Emurgo, a Japanese firm that supports and performs incubation of businesses in order to integrate it with blockchain decentralisation system Cardano Project, has begun introducing its services in Indonesia.
In the “Blockchain for Real-World Problems” event hosted by Indonesian agritech startup HARA, Emurgo Head of Business Development Shunsuke Murasaki spoke about the firm’s upcoming projects in the country that will involve universities and its students.
One of the projects included a signed MoU with Indonesian Association for Higher Education in Computing (Aptikom). Through this partnership, Emurgo expects to develop fresh talents for the blockchain sector.
“In addition to training, we will also provide certificates that will be beneficial for entrepreneurs in Indonesia,” Murasaki said.
By Q4 2018, Cardano Project aims to secure more partnerships with universities in Indonesia and various business sectors to accelerate the implementation of blockchain technology in the country.
The presence of Emurgo and Cardano Project is supported by the Indonesian Blockchain Association.
ADA to be available in Asia soon
As an open-source-based service, Cardano claimed to be the first blockchain platform to implement the concept of scientific philosophy and develop its platform using the most advanced researches.
“Our market value is already in top seven list globally, supported by three major organisations Emurgo, IOHK, and Cardano Foundation,” Murasaki said.
Cardano Project has developed a token called ADA, which will function as a cryptocurrency that is integrated to various mobile payment in Asia. One of the project’s partners in Korea will integrate ADA to their mobile payment system around Q3 2018 while its full implementation will be out in Q4.
“We expect ADA to turn our cryptocurrency into a top choice for mobile marketing platform developers, as it can be easily customised for fintech platforms,” Murasaki ended.
