Bunz Japan
Our inaugural project, Bunz Japan, is a company created to help connect young people with the hidden value in their lives — helping the community live better without spending more. In a world that is dominated by large, centralized internet companies that take the economic value of their users, Bunz helps businesses and consumers realize the value of their contributions.
