Investment to Bolster In-House Engineering Team and Expand Global Footprint

CHEYENNE, Wyo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tacen, a legal-first crypto software company, has announced its acquisition of Japanese software company, Kawazu Sakura Software. Kawazu Sakura Software is composed of skilled software developers aiming to create high-quality mobile and web applications through the utilization of emerging technologies. The acquisition has more than doubled Tacen’s engineering team and will accelerate the development of Tacen’s novel hybrid-decentralized exchange (hDEX) solution.

As a member of the Blockchain Association, Tacen believes in moving forward in a legal-first and compliant way.

Working as part of the larger Tacen network gives our team the ability to provide value to the world of blockchain by increasing accessibility through innovative UI/UX design.”

Since its founding in late 2018, Kawazu Sakura Software has already developed apps for multiple clients including Blast, Protonchain, Dentsu and Mapify. Using the latest technologies to hit the market, ranging from mobile frameworks and content management systems to novel coding languages and Web3, Kawazu Sakura Software has proven itself a pioneer in the development of next-gen applications.

Tacen recently launched Tacen Compliance, the company’s inaugural product providing an end-to-end token issuance suite for companies seeking to launch tokens in compliance with U.S.-based regulations. Working behind the scenes as part of a longstanding partnership, the Kawazu Sakura Software team has previously assisted Tacen in building out the front-end of the solution.

“We are incredibly excited to be integrating Kawazu Sakura Software’s extensive smart contract expertise into the Tacen ecosystem,” said Jae Yang, CEO and founder of Tacen. “As we continue to expand Tacen and our suite of offerings, it is essential that we simultaneously grow the engineering team developing this software solution. This acquisition significantly increases our ability to deliver high-quality products on mobile and other platforms. As such, it’s a natural outgrowth of our desire to offer robust, multifaceted products–providing the most complete software solutions on the market.”
