■HashPort Accelerator Inc. Founder Seihaku Yoshida’s comment

I am very pleased and honored to welcome three wonderful projects – Tezos, IOST,and Enjin – to our first HashPort Accelerator program. Tezos is one of the most prominent projects in the world and is expected to be used in many financial solutions including STO. IOST is the next generation smart contract platform. The processing speed is 100,000 TPS, which is several hundred times faster than the conventional speed. Additionally, the community is taking appropriate measures against various problems that plague traditional platforms, such as the proliferation of gambling apps. And Enjin – the world’s largest blockchain game ecosystem – is one of my favorite projects. I am confident that the success of the new game content distribution system based on ERC1155 will accelerate the development of the entire Japanese blockchain game industry. I will do my best to help these wonderful projects prosper in Japan through our accelerator program.

 

■HashPort Accelerator Inc. Director Chief Acceleration Officer Mai Fujimoto’s comment

I am very happy that Tezos, IOST, and Enjin have decided to participate in the first HashPort Accelerator program. Regarding Tezos and IOST, they already have their active communities in Japan because people have noticed the potential of these projects even at an early stage. I would like to support these projects to grow faster. Also, it is very rewarding for me to promote the projects that are proud of their superior technological capabilities but are not yet much talked about in Japan such as Enjin. What these projects have achieved so far is truly amazing and we look forward to contributing to their further success.

 

<Introduction to the Accelerator’s Phase 1 Project>

 

Tezos Japan(Tezos)

HashPort Accelerator and Tezos share a common vision of promoting blockchain technology and the use of Tezos’s development platform. Tezos’s presence in Japan will greatly contribute to the development of the country’s blockchain market, and HashPort Accelerator will provide various forms of support to assist Tezos in this expansion.

 

Tezos has been in development since 2014. Compared with other projects,Tezos specifically focuses on security and the underlying technology, formal verification. Since Tezos is written in OCaml, with Michelson being the language used for smart contracts, it enables the vast reduction of security flaws due to formal verification. We will continue to improve the safety of applications built on Tezos and provide users with a safe and secure public ecosystem.

 

■Tezos Japan Foundation, President Jay Kagawa’s comment

Tezos attaches great importance to the adoption of distributed organizational structures around the world. Tezos Japan regards improving the competitiveness of companies through the utilisation of blockchain technology and works daily with creating awareness of Tezos technology for all industries with a focus on finance.

 

Internet of Services Foundation(IOS Foundation)

IOST developed by IOS Foundation is a next-generation platform for many kinds of DApps that successfully realized both scalability and decentralization. The features of IOST include sharding and microstate blocks. These technological advantages give the platform scalability to achieve high performance while a unique consensus algorithm called Proof of Believability (hereinafter PoB) enables its public blockchain to have strong decentralized properties.

 

HashPort Accelerator and IOS Foundation share a common vision of promoting the blockchain technology and promoting use of the public blockchain platform to establish trustworthy commerce services. As IOST’s expansion into Japan will greatly contribute to the development of the blockchain market in Japan, HashPort plans to provide various supports for success in Japan through HashPort Accelerator.

 

■Internet of Services Foundation Ltd. Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Jimmy Zhong’s comment

Japan is always the first country that comes to mind whenever I think of Crypto or do anything related to crypto. It’s certainly one of the leading countries in the whole world for people’s awareness of cryptocurrencies. Also Japan has an amazing ecosystem for crypto technology, with its legislative framework for cryptocurrencies on the way and many established corporations taking this technology seriously. We would love to explore more in Japan, have more people to learn about IOST, and have more developers, nodes partners, and users to benefit from our blockchain technology. We are really looking forward to it!

 

Enjin Pte Ltd(Enjin)

Enjin’s first product, a gaming community platform called the Enjin Network, has grown to over 20 million users across more than 250,000 gaming communities. In 2017, Enjin expanded its offerings and began building an integrated suite of blockchain products that enable developers to create, manage, and integrate blockchain assets into their games with ease.

Fueled by Enjin Coin (ENJ), a utility token used to directly back the value of Enjin-powered blockchain assets, the Enjin ecosystem is comprised of tools and services that enable game developers and businesses to utilize tokenized digital assets as part of their acquisition, retention, engagement, and monetization strategies.

Enjin’s blockchain game development platform has already attracted more than 7,000 users who will soon be able to create full-scale blockchain games and applications when it launches to Ethereum Mainnet. Enjin’s Blockchain SDK for Unity, the world’s premier game engine, has already been downloaded more than 800 times, and their highly secure blockchain asset wallet, the Enjin Wallet, has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times by Android and iOS users.

■About Tezos Japan

Tezos is a smart contract platform written in Michelson with a public blockchain written in OCaml, a functional programming language. Michelson is a functional language, and has the advantage of making it easy to find code corruption caused by smart contracts such as DAO and Multi-Sig Wallet. Also, Tezos uses a proprietary consensus algorithm called Liquid Proof-of-Stake (LPoS). In addition, a governance process, called on-chain governance, allows for changes in rules based on meta-upgrade changes and matters determined by an on-chain voting system. Tezos is characterized as a self-healing distributed ledger.

■About Internet of Services Foundation Ltd.

Internet of Services Foundation (IOS Foundation), the publisher of IOST and a non-profit organization, published the IOS platform and IOST with the goal of establishing credible commerce in all areas, from gaming to banking. Games, wallets, decentralized exchanges, stable coins and other applications will be launched at the same time, and these applications are compatible with general Ethereum’s smart contracts, which makes the transition quick. In addition, IOS platform applies high-speed transactions using technology called sharding, and adopts the unique consensus algorithm called PoB, which enables building effective decentralized networks. Also, because IOS platform can be written by JavaScript, the most popular programing language,it is highly expected that many developers are able to join DApps development in IOST with ease. This will ultimately accelerate the spread of DApps in the market.
