HashPort Accelerator Inc. Founder Seihaku Yoshida’s comment

I am very pleased to work with Qtum as the second phase of the HashPort Accelerator program. The theme of this second term is “maturity” and “practice”. With a strong need for digital transformation using blockchain technology in Japan and the ongoing studies of blockchain in industries following policy changes in China, there has been a “mature” ecosystem and a growing need for a “practical” blockchain platform within the business not limited to PoC in the world. Qtum has “matured” team, ecosystem, and solutions based on their long history. Their technology has already been “practiced” into both business and public systems. Qtum has always been actively working with local government in China to explore the utilities of blockchain technology. For a stronger open source ecosystem, Qtum also integrated advanced solutions and built tight connections with tech giants Microsoft, Amazon and Alibaba. I am convinced that the spread of Qtum project in Japan, it will lead to further acceleration of updating of the entire Japanese actual social and economic system using blockchain technology. It is also our mission of HashPort. I will make every effort to help Qtum project blooming in Japan with the HashPort Accelerator team.
