Toyota Joins the Blockchain Revolution with DAO Event

Toyota Explores Blockchain Possibilities in DAO Hackathon

Toyota is exploring blockchain use cases through its involvement in a Web3 hackathon for decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) developers hosted by Astar Network.

This is Toyota’s first Web3 event and it is aiming to develop a proof of concept DAO tool for its employees.

Astar Foundation is pledging $100,000 in funding for the hackathon, which will be hosted in Astar’s Polkadot-based metaverse, COZMISE.

Participants will develop their products on the Astar Network, a Japan-based layer-1 blockchain.

Toyota has already established a blockchain lab in 2020 to explore the future of distributed ledger technology and its role in the automotive industry, and also teamed up with a Japanese crypto exchange to develop a Toyota-branded digital token.
