IOTA, a crypto currency start-up, announced that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government had chosen it to participate in its Blockchain Business Camp Tokyo program, aimed at helping development companies that work with blocking technology.

The program will last 2 months. At this time, several mitapes and events will be organized, which will help IOTA settle in Japan.

With the rapid growth of IOTA in Asia and the increasing interest of Asian companies to work with IOTA, we think that this is a unique opportunity for the Foundation to setup a dedicated, staffed office in Tokyo with support from the government and start working with the local ecosystem. Several of the Founders and Core Developers will frequent Japan during the program and the Foundation will setup several Meetups and Events to help kickstart IOTA’s growth in the Japanese community.

5 companies registered outside of Japan can take part in the government program. Their products will be promoted in the country, including through a digital information system used at Shinjuku stations in the center of Tokyo. In addition, if the company decides to continue working in Japan after the end of the program, the government promises to support it in the future.
