Comments from pafin Co-chairman: Amin Azmoudeh and Gaku Saito
“We foresee that peer-to-peer transactions will increasingly encompass not just assets and goods, but also services, information, ideas, experiences, and communities. In a peer-to-peer world, individuals bear greater responsibility, a burden previously shouldered by marketplace organizers. We view Web3 as an evolution of this peer-to-peer concept on the internet. Through cryptact and defitact, we aim to alleviate these burdens and challenges. With the funds raised, we plan to expand our services to become a part of the leading infrastructure of the Web3 era.”
