Oasys, a blockchain designed specifically for gaming and created by gamers for gamers, is thrilled to announce its impending listing on bitbank, a major Japanese cryptocurrency exchange. The Oasys network will now be more accessible and liquid, as it is already listed on five centralised exchanges: OKX, Kucoin, Bybit, Gate, and Huobi. With the bitbank listing, investors will have more options to trade OAS tokens in the Japanese market, while Japanese gamers will have more opportunities to play blockchain games from across the world.
Japan is known for having the third-largest gaming market in the world behind the United States and China, according to data from Newzoo1, and it is a market with enormous potential for blockchain gaming. As the interest and adoption of digital assets continue to rise, it is anticipated that more Japanese gamers will begin to embrace blockchain games. The Japanese government has been aggressively promoting and developing blockchain technology.
Oasys Director Daiki Moriyama said: “We are overjoyed to have the chance to enter the Japanese gaming market, which we believe has enormous potential for blockchain gaming, and to be listed on Bitbank. With this listing, we will be able to serve even more Japanese gamers who want a seamless and engaging gaming experience on the blockchain.”
Bitbank’s Head of Business Development, Atsushi Kuwabara, stated: “We anticipate Oasys, a blockchain that focuses on games, to establish a foundation that will fully involve the games industry and result in the growth of the GameFi ecosystem. We chose Oasys in the hopes that it would spread awareness as a blockchain initiative with Japanese roots that is tackling global issues and that it would encourage game creators to enter the web3 market.”
In the Oasys ecosystem, the OAS token can be used for a variety of purposes, such as paying gas fees for platform transactions, participating in Oasys’s decentralised governance process, which enables token holders to influence important decisions at Oasys, receiving staking rewards for joining the Oasys network, and paying for NFTs and other ecosystem-related goods and services.
The Oasys team is eagerly anticipating this listing and the possibilities it will present for the expansion and development of the blockchain gaming sector in Japan.
