He has long and unique experience in product management using cutting edge Bitcoin-related technologies.

He has developed the world’s first mobile token wallet with decentralized exchange (DEX) on the Bitcoin blockchain and spearheaded innovative use cases of tokenized game assets and digital collectibles from 2014 through 2017. The field is generally known as NFTs now and early token projects he was involved in are recognized as “historical NFTs” by serious collectors.

He is also a well-known writer and content creator and is a host of the longest-running and most trusted Bitcoin YouTube channel in Japan, educating and influencing the key industry players. 

His experience and contributions go beyond the Japanese market. He has worked with top projects globally for marketing and business strategies as well as product development.

I believe Bitcoin will make a significant impact on business, economics and wider society for long years to come. Not only does it provides a frontier for new business opportunities, but also it will become an important tool to expand personal freedom and resist potential oppression or abuse from the authority and corporations. All of my personal and professional activities are geared toward achieving this vision for Bitcoin.
