The lab is open to some customers and hackathon participants who work on Alibaba Cloud and collaboration projects, with engineers from partner companies specializing in Alibaba Cloud and blockchain providing technical support locally. Game developers can attend regular seminars, workshops, and networking events to learn the latest Web3 technology trends and knowledge.

In summary, the launch of the blockchain lab in Shibuya and the partnership with game developers is a significant step in promoting blockchain and Web3.0 technologies in Japan. The lab’s provision of technical support, incubation, and networking opportunities can help drive growth in the Web3 community, particularly in the gaming industry.
