Our $JPYC now on Astar Network

JPYC inc (Chiyoda-Ward, Tokyo, CEO: Noritaka Okabe), which issues Japanese Yen-pegged stablecoin $JPYC, has announced that $JPYC is now compatible with Astar Network.

At the same time, we’ll start to distribute $ASTR token, which is needed to use Astar Network, to the first 10,000 customers who purchased $JPYC on Astar via JPYC Apps. This will allow you to easily join to Astar ecosystem and experience the very new $JPYC.

Why we decided to be on Astar Network

$JPYC is currently available on Ethereum, Polygon, Shiden Network, Gnosis and Avalanche.

However, to improve the convenience as the payment method of the new era, we have to expand the compatible network.

Therefore, by enabling $JPYC issuance and circulation on Astar Network ecosystem, we think we can enhance its value as the payment method and the convenience itself.

Details of this give-away campaign

To celebrate the launch of $JPYC on Astar Network, we are going to give away $ASTR tokens, which are required to use the Astar Network.

$ASTR tokens will be distributed in the amount of “1 ASTR*10,000 = 10,000 ASTRs”.

The eligible persons are the first 10,000 arrivals.

Campaign Outline

  • Duration: from 18th April till the last 10,000th person appears
  • Distribution Amount: 1 $ASTR at a time
    →you all can get $ASTR only once per day
  • URL to buy $JPYC on Astar: https://app.jpyc.jp/
