Comments from Investors
Mr. Masato Shimodaira, DIMENSION Business Producer
Pacific Meta is a startup that aims to help companies and projects that promote web3 in Japan and abroad and to light up hope for clients in the early days of the Web3 industry, which is still in chaos, with different regulatory standards in Japan and abroad. We decided to make a lead investment in this round based on the founder Iwasaki’s achievements since his student days, his ability to make things happen, his knowledge of the Web3 domain, and his track record of business with global Web3 companies.All of us at DIMENSION will continue to support its management to realize its vision of becoming a Japan-originated global Web3 company to make Web3 a more “pacific” .

When I think of the future of the individual, I believe that those who do what they enjoy from the bottom of their hearts are more likely to become winners in their life. I am really looking forward to seeing the company develop a series of services that embody such a “Play to Earn” worldview and make our lives more enjoyable and richer.
