The movements being recorded on ASTR are not without a strong basis as the protocol has shown it is making serious advancements in its ecosystem. The earlier-inked partnership with Sony is yielding positive results as the parachain noted that it is seeing a growing number of sign-ups to its incubation program.

Of all the parachain networks resident on Polkadot, Astar is known to have very robust and innovative products and solutions that are notably interspersed with solid collaborations. One of the most acclaimed of these collaborations is that with the Japanese railway operator, which launched its non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on its protocol.
