in Japan


The cryptocurrency-manga bond is growing stronger. While manga-flavored token monacoin (MONA) was arguably the first major crypto-manga crossover, a new series of bitcoin (BTC)-themed comics is now the talk of the town in Japan.

The new title is named Genesis Code, and is being serialized in manga magazine Young Animal, published by the Tokyo-based manga powerhouse Hakusensha.

The front cover of the first edition, published on April 28, features the series’ hero holding a token emblazoned with the bitcoin logo, and the publisher has released a promotional video.
