东京都政府正式发布区块链企业加速计划

东京都政府正在与日本智库野村综合研究所(NRI)就“Blockchain Business Camp Tokyo”计划进行合作,这是以新兴技术为重点的加速系列计划的第三代版本,预计于明年1月正式启动。这项加速计划正在寻求专注于供应链、物联网和资本市场基础设施等领域的海外公司。

东京都政府的官员上周末表示,加速计划的申请日期将持续到11月24日,预计会有五家公司入选,入选的公司会在12月的某个时间发布通知。根据东京都政府的声明,这项加速计划将持续到明年3月份。

政府官员表示,这项计划将有助于入围初创公司当前的工作发展,包括帮助它们在公共场所宣传产品和服务。

东京政府在一份声明继续补充道:“海外入围公司的技术和服务将通过位于东京市中心新宿和东京站附近的数字标牌进行广告宣传,对决定在东京开展业务的公司也将提供支持 。”

据了解,这项计划是日本迄今为止最引人注目的公共事业发展计划之一。今年春天,日本政府最终确定并通过了一项将比特币视为新型付款方式的法律,为国内许多公司提供了在商店进行试用的机会。

而上个月,监管机构向11个比特币交易所发放了许可证,这一举措反映了日本政府对这项新技术所采取的积极态度。

 

 

Tokyo is organizing a new blockchain-focused startup accelerator, set to officially start in January.

Announced this week, Tokyo Metropolitan Government is working with Japanese think tank Nomura Research Institute (NRI) on the "Blockchain Business Camp Tokyo," the third iteration of a series of accelerator programs that have focused on emerging technologies. The accelerator program is seeking companies based outside of Japan that are focused on applications in areas like supply chain, Internet of Things and capital markets infrastructure, among others.

The application period for the accelerator will last until Nov. 24, officials announced late last week. Five companies are expected to join, and those selected will be notified sometime in December ahead of the program's commencement the following month. The accelerator will last until March, according to statements.

Officials suggested that it would work to advance the work being done by the chosen startups, including a plan to help them advertise their products and services in public spaces.

"Furthermore, the technologies and services of the foreign companies participating in the program (about five companies) will be advertised for an extended period using digital signage located around Shinjuku and Tokyo stations in the heart of Tokyo, and support will be extended to foreign companies that decide to establish their business in Tokyo," the government said in a statement.

The development represents one of the more notable public-sector developments in Japan to date. This spring, lawmakers finalized and passed a law recognizing bitcoin as a kind of payment method, setting the stage for a number of companies in the country to trial accepting it in stores.

And last month, regulators issued licenses to 11 bitcoin exchanges – a move that reflected the proactive stance the government in Japan has taken toward the tech to date.
