◎About our blockchain business activity
In May 2018, we released the blockchain application (DApp) “CryptoCrystal”, which was 1st DApp launched by Japanese company (the jurisdiction is a Singapore corporation). It achieved 150,000 pre-registrations. To date, over 11,000 NFT characters have been created on the Ethereum public chain.
