Partnership Announcement: Astar Network and Doublejump.tokyo

March 23, 2021 — Today, we are proud to announce our newest collaboration with doublejump.tokyo. In this partnership, doublejump.tokyo will expand its IP-based NFT business on the Astar Network as well as provide technical support for each project launched and help promote the Astar Network.

Doublejump.tokyo has an extensive track record in NFT game development and in providing NFT technology solutions, and has partnered with some of the largest gaming companies and IP holders. On the game development side, it has produced notable play-to-earn NFT games such as My Crypto Heroes. In terms technology solutions, it successfully supported the first official NFT project of Tezuka Productions Co., Ltd., “From the Fragments of Tezuka Osamu”, entitled “Astro Boy.”

Astar Network is the #1 Smart Contract Hub for WASM + EVM on Polkadot. Since winning its Parachain auction in January 2022, Astar Network has become the top Parachain in the Polkadot ecosystem in terms of Total Value Locked ($900M) and most Ethereum assets transferred over ($180M). Astar Network is the leading smart contract hub that connects the Polkadot ecosystem to Ethereum, Cosmos, and all major layer 1 blockchains. Astar Network supports dApps using multiple virtual machines — namely WASM and EVM — and offers the best technology solutions and financial incentives via its Build2Earn and Astar Incubation Program for Web3 developers to build on top of a secure, scalable and interoperable blockchain.

Environmental considerations, low transaction fees, and dedicated support from the Astar core team to drive growth and adoption were some of the key factors that led to the partnership. In addition, the two companies have strong relationships, and both enjoy strong market positions in Japan and have a substantial global community.

Lastly, doublejump.tokyo will also operate a validator for Astar Network, contributing to the geographical dispersion and security of the network. Validators are node operators who each store a copy of the blockchain and must perform certain functions to keep the system secure.

Sota Watanabe, Stake Technologies CEO, remarked, “double jump.tokyo is one of the most reputable NFT builders all over the world. After a long practical conversation, both of us agreed that Astar is one of the best platforms to build NFT use cases. Double jump.tokyo and their partners own a lot of great IPs like Anime and Manga. We are very much looking forward to building these use cases on the top of Astar Network.”
