Naoki Akazawa

CTO, Fracton Ventures

In 2016, I embarked on a freelance software engineering journey, crafting applications powered by machine learning and blockchain technologies. My passion for these innovative domains led me to join FLOC Co., Ltd. in 2019, where I imparted my knowledge and developed comprehensive training programs for aspiring blockchain professionals. Driven by a desire to make a broader impact, I co-founded Fracton Ventures Co., Ltd. in late January 2021, assuming the role of CTO. At Fracton Ventures, I spearhead development projects, forge strategic partnerships, and oversee research initiatives, all with the aim of shaping the future of blockchain technology.
