Moving forward, Japanese players will be able to utilise the tool and see improvements of the platform by visiting the native website. Japan is of particular importance to many crypto operators.
The country’s national currency, the JPY, is the second most traded national currency against the bitcoin right, after the US dollar. Japan has also been an early blockchain and crypto adopter, putting it in a unique position to benefit from the technology, while also operating a grey market that hosts world-leading crypto casinos.
QuantaPay, Quanta’s ‘transparent payment gateway’ is the brand’s proprietary wallet which can host BTC, ETH, QNTX and any ERC-20 token. Users can also earn in QNTX for using the wallet, while it’s been built with ease-of-use front and centre.
BitStarz and FunFair both extend their crypto gaming product to Japan, safe in the knowledge that the country’s affluence and crypto-savviness is well-suited. Japan is also preparing to open an integrated land-based resort, the first of which will arrive in 2024/2025.
There is some fear that this timeline may now be scuppered completely because of the ongoing global pandemic that has suspended global traffic and halted various non-essential construction works.
In the meantime, however, players will be happy to know that BitStarz and FunFair-powered casinos, including CasinoFair, are all available to play from Japan and in Japanese. Interest from these leading brands indicates that Japan may soon host more casinos.
