Comments on appointment
I am very excited about the opportunity to participate in Financier as an outside director. Japan has strong web3 engineering capabilities since the early days of the industry. As a global tech company from Japan, the highly experienced management team that deals with sports, entertainment, and local issues, together with highly motivated employees, are challenging new ways of value creation and value exchange through the community. I feel a high possibility of I have dealt with issues that are difficult to solve with conventional systems, such as “living,” “climate change,” and “sports.” Through my work, I have come to realize that the greatest amount of energy that humans can produce is artificial dream-synthetic energy, which is the result of the combination of dreams.
We believe that the Financier platform will greatly improve areas where technology has not been able to contribute to the richness of society and the essential joys of human beings, and that this will contribute to the improvement of the lives and cultures of people around the world. It is a big dream for me to be very happy to be able to support with my experience.
