CoinPoker Sponsors Japan Poker Cup with Online Qualifiers for Day 1
CoinPoker has united with the Japanese Poker Association (JPA) for this year’s Japan Poker Cup. The news comes hot on the heels of their support for the Asian Poker Tour and is the result of the team’s continued efforts to make their mark in the thriving Asian poker scene.
CoinPoker representative Adrian Tamas and Kinichi Nakata, president of the Japan Poker Association, discussed the potential for collaboration earlier this year. In light of the regional interest in blockchain technology, as well as the association’s goal of promoting poker across the nation, Nakata expressed that a partnership was inevitable.
"I believe in the CoinPoker project, and I believe in a successful partnership between CoinPoker and the Japan Poker Association". Kinichi Nakata , President of Japan Poker Association stated.
CoinPoker is a cryptocurrency based poker room that utilizes CHP tokens to power all bets and transactions. It is the product of a universal demand for a poker platform that encourages fair play and uses blockchain solutions for an enhanced online poker experience.
In an attempt to assist the Japanese Poker Association with their vision for making poker accessible to all residents of Japan, particularly those in isolated rural regions, online qualifiers for Day 1 of the event will be hosted on CoinPoker.
“CoinPoker is looking forward to introducing CoinPoker to even more Japanese players. We expect a lot of interest in how we applied blockchain technology and cryptocurrency to online poker, and are excited to continue expanding throughout Japan and Asia.” said Adrian Tamas, CoinPoker Representative in Japan.
Between April and August 2018, players can win a seat to the first stage of the Japan Poker Cup by playing in a series of online satellites.
The details of this arrangement will be announced soon, and while this sponsorship is designed to promote poker in Japan all players interested in participating in the event are welcome to join.
