HashKey DX Co., Ltd. (Headquartered in Chiyoda, Tokyo, CEO: Andy Dan, hereinafter “HashKey DX”) has signed an exclusive domestic distribution agreement with CertiK (Headquartered in New York, USA,Co-Founder: Prof. Ronghui Gu and Prof. Zhong Shao, hereafter “CertiK”) to bring blockchain-specific security solutions to the Japanese market.
Blockchain technology has expanded hugely in scope in recent years, with decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and Metaverse projects gaining widespread adoption. The commercial potential of this technology is undeniable, and the Japanese market stands to profit from the application of blockchain to a wide range of new and existing business models.
However, the prevalence of security incidents and the billions of dollars lost annually from blockchain platforms threaten to slow this growth. New mechanisms such as private keys and smart contracts mean that security in blockchain must not be limited to basic cybersecurity or information security techniques.
CertiK is a pioneer in blockchain security, with more than five years of experience in the industry. CertiK has audited nearly 4,000 blockchain projects, with more than 70,000 unique security findings. CertiK-audited projects have gone on to command hundreds of billions of dollars in market capitalization, proving the importance of security to the long-term success of a project.
This partnership between HashKey DX and CertiK will bring CertiK’s comprehensive Security Suite to Japan, helping secure the future of blockchain technology in a country that has been on the cutting-edge for decades.
