Coincheck and Dapper Labs to Bring CryptoKitties and other World-Class NFTs Backed by the New Flow Blockchain to Mainstream Japanese Audiences
Coincheck takes a big step in developing its NFT marketplace by partnering with Dapper Labs, the company building accessible sports, entertainment and consumer experiences on blockchain technology
Coincheck, Inc., one of the leading cryptocurrency exchange platforms in Japan and subsidiary of the financial conglomerate Monex Group, Inc., and Dapper Labs, the company known for creating CryptoKitties and NBA Top Shot, announced a collaboration that will introduce famously-successful and highly-anticipated non-fugingble tokens by Dapper Labs to Coincheck’s over 2.1 million users (As of August 31, 2020) .
Coincheck, in addition to being one of the largest digital currency exchange platforms in Japan, was also one of the earliest, and one of the first exchanges to have undergone and passed the rigorous FSA criteria for licensing. They are bringing this same level of dedication and rigor to the creation of their NFT marketplace, choosing to list NFTs by only the most reputable companies. Coincheck will be working closely with Dapper Labs to introduce many of the great IPs Dapper Labs has secured on Flow, Dapper Labs’ new blockchain, to the Japanese audience, starting with CryptoKitties.
