One of the reasons for this is that it has the potential to greatly support the DX (digital transformation) of various industries and the expansion into global business. In this way, Japan has begun to make serious efforts to create new innovations and businesses, but environmental improvements such as closed system designs based on language environments and regulations that do not correspond to the actual situation have become bottlenecks.

Additionally, many businesses in Japan have highlighted challenges in a variety of areas, including building knowledge and business ideas to advance Web3 businesses, corporate networks, and business human resources. Against this background, CoinPost believes that establishing an international conference that can establish international exchanges and distribution networks of information and human resources in the Web3 field is essential for the growth of the Japanese blockchain industry as a whole in the Asian market.
