On Tuesday, May 14, from 7-9pm, @impacthubtokyo willl host Tokyo FinTech Meetup #42, focusing on Soramitsu & Linux Foundation (Hyperledger). Soramitsu is the gem among Japanese blockchain companies. Founded in 2016 by @makototakemiya and Ryu Okada, the company's blockchain technology, Iroha, was accepted by the Hyperledger under the Linux Foundation's governance by November that year, complementing Fabric, Sawtooth Lake, and other potential projects by creating reusable components in C++ that can be called from languages such as Go. Just a few weeks ago, the Web3 Foundation has released a grant to Soramitsu to develop a Polkadot runtime environment in C++. In between these two milestones were several implementations with the likes of Rakuten (for KYC system development), Sompo Holdings (for weather derivatives), the National Bank of Cambodia (for digital currencies), and many more. Soramitsu focuses on delivery, not marketing - this evening will offer a unique opportunity to learn more about the various initiatives the company has under way.
In addition, we welcome Noriaki Fukuyasu, the Vice President of Japan Operations at the Linux Foundation, who will provide a holistic update on the state of Hyperledger.
There will be ample time for networking, please go to www.meetup.com/tokyofintech/ to register! ⭐️
