SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director, President & Chief Executive Officer; Eiichi Yonekura) will acquire capital in FRAME00, Inc. (Head Office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; Chief Executive Officer; Mayumi Hara) concentrating the technologies and assets owned by both parties, and conclude a contract about business alliance to begin collaboration with the aim of creating Web 3-related businesses in the media and entertainment industry.

The use of blockchain-related technology—a core element of Web 3—has the potential to update the activities and experiences of both content creators and fans, and both SKY Perfect JSAT and FRAME00 will promote business development with a grasp of new markets and needs, such as the expanding creator economy.

Examples of business development:
Offering new experiences to communities in various genres, including anime and idols
● Distribution of limited badges (NFTs) only given out to passionate fans
● Royalties passed on to creators when derivative works are created and distributed
● Broadcasting of content where the story is decided by fan voting

In addition, regarding the issue of unauthorized use of copyright, which is often seen as a problem in the media and entertainment industry, SKY Perfect JSAT and FRAME00 will also consider the development of unprecedented and innovative solutions which utilize blockchain technology for issues such as copyright protection.
