At Astar Network, we’re excited to see more real-life use cases of enterprises exploring and leveraging NFTs to build closer relationships with their customers and provide new value. We look forward to supporting PRO Japan and JR Kyushu in their endeavor.
The move remains significant particularly because it introduces Blockchain to the country’s extensive high-speed railway system. Along with many other benefits, Jr Kyushu’s adoption of the Astar network will bring about lower fees, high scalability, and the team’s deep understanding of the Japanese market.
