Imusify, a NEO blockchain-based music platform has concluded its tour in Japan. The team toured with Switcheo, NEO’s first decentralized exchange, and O3 Labs, one of NEO’s leading wallets from June 23rd to July 3rd and spoke at events in Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka. The events promoted NEO across the country and also introduced new developers to the ecosystem.
The first major event for the NEO teams was the Japan Blockchain Conference Tokyo 2018 that was held on June 26th. The conference was the first of its kind in Japan and featured over 100 cryptocurrency experts and blockchain companies with over 5,000 attendees. It also had support from Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The NEO projects spoke alongside industry leaders at the event, including Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com, Keith Teare of TechCrunch, Charles Hoskins, former CEO of Ethereum, and Toni Lane Casserly, CoinTelegraph co-founder, among many others.
At the conference, Imusify outlined the issues of the music industry today and how its platform can bring new life into the music economy. The team also shared its story of how it started on the NEO ecosystem, and that it’s proud to be part of an open and friendly development community that values quality projects and long-term sustainability.
After the Japan Blockchain Conference Tokyo 2018, Imusify had an interview with CoinTokyo, a prominent cryptocurrency web media agency with a large readership of blockchain and cryptocurrency enthusiasts in Japan. Next, the team left for Fukuoka on Kyushu Island; also known as the ‘Silicon Valley of Japan.’ There, the teams spent the night attending the Growth Next Event co-organized by the Fukuoka Engineer Lab. It’s claimed that the event was a success, as it was yet another opportunity to connect with developers and blockchain enthusiasts about NEO and spread awareness to a wider audience.
Next, the group went back to Tokyo for the Block Co+ Asia event held at the Hilton Tokyo Odaiba. After the event, the team had a number of discussions with professors from Keio University and representatives of Japanese companies. Imusify discussed various blockchain solutions like the ‘Crowd Cloud’ and P2P micropayments and how they can be used to improve the operations of local businesses.
The Block Co+ Asia event also featured a performance by Imusify’s CEO and founder David Walters. David gave a freestyle rap and it was recorded and posted on the platform’s YouTube channel.
After the Block Co+ Asia event, Imusify, Switcheo, O3 and NEO Japan were invited to address the audience at Keio University, an institution known for excellence in technology and innovation. There, the teams explained and demonstrated how blockchain technologies can be used to improve the education system.
Finally, the event was followed by a radio interview and presentation of NEO Shanghai and Switcheo at the Yahoo! Japan headquarters in Osaka. It’s claimed that the feedback received at the event was overwhelmingly positive for its UI/UX solutions.
Imusify is grateful to NEO Japan for inviting the team to its roadshow and meeting so many leaders and influencers in Japan. They’d also like to thank both Switcheo and O3 labs for their support comradeship along the way.
