KDDI Joins Oasys Blockchain Ecosystem, Exploring Gaming and Entertainment Collaborations

Japanese telecommunications giant KDDI Corporation has officially joined the Oasys gaming-optimized blockchain network as a validator. The move comes as KDDI continues to expand its presence in the Web3 space, having recently launched its metaverse service offering, “αU” (Alpha U). This platform provides a variety of products and services for the metaverse, including streaming, virtual shopping, music and art appreciation, social networking, and a digital asset wallet and marketplace.

KDDI is the second major Japanese technology conglomerate to join the Oasys validator network in recent months, following SoftBank’s entry in February 2023. Both companies will work with 21 other initial validators, including well-known brands such as SEGA, Bandai Namco Research, Ubisoft, Square Enix, and Yield Guild Games, to secure and stabilize the Oasys network.

Shunpei Tatebayashi, General Manager at KDDI Corporation, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership, noting Oasys’ successful collaborations with leading Japanese companies in gaming and entertainment. He also emphasized KDDI’s commitment to growing with Oasys in redefining the Web3 space, bringing the company’s communications infrastructure expertise to the table.

Daiki Moriyama, Director of Oasys, praised KDDI’s drive in Japan’s digital ecosystem and expressed excitement at the prospect of working together to build essential infrastructure for the Oasys network. By joining forces, the two companies aim to enhance the stability and security of the network while pushing the boundaries of gaming and entertainment content. The partnership aligns with Oasys’ mission of promoting mainstream adoption of blockchain technology and bringing blockchain gaming to a global audience.
