Japan’s largest mobile operator NTT Docomo signed a contract with the Polkadot Astar Network blockchain to create a consortium for the promotion and popularization of Web3. The organization, partially owned by the state, seeks to accelerate the introduction of this technology in the country.
A partnership agreement with a multinetwork smart contract platform will allow individuals and corporations to use tokens for management. Astar Network and NTT Docomo have agreed to cooperate in three main areas. They will strive for the sustainable development of the ecosystem by exploring environmental issues in Web3, as well as trying to eliminate technological gaps on the way to wider adoption of the technology.
Finally, organizations will create a training program, providing engineers and business leaders with opportunities to gain knowledge and gain practical experience.
Astar Network CEO Sota Watanabe assured: the mission of his project is to bring Web3 to the world level. He stressed that more advanced platforms and services with a user-friendly interface in an infrastructure accessible to all are needed for mass implementation. According to him, we are talking about the formation of a community in which people can enjoy the benefits of Web3 on a daily basis.
Japan began to actively develop the Web3 space, and also paid great attention to the cryptocurrency sectors and decentralized financing (DeFi). A few days ago, the Japanese Digital Agency launched a research decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) to study the implementation of Web3.
