This change, enabling venture capitalists to integrate cryptocurrency assets into their portfolios, signals a bright future for local innovation and lessens dependency on overseas investments. Japan’s global blockchain leadership is underscored by regulatory progress, substantial corporate Web3 investments, and international collaboration, making it a rising hub for Web3 innovation. Partnering with the Shibuya Municipal Government, EDCON is merging blockchain advancements with Japan’s technological prowess.
