Astar Network, Japan’s leading public blockchain, is the go-to infrastructure for developers in the country. It offers advanced open-source funding methods and multichain smart contracts to facilitate an interconnected Web 3 ecosystem.

Startale Labs aims to enable the use of blockchain technology for individuals and businesses in Japan, with the vision of establishing “Web3 for Billions.” However, there is a need for comprehensive solutions that connect businesses’ existing tech stack with the Web3 ecosystem, as current tools and infrastructure are lacking. Startale Labs and Sony Network Communications will collaborate to address these challenges and bridge the gap between real-world assets and the Web3 ecosystem.

As part of the agreement, Jun Watanabe, the President, CEO, and Representative Director of Sony Network Communications, will join Startale Labs as a director.

Jun Watanabe, President and Executive Officer of Sony Network Communications Inc., stated, “I am excited to further strengthen our collaboration with Startale Labs, a company with advanced Web3 technologies and expertise.

We believe this partnership will lead to new and valuable Web3 use cases.”

Sota Watanabe, CEO of Startale Labs, expressed his excitement about the partnership with Sony Network Communications, highlighting Sony’s achievements in various industries and their potential in the Web3 space. Both companies are eager to collaborate and develop innovative Web3 infrastructure and use cases.
