My New Book: Digital Identity (in Japanese)

It is quite surprising that already almost two months are passing since the publication of my new book, “Digital Identity”. Unfortunately, it is in Japanese. If there are demands and proposals from publishers in English speaking countries, my publisher, Nikkei BP, may consider the translation but for the time being, it is only available in Japanese so please recommend it to them if you know any. (Note: My previous book “Blockchain Gaps” was translated into several languages including English, which was published from Springer this April.)

The book is available both in print and in Kindle.

It not only discusses theories behind Digital Identity but also talks about privacy extensively.
