Also SACA expands its network in Asia One month ago we signed a MOU with the Korean based Jeju Blockchain Smart City Composition Association (JBCSCCA, www.jejublockchain.org). Today, we are very exited to announce a partnership with Tokyo FinTech (https://tokyofintech.com/ ) to foster our ecosystem in the Asian region. We consider Japan as an important market in the fintech space. Hence, we signed another MOU for immediate cooperation between our organisations. Kudos to Norbert Gehrke for pro-actively initiating this great opportunity. Thank you!
