Eco-friendly blockchain Oasys has announced its upcoming listing on the Japanese crypto exchange Bitbank.
The listing will provide opportunities for Japanese gamers to play blockchain games worldwide.
Alongside this, investors will be granted the chance to trade OAS tokens on the Japanese market.
The company hopes that listing on Bitbank will boost the liquidity and accessibility of the Oasys network; one that is already listed on five centralized exchanges: Bybit, Gate, Huobi, Kucoin and OKX.
Renowned for holding the third most populous gaming market globally – after the US and China – Japan reportedly holds a large potential for blockchain gaming, according to games market statistics from Newzoo.
The Japanese government has shown a growing interest in the adoption of digital assets and has been in favour of supporting the development and integration of blockchain technology for some time.
It is expected that the new listing will bring further opportunities for the growth and development of blockchain gaming in the East Asian country.
Oasys director Daiki Moriyama 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.”
Bitbank head of business development Atsushi Kuwabara commented: “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.”
