  • The Charter of Blockchain Collaborative Consortium

Blockchain technology is not just at the heart of FinTech (Financial Technology) therefore gaining popularity, but it is about to contribute significantly to the evolution of information systems in just about every industry. Prior to the formation of this consortium, knowledge and achievements related to blockchain in Japan weren’t shared, so the scope of applications was limited. Therefore, we who believe in the future of blockchain technology, strive to help Japan stay competitive and contribute to the evolution of blockchain technology by sharing information, competing fairly, promoting blockchain, actively expanding the scope of blockchain applications, and supporting funding for blockchain research. We will coordinate with other blockchain organizations around the world. We will bring home what we learn from overseas, and as a leading country of blockchain technology, we will disseminate our expertise and experience globally.

The Vision Embodied by the Logo

BCCC Stands for Blockchain Collaborative Consortium. The orange color in BC is paying homage to Bitcoin where blockchain originated. The color is frequently used in Bitcoin. For “Collaborative,” we used blue to denote our collaborate promotion, and for “Consortium,” we used green to show our harmony. The shape of the Logo shows the image of how the blockchain technology which comes from bitcoin will connect, evolve, and move forward.
