Interview with Casino Fair: Expanding to Japan

Casino Fair, the Ethereum-based online casino, has launched a Japanese version of their as part of their effort to expand into the technology-focused country.

The question is, with so many Bitcoin gambling markets now experiencing major growth, why choose Japan?

Japan is one of the few regulated cryptocurrency markets and has some of the most experienced blockchain players globally. It also offers a massive population of tech-savvy, young, upwardly mobile people that make for a perfect audience for blockchain-based online gambling experiences.

CPO, Fred KesslerFunFair Technologies Europe Ltd, the company that powers Casino Fair, said: “We had been advised by our partners for a while that Japan is a great market due to its regulatory framework around cryptocurrency. The Japanese authorities have been advocates of how cryptocurrency and blockchain technology will encourage growth. In fact, JPY is the second largest traded currency against Bitcoin after USD and this makes it an excellent choice for our first platform localization.

We’re really looking forward to the increased engagement with this new addition to FunFairs’ product proposition, we continue to push our product and technology forward with our aim to bring blockchain technology to the masses and to the forefront of gaming entertainment”

In April, The Bitcoin Strip sat down with the Casino Fair team to find out a little bit more about the world’s fastest growing blockchain casino.

Why did the team decide to build the FunFair software on Ethereum? 

Ethereum was, and remains, the most compelling smart contract-based blockchain with the most developers, best developer tools and best end-user tools, so it was an obvious choice for us.

Do you have plans to build on any other EVM-compatible chains like TRON? 

Not currently, though we’re always keeping abreast of developments in the blockchain space.

Your website mentions Guaranteed Fairness, how can players validate fairness for themselves?

Our platform, thanks to the Ethereum blockchain, has fairness built into its infrastructure. Customers are playing a Guaranteed Fair range of games validated by smart contracts that allow players and the house to be put on an equal footing.

Of course, we allow players to interact with every hand, every roll of the dice and every game session to see this for themselves. This is why in their FunFair account they can identify each game on the blockchain itself to check that each game is Guaranteed Fair.

Do you have any plans to introduce other cryptocurrencies, in particular any stablecoins?

We have completed a lot of user testing to understand what players want from our platform. Our initial feedback is that while many currencies are interesting, the biggest request we have had across the board is to make it easier to get FUN. And make it simpler to play the games with that currency.

As such we are very shortly removing the requirement of ETH to pay gas fees and are including fiat currency onramps via our new partnership MoonPay.

Conclusion

The future looks bright for Casino Fair with its massive leap across the world to be fully inclusive of the Japanese market. We have no doubt that from the Land of the Rising Sun, the sky is the limit and we look forward to hearing of further expansion and developments of what can only be described as one of the most progressive brands in online casino today.
