Tokyo Institute of Technology Associate Professor Partners with Early works co., Ltd.

BEXAM’s exclusive partner company, and developer of BEXAM’s core technology, Early works co., Ltd, has signed a partnership with Associate Professor Kazuyuki Shudo of the Tokyo Institute of Technology to help improve the Proof of Rounds algorithm.

Early works co., Ltd. is the proprietary development team behind the Proof of Rounds algorithm, based in Tokyo, Japan. BEXAM Global LLC is exclusively partnered with Early Works for the development of the BEXAM platform and exchange. It is with Early Works’ superior technology that we are able to create a practical blockchain platform for enterprises everywhere.

We are including their press release translated into English (original in Japanese here) and extend our warm congratulations on this new partnership!

“Early works Co., Ltd. has entered a partnership with Prof. Kazuyuki Shudo, Associate Professor of Information Science and Engineering at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, for improvements on our independently developed blockchain technology “Proof of Rounds”.

Blockchain is one of the latest technologies attracting attention worldwide, along with AI, IoT, and big data. It is expected to be a fundamental technology in solving recent issues of data leakage and counterfeit/falsified goods in logistics.

However, a tradeoff for the increased security of blockchain is speed and scalability, a major reason for businesses hesitating to implement blockchain technology.

Against this backdrop is Early works, who, after intense studying, has independently developed “Proof of Rounds,” an ultra-high-speed blockchain which functions as a database. Early works began collaborating with Mr. Kazuyuki Shudo, who has specialized knowledge in blockchain, to gain insights from a third-party on the performance and security of Proof of Rounds.

Early works and Associate Professor Shudo join efforts to further refine the original blockchain, and agree to engage in mutual guidance and exchange of information from both a business and academic standpoint.

Through the synergetic efforts of this collaboration, Early Works aims to further improve its product as a functional and valuable blockchain for businesses and to continue researching, building, and developing systems that companies and users alike can use more reliably.
