Blockfanz is a professional marketing community for blockchain projects based mainly in South Korea and Japan.
We aim to gather fans from all over Asia for your blockchain project.
Year Founded: 2018
How did the idea for the business originate?
Japan has the highest exchange volume of cryptocurrencies in the world, and South Korea has the third highest. From our headquarters in Tokyo, Japan and Seoul, South Korea, we provide swift and accurate marketing support and consulting service to foreign blockchain projects seeking to expand into the Asian market.
We also hold what we call WBT (World Blockchain Tour) on a regular basis, which is a conference on blockchain. The last one was a large-scale conference in Taipei, Taiwan, which we held back in September 2018, and the next one will be in Tokyo in the spring of 2019.
Some marketing support services act in an overbearing manner in their interaction with their clients, but we prioritize communication with our valued clients, submitting biweekly reports and providing planning service tailored to their needs.
Do you have customers yet? If not, how far into your business lifecycle are you?
Yes, we already have clients.
We are seeing more and more projects that we would like to do marketing of in Japan and South Korea.
How have you funded your growth to date?
Currently, we are not planning to raise funds.
What would a successful year ahead look like for you?
This year proved to be a hard one for the cryptocurrency industry, but I am satisfied with the fact that we were able to help our clients successfully secure funds in such a market environment.
From next year, we will explore new areas, such as human resources business in the field of blockchain.
Outside of your own business, which start up do you admire the most and why?
I would like to name OmiseGO as a startup that should be praised. Their CEO, Mr. Hasegawa, is Japanese, but they are a payment service provider targeting Southeast Asia.
Their aim is to expand their business in Southeast Asia, where many people do not have bank accounts. They secure funds from major players in Japan, and their development is going smoothly, and in addition, their CEO and I are both Japanese, so I expect them to succeed.
