Blockchain gaming platform Enjin has announced a new partnership with Tokyo-based company HashPort Accelerator, marking the start of its expansion into Japan.
The partnership was announced on Enjin’s Medium blog page. The post details how following the firm’s successful expansion into South Korea last year, Japan is the next logical step as it looks to continue building a global reputation.
With more than 67 million gamers and an estimated $19 billion in gaming revenues, Japan is the third-largest games market in the world, according to Newzoo.
The new strategic partnership with HashPort Accelerator signifies Enjin’s official introduction into the Japanese market, with its sights set on attracting the millions of gamers and developers based in Japan.
HashPort will serve as a business liaison and provide Enjin with localisation support, including assistance with getting Enjin Coin listed on cryptocurrency exchanges and business matching with Japanese companies that offer potential synergies.
Both Enjin and HashPort share the same goal of promoting blockchain adoption and the Enjin ecosystem in Japan.
Together they will deploy Enjin’s blockchain products and services among forward-thinking game developers in the thriving Japanese games market.
“The HashPort team has a great track record of introducing and popularising high-potential products to Japanese markets,” says Maxim Blagov, Enjin’s CEO.
“It’s an honour to work with them in bringing Enjin to Japan, where blockchain is proving to be a powerful force for social development. With 67 million players, Japan is home to some of the most innovative and forward-thinking developers in the world.”
With Japan being the third-largest video games market in the world, Enjin’s latest move marks another significant step forward in achieving its goal of global adoption for blockchain gaming.
