In the popular coin voting event, from July 16 to August 16, 2020 organized by Huobi Japan/co-hosted by HashPort, IOST officially won the number 1 spot against 5 other popular blockchain projects Tezos, Ontology, Enjin, NEO & Qtum, all of which have active community members and talented developers in Japan.
IOST started its activities in Japan in 2018. From the beginning, IOST has focused on educating potential engineers and contributing to the understanding of blockchain technology in rural areas. IOST’s activities have grown into a “Free Blockchain Education Program”, in which the team worked with law firms and software development companies to provide free workshops to 7 universities and educational institutions and over 300 students to understand advanced technologies.
