Major Corporations Drive Adoption and Development of Decentralized Technology

The presence of large corporations in Web3 marks a transformative change in the tech industry by adding credibility and financing to the field. Their resources and knowledge boost Web3 innovation, resulting in the creation of better tools and services for users.


This increased participation also expands awareness and understanding of Web3, attracting more investment and talent to the industry. As Web3 continues to grow and mature, the impact of these large corporations on Web3’s development and adoption will likely become even more significant.

Understanding the Importance of Web3 Hackathons in Startup and Blockchain Culture

Web3 Hackathons play a vital role in fostering innovation by bringing together individuals with diverse backgrounds and skills. Participants are given a limited amount of time to work together on a project and come up with innovative solutions to various challenges.


The fast-paced and intensive environment of Web3 hackathons promotes creativity and encourages out-of-the-box thinking, leading to unique solutions as these events bring together developers, designers, and entrepreneurs to build decentralized applications (dApps). ETHGlobal Hackathons, Binance X DEX Hackathon and DoraHacks Web3 hackathon are a few successful implementations of web3 hackathons that have fostered creativity and unique solutions to DeFi-based problems previously.

Astar Network Partners with Toyota for Intra-Company DAO Support Tool Development

Toyota Motors Corporation, the Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer, is sponsoring its first-ever global Web3 hackathon. The company, with over 330,000 employees worldwide, has chosen Astar Network, a smart contract platform, as the provider of Web3 use cases. The aim of the hackathon is to build a DAO support tool that would improve the company's operations, increase transparency and efficiency. Developers from around the world are invited to participate and create the tool on Astar Network. The platform will provide the necessary environment and support for product development.

The theme of the hackathon is to develop a DAO support tool for companies, with the objective of reducing managers' workload and allowing team members to have a greater impact on company growth. With the increasing demands of business decision-making and team management, the use of a DAO to manage projects can distribute decision-making among participants, making it more efficient and reducing the burden on managers.


This hackathon marks Toyota's first step towards its vision of using technology to improve its operations, and Astar Network is proud to be part of this initiative. The outcome of this hackathon could have far-reaching implications for the use of Web3 technology in the business world.
