Takahisa Karita Appointed as Strategic Advisor for the CROSSVALUE Chain



CROSSTECH DMCC (Headquartered in Dubai, UAE, Co-founder: Tokuro Uhara), developer of next generation blockchain cloud, CROSSVALUE Chain, is pleased to announce the appointment of Takahisa Karita, leader of UNIPLAT, an SDGs research and business support platform, as its new strategic advisor.

Background and Purpose of Appointment as Advisor

CROSSTECH is developing the CROSSVALUE Chain, a blockchain cloud combining a layer 1 blockchain with autonomous decentralized on-chain storage, with a focus on tokenization of real-world assets (RWAs). To expand the use of the cloud, we need to attract entrepreneurs and developers to deploy their businesses and applications. To this end, CROSSVALUE Chain has launched an accelerator program and aims to expand its ecosystem and enrich its participants through cooperation with Karita and with UNIPLAT.

With 28 years of entrepreneurial experience in education, IT, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and finance, Karita's extensive knowledge of the CROSSVALUE Chain is expected to facilitate its adoption by businesses outside of web3, where it is essential to collaborate with other business sectors. Karita currently serves on the Forbes Business Council and is a co-founder of Unify Platform AG, a Swiss company and operator of UNIPLAT. UNIPLAT supports entrepreneurs and researchers with members from 135 countries and has many resources to support and promote innovation. UNIPLAT will differentiate itself from other platforms by generating significant synergies with the CROSSVALUE Chain, hence the reasoning for this appointment.
