As it is stated on the official ETZ website, EtherZero is a hard fork of Ethereum which aims to provide no-fee, high expansibility, real-time transaction or operation feedback services. Aiming to be a general-purpose smart contract platform, ETZ helps developers set up DAPPs that are not limited in finance and business scope, but more frequently used in daily life, to popularize decentralized services to more people and industries.

EtherZero hard fork was successfully launched on January 20, 2018 on block 4936270. The initial total supply is about 194 million ETZ, and each ETH holder receives 1 ETZ for each 1 ETH , total 97 million ETZ, and another 97 million ETZ is reserved for late development and foundation operation by the team.

The country’s first specialized blockchain co-working space Neutrino was instituted  by Omise in Tokyo in March of 2018. Omise, a Thai-based launch, sees Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin among its advisors and closed a $25 million ICO in new financing last year to construct a decentralized payments platform Omise Go, powered by OMG, an ERC20 token cryptocurrency. The project aims to advance study to ultimately deploy operational implementations of blockchain tech and cryptocurrency in services and businesses.

One of the largest Japanese banks Mizuho declared on Friday that it will sponsor the coworking space in an arrangement that will also see the bank turn a “long-term tenant” of the coworking space.

Mizuho considers that blockchain is a decentralized technology that will have a transformative impact across industries, beginning it will “simplify and optimize” business operations of different types. In outlining its own aims to implement the technology to deliver better financial services to its customers, Mizuho guesses Neutrino and the interactions within the coworking space “will bring us one step closer to developing commercial applications for blockchain technology.”

In addition to sponsoring Neutrino, Mizuho will be a long–term tenant of the coworking space, and we look forward to finding applications for blockchain technology and being able to develop new business areas together with the wide variety of sponsors, members, and other specialists Neutrino plans to attract.
