The company partnered with Astar Network, which is a multichain smart contract platform. Through this partnership, NTT Docomo aims to provide citizens of Japan the freedom to use digital assets for governing purposes.
In a recent press release, NTT Docomo aims to work on adoption by also focusing on environmental sustainability, people’s education of Web 3.0, and providing the means for businesses to utilize Web 3.0.
Representatives from Astar Network also acknowledge the importance of educating the public regarding the potential of Web 3.0.
Nonetheless, the state of Japan owns a partial share of NTT Docomo.
The latter has been constantly showing interest in digital assets, Web 3.0, and blockchain technology. This could also be shown by Japan’s Digital Agency. The latter launched a Research DAO specifically for Web 3.0.
