SINGAPORE 31 January 2023 – Oasys, a gaming-optimised blockchain built by gamers for gamers, is excited to announce its upcoming listing on bitbank, a leading Japanese crypto exchange. This listing will further enhance the liquidity and accessibility of the Oasys network, which is already listed on five centralised exchanges, OKX, Kucoin, Bybit, Gate, and Huobi. The listing on bitbank will provide more opportunities for the investors to trade OAS tokens in the Japanese market and for Japanese gamers to play blockchain games from all around the world.
According to statistics by Newzoo1, Japan is renowned for having the third-largest gaming market in the world after the U.S. and China, and it is also a market with a huge potential for blockchain gaming. The Japanese government has been proactively supporting the development and promotion of blockchain technology, and as the interest and adoption of digital assets continues to grow, it is expected that a greater number of Japanese gamers will start to embrace blockchain games.
Daiki Moriyama, Director, Oasys, said: “We are thrilled to be listed on bitbank and to have the opportunity to expand our reach to the Japanese gaming market, which we see as having a tremendous potential for blockchain gaming. Our goal has always been to provide a seamless and enjoyable gaming experience on the blockchain, and this listing will allow us to do that for even more gamers in Japan.”
Atsushi Kuwabara, Head of Business Development, bitbank, said: “As Oasys is a game-focused blockchain, we expect them to build a foundation that will fully engage the game industry and lead to the expansion of the GameFi ecosystem. We selected Oasys in the hope that it would become known to many as a blockchain project originating from Japan that is taking on global challenges, and that it would inspire game developers to enter the web3 space.”
The OAS token has several utilities within the Oasys ecosystem, including the payment of gas fees for transactions on the platform, participation in Oasys’s decentralised governance process, allowing token holders to be involved in key decisions at Oasys, receipt of staking rewards for participating in the Oasys network, and payment for NFTs and other ecosystem-related products and services.
The Oasys team looks forward to this listing and the opportunities it will bring for the growth and development of the blockchain gaming industry in Japan.
