“2024 will be the year when blockchain and Web3 enter the mainstream industries and achieve widespread adoption worldwide. Based on the prominent market share of the Web 3 adoption in the Japanese market, Astar Network is the most proactive blockchain in creating real-life use cases for the masses while expanding into global markets, including Korea.

“23rd just yesterday, the stock price of Toyota Motor Corporation on the Tokyo Stock Exchange expanded to a closing price of 4.88 trillion yen, surpassing the record set in the NTT stock price bubble of 1987, marking the highest ever for Japanese companies. Japan has overcome the challenging times known as the ‘Lost 30 Years,’ and we are on the verge of a turning point. At the same time, it’s remarkable that TSMC and Samsung are still positioned above this renewed high. There is much to learn from Taiwanese and Korean companies. Astar Foundation and Startale Labs aim to expand globally by learning the best practices from the Korean market, known for its strong application services, in line with the ‘Web3 for Billions’ slogan. We are grateful for the support of DeSpread in the Korean blockchain ecosystem, and we feel confident moving forward together.”—Sota Watanabe, the founder of Astar Foundation,
