- Taihei Shii
The realization of society where art is democratized and becomes more familiar and valuable as property and culture
In such a future, we expect that people’s creativity will have greater role in advancing not only their culture but also economy
In order to help creating such a society and build an infrastructure for it, we take initiatives to bridge the gap between technology and art.
For instance, Startbahn is developing “Art Blockchain Network (ABN)” as a core product which enables recording, tracking, and sharing information of artwork by utilizing blockchain technology. We also develop API for making a better use of ABN and our own and jointly managed art-related web services.
Our team has deep knowledge of this field, so we are in a position where we can make proposals regarding active changes in it.
Startbahn is highly recognized as a leading company in Art x Blockchain initiative in Japan.
Startbahn has technical expertise in blockchain application design and development based on its continuous effort to develop and improve ABN.
