It is pretty interesting that you were talking about Japan's lost generation. After the bubble burst and a lot of these Japanese companies stopped hiring and this put tremendous pressure on the new graduates as they struggled to find jobs.
Being unsuccessful and the pressure of living in their parents homes and constantly being called a failure for not being able to get a job, their own house and be on their own at their age has affected their mental stability and often a lot turn in recluses, the modern day hermits who use the internet as the only link to the outside world.
Crypto in a way has helped a lot of these individuals and I remember that it was crypto based activities that helped me overcome a lot of my social anxieties before and got me outside.
There is hope yet.
