Arai has initiated his interest in blockchain since 2013, during which this technology was fresh and to know people who develop a system using blockchain is impossible. Arai has been creating products and solutions for the companies he involved by using blockchain technology.
Arai also believes that blockchain has the potential to substitute the conventional database system that has been used all this while. It is a revolution in the financial industry. The emergence of blockchain is just like the internet. When the internet is initially introduced in the 1990s, people responded negatively. Back then, most of them could not accept the internet. But now, people cannot live without the internet. Blockchain is a phenomenon which is bigger than the internet. The internet is all about information, while blockchain is about assets and assets are what really make the world evolve. Blockchain is a tamper-proof, distributed electronic ledger that exists across a decentralized network.
To continue spreading his knowledge and interest in blockchain, Arai currently started another of his own company in Sabah named Blockchains Inc.
