■About Cocone Corporation
Cocone provides a number of social network-based digital content, including “Pokecolo,” a character dress-up application for smartphones supported by more than 20 million customers, “Pokecolo Twin,” a sister application to “Pokecolo,” and “Livley Island,” which was released in July 2021 and has become a huge hit.
Cocone’s services are mainly “decorating social services” and “games with decorating elements,” services that have “characters,” “coordinating” elements, and customers can “play”. At Cocone, we have pioneered this genre, which we define as “CCP (Character Coordinating Play).
In 2021, we will globally release “Cobalt,” an NFT marketplace based on blockchain technology that allows many creators and buyers to participate, guaranteeing the value of popular digital items and contributing to further economic expansion in the online world in the future. In addition, based on the existing CCP service, we are challenging to build a digital world and metaverse space that can give shape to “sensibility”, which is Cocone’s forte, rather than convenience and functionality.
In April 2017, we opened ” International Montessori Mirai Kindergarten, “a preschool operated by our subsidiary Cocone Education Corporation, offering a future-oriented education with bilingualism, Montessori, and computer science at its core, and in 2019, we acquired the well-established online gaming portal ” Hange ” as a subsidiary.
In 2021, Cocone Connect Corporation will be established to further develop CCP services, operating the “Noen Konkatsu(Marriage Hunting in the Farm)” series and the “Selfy” series, and Cocone Fashion Corporation will pre-launch “choiceis,” an EC service oriented toward a new way of selling fashion as an IT company. We aim to build a new digital world by combining our experience in avatar development and community management, language education, and technologies such as blockchain and NFT.
