Tokyo, Japan - February 26, 2024

In the ever-evolving world of web3, choosing the right dog breed as a project's mascot is key. While many opt for the Shiba Inu, Sei is breaking new ground by teaming up with the Akita breed. The partnership between Sei and Meta Akita aims to introduce the beloved Akita Inu to the digital world, blending Web3 technology with Japan’s rich cultural heritage.

This also marks Sei's commitment to continuing to build culturally significant relationships in Japan.

Sei, a pioneering Layer 1 blockchain that combines the strengths of Ethereum and Solana, has strategically aligned with Meta Akita, a leading web3 initiative born from the esteemed Akita Inu Preservation Society. With a history spanning over a century, Meta Akita brings a wealth of expertise and reverence for the Akita Inu breed, while Sei offers cutting-edge blockchain capabilities and a growing foothold within the Japanese community.

The Akita Inu holds a special place in the hearts of people worldwide, symbolizing loyalty and companionship. From the legendary tale of Hachiko, the famous dog who earned a statue in the heart of Tokyo, to its enduring presence in Japanese culture, the Akita embodies the timeless bond between humans and their canine companions.

Through this collaboration, Sei and Meta Akita seek to usher in a new era of digital innovation by infusing the essence of the Akita Inu into the web3 space. By leveraging Sei's robust infrastructure and Meta Akita's deep-rooted understanding of the breed, the partners aim to cultivate a vibrant dog culture within the crypto community while strengthening ties within Japan and beyond.

Meta Akita's innovative projects, like blockchain-based pedigrees, membership NFTs, and a dedicated Akita metaverse, show how tradition and technology come together. The upcoming Akita Inu-themed NFT collection on Sei blends art, culture, and blockchain, giving fans a special digital experience inspired by the noble Akita breed.

While the Shiba Inu has long held sway in the crypto space, Sei and Meta Akita envision a future where the Akita Inu emerges as a symbol of innovation and inclusivity within web3. Together, the partners are committed to challenging the status quo and establishing the Akita Inu as a beloved emblem of the digital age.
