Web3 development platform Crossmint announced its expansion into Japan through collaboration with blockchain network Astar and venture Hakuhodo KEY3. The partnership aims to accelerate enterprise adoption of Web3 services in Japan built on the Astar blockchain.

Crossmint will provide its developer tools and expertise to simplify integrations with Astar for major Japanese companies, saving millions in development costs. They have a significant track record on providing Web3 infrastructure, with companies like Microsoft, Etihad Airways, Johnnie Walker, and AC Milan in their portfolio.

Crossmint’s APIs will enable digital ownership and seamless user experiences without typical Web3 complexities. The collaboration aligns with Japan’s national strategy to grow its digital economy, emphasizing NFT and stablecoin importance.

The Japanese stance towards blockchain technology is attracting other crypto entities, such as Circle and Pyth. Crossmint is also expanding its Japan team, seeking a Business Developer to lead regional strategy.

Astar Network leverages Polygon and Polkadot to offer customizable blockchain solutions for global Web3 adoption. Its zkEVM scaling solution facilitates robust, secure Web3 experiences.

Hakuhodo KEY3, established in December 2022, aims to create world-first Web3 services for corporate partners using sei-katsu-sha insights.
