development Astar Foundation and NTT Digital Join Forces to Advance Web3 Development


Astar Foundation, the developer group behind multichain smart contracts platform Astar Network, has announced a strategic partnership with NTT Digital. Established by Japanese mobile phone operator NTT DoCoMo, NTT Digital is a Web3 platform aimed at providing security and accessibility to enterprises and individuals seeking to build on web3.

The collaboration between the two will focus on advancing Web3 adoption with training programs for talent looking to make a career in the industry, as well as initiatives to create an enabling environment through technical infrastructure. This includes skill development programs and cybersecurity and fraud prevention measures.

Sota Watanabe, founder of Astar Foundation, said: “We’re excited to partner with NTT Digital, who bring decades of experience in building tech infrastructure to drive adoption and innovation. Together, we will empower individuals and businesses to embrace the potential of Web3, enabling a more inclusive, decentralized future.”

The partnership between Astar and NTT began last year, with the Japanese telecommunications giant pledging $4 billion towards accelerating Web3 development in Japan. Earlier this year, Astar Network and Sony Network Communications unveiled a Web3 incubation program that ran from mid-March to June.
