BitGo Hiring Sales Director For Expansion Into Tokyo

BitGo, a “digital asset trust company and security company” in Palo Alto California, wants to expand its Japanese offering. This news comes to us via The Block, who learned via a source close to the matter.

As you may know, the Bitcoin wallets service made its first expansion to Japan a year ago. And, the source spoke directly to The Block said that the company is working to bring on a sales director for its Tokyo branch, and, according to a job posting, BitGo will have the head sell its “digital wallet and offline vault solutions.”

As a Sales Executive, one is expected to “build fundamental account plans, operational strategy and drive activity in potential clients” alongside “be involved in all aspects of account management including: senior level relationship management, product demonstrations, contract negotiation, sales closing, product setup, and delivery,” among other things.

According to the publication, BitGo refused to speak on the size of its sales team. That said, they did a LinkedIn search and found that BitGo had a sales account manager based in Japan since July of last year.

This news supports Japan’s desired move into cryptocurrencies and blockchain, especially when you point out that the country’s blockchain sandbox introduced in June 2018 will help push new business-related projects on top of other things. Japan is also looking into a few other pieces of emerging technology, like IoT, A.I., and more.
