Southeast Asia's blockchain-powered fintech company OmiseGO, in collaboration with Japanese VC firm Global Brain, has announced that it will open its inaugural blockchain co-working space Shibuya in Tokyo later this year. Christened Neutrino, the initiative aims to assist the growth of the blockchain community in Japan, and also to connect innovators and projects to the global ecosystem. The Neutrino community will be putting heavy emphasis on building an active and inclusive culture, a critical component that will contribute to the success of blockchain startups. Members will benefit from Neutrino’s mentorship opportunities, exclusive events and co-working space. Several technology, government, business and community partners have been invited to participate in this initiative. OmiseGO, with an additional contribution from Ethereum Founder Vitalik Buterin, is donating the equivalent of US$1 million in OMG tokens to refugees living in extreme poverty. GiveDirectly, an NGO that enables donors to send funds directly to people living in extreme poverty, will deliver the funds to the beneficiaries.
