Fintech company Tech Bureau, located in Osaka, Japan, announced that its subsidiary, bitcoin exchange Zaif, has partnered with SatoshiLabs to help distribute the Trezor Wallet across the Japanese region.
Tech Bureau & SatoshiLabs Bringing Trezor to Japan
Since Spring 2016, Japanese Bitcoin enthusiasm has significantly increased, according to Tech Bureau. Individuals and organizations located in the region can keep their bitcoin safe using Trezor’s valuable cold storage options, with help from Zaif’s distribution of the product.
Tech Bureau and its child company, the Zaif exchange, are firm believers in blockchain and Bitcoin-related projects and devices. They believe Trezor and its parent company SatoshiLabs have an excellent reputation within this growing industry.
Takao Asayama, a Tech Bureau representative, stated in the announcement:
As a regular agency, that can contribute to the spreading of Trezor in Japan is an honor for us. Trezor is a hardware wallet, which is now used in more than 100 countries around the world . In Japan, we believe that its products will be loved by Bitcoin users as a standard device. With the price of Bitcoin skyrocketing, it will now sleep in peace with one Trezor.
Tech Bureau has recently gained attention in media headlines for securing over $6 million USD in Series A funding, which will help Zaif and its other blockchain-based services move forward.
Tech Bureau’s other child-company, Mijin, demonstrated the first blockchain microfinance service in Myanmar with Infoteria and BC Finance.
Now with the company’s partnership with SatoshiLabs through Zaif, Tech Bureau will retain marketing efforts with the Trezor product and aim to make the hardware wallet a standard in Japan.
CEO of SatoshiLabs Alena Vranova looks forward to the partnership, stating:
In recent years, Trezor has skyrocketed in Japan. By this alliance with Japan we can provide a more rapid delivery of goods and higher quality support for the device. With the support of Asayama and Tech bureau, Trezor can also find its way into major markets, such as Amazon Japan and the Rakuten market.
The Trezor sale campaign with Tech Bureau will offer users a yen discount off the Trezor normal listing price. Both firms believe the alliance will spread better security standards across the Asian region with Trezor’s reliable devices and services. Tech Bureau’s Takao Asayama thinks Japan holds great opportunity for blockchain and cryptocurrency solutions and wants his country to be in the thick of innovation.
