In the Web3 field, Japan is attracting unprecedented attention from the world, backed by the Japanese government’s backing and examples of major companies (see below).
May 2010: Prime Minister Kishida expressed his intention to develop a Web3 environment in London, England.
June 2010: Added “Environmental improvement for Web3 promotion” item to the government’s basic policy 2022

While the decline in Japan’s economic strength and competitiveness has been a long-standing issue, this field, which has strengths in cross-border (international reach), is the content industry of Japan, which is called an “IP (intellectual property)” powerhouse such as anime, manga, and games. One of the reasons is that it has the potential to greatly support the DX (digital transformation) of various industries and the advancement of global businesses. In this way, Japan has begun to make serious efforts to create new innovations and businesses, but the bottleneck is the development of an environment such as a closed system design against the background of the language environment and regulations that are not in line with reality. It is also pointed out that Japan is lagging behind other countries.
In addition, many Japanese business operators have highlighted various issues in terms of knowledge and business idea building, corporate networks, business personnel, etc. to promote Web3 business. Against this background, CoinPost believes that the establishment of an international conference that can establish a distribution network for international exchange and information and human resources in the three Web fields is essential for the growth of the entire Japanese blockchain industry in the Asian market. increase.
In July 2023, the Tokyo International Forum, which will be equipped with a “simultaneous interpretation system”, will start working on an event where visitors from all over the world can gather together. We also have tickets for companies that are considering introducing Web3 technology or entering the Web3 industry in some way. If you would like to know more, please contact us using the form below.
