Japanese TV Show BitGirls to Air on Tokyo MX TV
The first season of the show features three young women from Japan. Known as the “BitGirls,” Kaori, Chika and Masa hold voting challenges with the television hosts over the course of the first season. Creators say the project brings Japanese mainstream viewers to the world of blockchains and cryptocurrency.
Episodes air on a weekly basis, and participants can use Torekabu-nushi (Trading-share-card holders) to cast votes after each episode. The voting aspect purportedly adds different elements to the broadcast. This includes having the girls wear different costumes and changing standing positions during each show.
Furthermore, BitGirls will air internationally, as the creators plan to broadcast every episode online. The show also provides subtitles in both English and Chinese, in hopes that the subject of cryptocurrency will entice investors. The show’s creators say they will add more girls to the roster in the near future.
