Japanese tech giant Fujitsu has unveiled a new platform to support global Web3 developers. It lets companies and individual users to connect to co-create transformational, value-added solutions to a variety of issues facing society.
The Fujitsu Web3 Acceleration Platform offers a developmental environment, blockchain-based service APIs and high-computing technologies for startups, partner companies and universities building Web3 applications and services.
Fujitsu hopes to create a rich ecosystem that enables users to develop Web3 applications covering a broad range of use cases, including digital content rights management, contracts, business transactions and processes.
It will also provide access to the platform free of charge to select participants of its global partner program, Fujitsu Accelerator Program for CaaS to drive co-creation of new Web3 services. Program partners can use the platform in Japan from March 2023, with availability also expanding to partners globally later this year.
In addition to blockchain and verification technologies, the platform will provide users access to Fujitsu’s advanced computing technologies and applications for developing and running simulations, AI and combinatorial optimisation applications. This will help users to analyse and evaluate multiple scenarios for formulating solutions to various issues based on data that ensures trust.
Fujitsu’s three key themes of Web3
1. Realisation of a co-creation society through decentralized autonomous organisations (DAO)
2. Rights management and utilisation of digital contents
3. Realisation of digital trust
As the company expands services and functionality for its new Web3 platform from March 2023, it also plans to hold a global planning and development contest to build and implement DAO communities and create new Web3 services.
Hiroyoshi Miwa, vice president of Kwansei Gakuin University in Japan, said: “Web3 is still in its infancy, but it has the potential to open up a whole new world. To achieve this goal, it is important not only to research and develop advanced technologies, but also to create new services. In the post Covid era, there are efforts to make use of Web3 in the field of education and research. We will also use this platform to challenge various innovative initiatives and contribute to social implementation at our institution.”
Yoshito Sudo, founder and CEO of TC3 K.K, also said: “We are excited about the launch of the Fujitsu Web3 Acceleration Platform. Our company helps enterprises to build digital products and AI engines by working with global gig economies. By participating in the Fujitsu Web3 Acceleration Platform, we plan to prototype Web3 application services and DAO community services. With this initiative, we believe that we can promote our vision of ‘Gig Innovated’, a world in which we can achieve innovation with Gig Economy.”
