canow Co-Founder / CEO Kunihiro Katsuragi / Comments
I have been building my relationship with Mr. Guido since before the creation of SEBA Bank. He established and developed the latter as a next-generation bank in Switzerland, a country with top-class standards on the world stage, in order to integrate crypto with traditional finance at a time when the world did not see the potential for tokens as much as it does now. I was fascinated by his foresight, management skills and ability to bring his vision to life. After about four years, I am looking forward to working with such people to bring my own into existence / into the world. Of course, we will continue to promote our business in Japan, but from now on, we will also actively look to other countries and regions that will welcome our innovation.
With Mr. Guido’s participation, we will accelerate the establishment of the “autonomous decentralized data bank” business model that we are aiming for, as well as the establishment of global standards for regulations. We will also strengthen our appeal to domestic and overseas partners and investors.
We are implementing the global standard of DID/SSID by providing the world’s only block chain “canow chain” centered on data management using DID. While performing distributed processing of IDs and data, we provide an environment where businesses that provide services that comply with regulations related to personal data in each country can easily develop and build a secure scalable infrastructure.
