Folk tales say that the appearance of the Kirin announces the arrival a sage (sennin in Japanese). It also said that the Kirin’s arrival brings a new golden age.

About Shinkirin

The initial idea for Shinkirin was conceived in January 2019, while the founder lived in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The goal was to resolve the lonely deaths that were occurring in Japan. Technology chosen for the proposed project used the blockchain with integrations using IoT wearables.

By November 2020, “Project Buraindo” started with the formation of Shinkirin. Unfortunately, the covid pandemic delayed the start of the project for two years. Initially, the goal was to set up Shinkirin in Japan with Startup Fukuoka. By October 2021, the founder postponed Shinkirin and focus on another project.

The founder returned to the US in September 2022.
