Korea’s blockchain project ICON will operate a blockchain accelerating program in Japan. Deblock Japan with which ICON has partnerships will operate a Tokyo Launchpad of “ICX Station,” the accelerating program sponsored by partners inside and outside of Japan and ICON.
ICON is operating accelerating programs in Seoul, San Francisco and Singapore through ICX Station. In Korea, Deblock is operating a Seoul Launchpad while helping domestic DApp projects make headway into the global market.
ICON and Deblock Japan plan to detect DApp projects in Japan together. Their particular attention is focused on fintech, sharing economy, game and entertainment, digital media and e-commerce where the chances of token economy utilization are high. ICON is ready to carry out seed investment in selected projects.
Kim Jong-hyup, council member of the ICON Foundation, said, “Japan introduced the self-regulation system of Japan’s Virtual Currency Exchange Association (JVCEA) last year and is doing its utmost to build guidelines and regulations for cryptocurrency and initial coin offerings (ICOs) as this year’s chair of the G20.” Kim Min-koo, head of Deblock Japan, expressed hope to “take the lead in creating the ICON ecosystem in Japan.” /firstname.lastname@example.org
