In an interview with CNSNews.com on Friday, March 1, 2019, at the American Conservative Union’s Conservative Political Action Conference 2019 (CPAC) , Executive Director of The Japanese Conservative Union (“JCU”) and CEO & Co-Founder of Liberty Ecosystem PTE.LTD. Yasu Kikuta, explained that the Asia Pacific Conservative Union and JCU started the “Liberty Project” – a project that will leverage blockchain technology through cryptocurrency – as a way to “deal with China.”

“The main reason why we started Liberty, how to deal with China,” stated Yasu Kikuta. “This is the main issue. And then we are starting [indiscernible] throughout the home; we are starting the financing throughout the home; we are starting voting throughout the home, to deal with China.”

According to a Liberty Ecosystem press release, Chairman of the Asia Pacific Conservative Union (“APCU”) Jikido Aeba and Yasu Kikuta announced the launch of the Liberty Ecosystem on February 28, 2019. The press release states that the Liberty Ecosystem is “a decentralized federation of local advocacy and economic development organizations seeking to combat the rise of authoritarianism in the Asia-Pacific region and around the world. The project will leverage blockchain technology through a forthcoming cryptocurrency to support economic development projects and a greater voice in furthering democracy.”

The press release further notes the authoritarian governments of China and Russia specifically, Chairman Jikido Aeba saying, “We are very focused on counterbalancing threats to liberty in two areas: governments who are limiting individual and group rights within their countries, and authoritarian governments such as China and Russia who are expanding their governance models to other countries.”

When asked by CNSNews.com “what the Japanese Conservative Union is trying to do” Liberty Ecosystem CEO & Co-Founder Yasu Kikuta stated, “The Japanese Conservative Union is established, was established in 2015. We got [sic] a good alliance with [the] ACU [American Conservative Union], and between ACU and JCU, we established the Asia Pacific Conservative Union.

“And then, in order for us to get conservative activities, we just started [the] Liberty Project.”

Responding to CNSNews.com’s question concerning how the JCU intends to spread conservatism in the Asia-Pacific region, Yasu Kikuta stated,

“The main reason why we started Liberty, how to deal with China. This is the main issue. And then we are starting [indiscernible] throughout the home; we are starting the financing throughout the home; we are starting voting throughout the home to deal with China with our partners all over the world. This is the main mission of us.”

“The Liberty Ecosystem,” according to the Liberty Project press release, “provides organizations in the federation with a shared common financial and communications infrastructure that enables them to rapidly mobilize and capitalize on a global network of supporters.”
