Aiming to become a global financial city, Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) is working to push forward the implementation of blockchain into both financial and non-financial sectors.

As part of this movement, TMG is going to launch a new initiative called the "Blockchain Business Camp Tokyo", which is the third business camp held by TMG, followed by FinTech and New Tech business camp.

By running this short-term intensive program over the course of two months, TMG aims to generate ground-breaking innovation to improve convenience for Tokyo's residents and re-energize the city's economy.
