(TSE First Section 4763, Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President and CEO Yukihiro Ikawa, hereafter, C&R), a company that develops creator agency businesses such as video, games, web, advertising and publishing, in order to create a world where creators can enjoy fair profit sharing by utilizing NFT and blockchain.
[Singapore, 8 April 2021]
DEA has been developing and operating blockchain games using NFT (Non-fungible token) since its establishment in 2018, and is now known as one of the industry’s top runners with more than 800,000 registered platform users. From the beginning, DEA has set the goal of “enriching the content world by protecting the rights of creators” and have actually started the operation of protecting the rights of copyright holders using smart contracts.
Meanwhile, C&R started its business in 1990 as a pioneer of creator agencies specializing in the creative field. Based on the philosophy of “creating the prosperity of people and society by supporting creators,” we are expanding our business on a global scale as an agent for a wide variety of creators. We have reached this capital and business alliance with the idea that two companies with the same basic philosophy will work together to enable speedy and effective business development by utilizing the latest technologies such as NFT and blockchain.
As for specific initiatives, we plan to collaborate in the area of NFT art, which has become a hot topic in the world, and then develop new blockchain games.
