DMTP is the Web3 communication and marketing protocol . You can send and receive messages based on your wallet address. The messages are E2EE (End-to-End Encryption) and en / decrypted with your public/private keys so that no others, including DMTP, can see them. In Web3, all identities are transferred to the wallet address. In such a situation, there still needs to be an easy-to-use method of communication with the wallet address. We would like to solve this and build a world complete with Web3 identities.

Prior work and team experience:
Aru : Co-founder, CEO Interned at a crypto VC while studying in New York. While conducting due diligence, investment ratios, and research for portfolio projects, he also supported managing a blog dedicated to blockchain. After returning to Japan, he interned at Hokusai, an NFT infrastructure development company, as a member of the board of directors and in public relations, and launched DMTP. Kosuke : Co-founder Started four companies, including BigData, Adtech, and D2C. 2007 Consulting for “SecondLife” of Metaverse for major companies at Meltingdots. 2015 Co-founded a project with Mr. CZ (now Binance Founder) to launch a cryptocurrency exchange in Japan. 2017 Invested in several ICO projects. 2019 Developed a cloud-based automated trading system for cryptocurrencies. 2021 Launched "DiscoverFeed”; an NFT marketplace for selling one of the component processes of the world’s top DJ. Yuzu : CTO Worked at a blockchain consulting firm in Japan. Implementing blockchain technology for major companies and developing NFT issuance tools and NFT cross-chain bridges. Personally participated in the ETH Global hackathon and won multiple prizes. In November of 2022, he became the CTO of DMTP.
Project Goals and Differentiating Factors:
The goal of the DMTP is to bring Web3 to every person. We believe in the potential of Web3 and are convinced that it will make a significant difference in the world’s environment.
However, Web3 is a hurdle for new users, and this is a major problem for mass adoption of Web3.
To overcome this hurdle, each project must create an environment that is user onboarding and user responsive.Of course, communication among users is also essential for mass adoption.
Therefore, DMTP contributes to mass adoption by building an infrastructure for Web3 communication.
We feel the same way about Web3 for billions.
DMTP has a large CRM component. For example, game-related projects can send targeted onboarding messages to users who are leaving the project, send simultaneous messages to people who have acquired tokens through GameFi in the past, send DeFi collateral liquidation notifications in advance, analyze users in a similar way to LINE@, etc. It can also be used for user analysis, etc. in the form of LINE@.
It is possible to support all chains, so that a person using an ETH chain can send a message to a person using a Solana chain.
There are projects for the analysis function and projects for the message function, respectively, but user onboarding is not possible unless everything from analysis to sending messages can be done in one place. Only DMTP can do this on a high level now.
Development Roadmap and Project Sustainability:
In 2023, we will provide the following features:
- Mobile App Provision
- Analytics Functionality Provision
- User Counting
- Transaction Analysis
- CRM Functionality Provision
- Official Account Functionality Provision
At the beginning of 2024, we will provide the following features:
- Push Notification Rewards
- Detailed Analysis Functionality for Each Message
- Time Series Analysis with Graphs and Charts
- Inflow Path Analysis
Furthermore, we are planning a $DMTP launch, IDO/IEO in mid-2024, and users will be able to earn Rewards in full-scale.
In 2023, the CRM functionality will be provided on a closed basis to partner projects. Based on the feedback received from each project, we will create a longer-term roadmap and decide on it at the beginning of 2024.
DMTP will release Tokens over a span of 5 years.
We will strive to increase users to create a network effect within these 5 years, and at the stage when all the Tokens are released, we will be able to provide continuous incentives to users from the sales portion without releasing from DMTP.
The reward for Tokens is based on users opening messages and receiving notifications, motivating projects to send messages.
Moreover, not only regarding Tokens but also as DMTP, we will eventually establish a system that continuously runs the community by increasing contributors, not just the core team.
- Milestone 1: Mobile app (Estimated Duration: 60 days)
Users will be able to utilize wallet address-based chat in the mobile app. Additionally, there are plans to implement a Token Rewards feature in this app in the future, which will lead to an increase in message open rates through rewards for opening messages, and an increase in real-time notification recipients by granting tokens for turning on notifications. This is an essential factor for DMTP-utilizing projects to ensure they reach users. It achieves a level of intimate communication with users that cannot be realized in current platforms like Discord.
- Milestone 2: First CRM function (Estimated Duration: 60 days)
The development of the mobile app and the CRM features will be carried out concurrently. With the implementation of the CRM functionality, Web3 projects using DMTP can easily analyze the users they are handling and send messages suitable for each user based on that analysis. Currently, Web3 presents many high barriers for new users. However, by effectively utilizing the features of DMTP, it is possible to automatically onboard each user individually, such as with guidance on how to play games or purchase tokens, ensuring that no one is left behind. Specifically, there are features such as step messaging functionality that automatically sends messages in stages based on set timings, and targeting messages that only send messages to users who own specific NFTs or have performed certain actions.
- Milestone 3: First SDK Development (Estimated Duration: 30 days)
With the development of the SDK, it becomes possible to perform analysis that combines both off-chain and on-chain data, and to send messages to all users who are using one’s project. Until the SDK is developed, Web3 projects can send messages by having users add the official account created by the project as a friend. However, by introducing the SDK, it recognizes all users participating in the project as friends, allowing messages to be sent to them.
Furthermore, by adding code to measure specific event counts when introducing the SDK, that action will be reflected in the Analytics screen. This enables off-chain analysis as well, allowing for more suitable onboarding and communication with users. For example, it would be possible to send messages for the next step only to those who have cleared a game’s tutorial.
We want to request 2M.
We will contribute to increasing the number of active users not only as 1dApps, but also as a protocol to provide this functionality to the entire ecosystem.
We need a great deal of resources to provide a good UX to our users/projects in a speedy manner and with a good UX.
This amount will certainly improve our development, the user experience, and will activate Astar as a whole.
Ecosystem Engagement and Alignment:
We believe that DMTP is highly compatible with Astar.
For example, dAppstaking v3 will burn the token if the claim is not made within a certain period of time. It might be not beneficial for staking users to have the token burned before they are aware of it. DMTP can be used to send a message to the user to prompt a claim, counting down from the time when the token will be burned.
Also, by sending a message to $ASTR holders to vote on governance, we can significantly increase the number of votes.
Astar also has the excellent technical advantage of supporting EVM and WASM, which, on the other hand, can be a hurdle for less knowledgeable users.
With DMTP, it is possible to automatically send messages tailored to each user’s situation, and the proper onboarding of all users is not just a dream.
Of course, similar functions are available to dApp developers as well as protocols, resulting in more users who continue to use the service. This will lead to an increase in the number of users and the overall activation of Astar!
How we heard about the Unstoppable Grants Program:
I was introduced to this program by Tatsu, Ramz, and Cody from the Astar team.
We have been selected for Chainlink’s BUILD program, and future collaboration has been determined. Additionally, we have obtained a Grant from Unstoppable Domains and announced a partnership with NTT Digital, laying the groundwork to expand our project. Together, let’s expand Web3 to the world and aim for mass adoption!!!
