BLOCKSMITH&Co. Has Partnered with Tencent Cloud to Promote Web3 Services


BLOCKSMITH&Co. (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Tetsuya Sanada; hereinafter “BLOCKSMITH”) is pleased to announce that Tencent Cloud, the cloud business of Tencent, one of the world’s largest technology companies, has agreed to jointly promote efforts to expand the Web3 ecosystem, particularly in the development of services in the entertainment domain. By providing technical support such as SDK provision by Tencent Cloud and backing up BLOCKSMITH’s ongoing development and operation of the vertical short video quiz app “QAQA”, the two companies aim to make entertainment services using Web3 and blockchain technology more widespread among the general public.

BLOCKSMITH will utilise Tencent Cloud’s advanced technology to further improve the UX (user experience) of QAQA, a vertical short video quiz application.

First, the inclusion of Tencent Cloud’s User Generated Short Video (UGSV) SDK makes it easier for users to create and share their own quiz videos.

The adoption of the Tencent Cloud Video on Demand (VOD) solution will also enhance content generation and delivery on the QAQA platform. User-generated short videos will be efficiently managed and distributed through the VOD system.

These technological advances in the QAQA platform form the basis for a new trend in web3 entertainment services. With this innovative initiative, BLOCKSMITH and Tencent Cloud aim to provide a platform where users can be entertained and rewarded at the same time.

BLOCKSMITH & Co. Announces The Establishment of ‘BLOCKSMITH AI Lab’


BLOCKSMITH&Co., announces the establishment of the BLOCKSMITH AI Lab, which aims to make AI technology accessible to everyone.


Due to the remarkable evolution and high practicality of generative AI, the interest for the technology has rapidly spread to a wide audience. However, the discussion of generative AI technology has thus far been mostly focused on increasing business efficiency; i.e. cost reduction, and have garnered negative opinions such as fear of AI replacing jobs traditionally done by humans.

At BLOCKSMITH AI Lab, we aim to create opportunities to engage in AI technology by combining Web3 technology with Generative AI, and reduce negative misconception around the technology.

Plans to incorporate AI research

We are also planning to incorporate the results of BLOCKSMITH AI Lab’s research in our recently announced upcoming game service “Quiz to Earn ‘QAQA’”.
