This new project from the Otaku Coin Association will be the world’s first fusion of NFTs and the Metaverse!
What You Need to Know:
- This proof-of-concept experiment involves the sale and lottery gifting of NFTs based on the 3 Tohoku Sisters: Zunko, Itako, and Kiritan. Owners of these NFTs will have special access to watching previously unseen bonus footage through the ‘Metaverse Theater’ by using an entirely new and unique way to use NFTs!
- This project is a collaborative effort between four different groups: the Otaku Coin Association. SSS LLC. (owner of Tohoku Zunko), CryptoGames Inc. (blockchain developer), and BeyondConcept Inc. (owner of Conata).
- Details on how to enter the lottery starting today can be found in this article.
- Only those that own an NFT through first hand purchase or distribution will be able to access the Metaverse Theater. (Access is tentatively scheduled to be available until the end of June 2021).
- The purpose of this particular project is to create an NFT based on digital data inspired by anime, manga, games, VTubers, etc, while also finding a method to attach other features like priority pre-screenings, sequels, side stories, director/voice cast interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, music events, live streams, and other such content that owners can access after purchasing such an NFT. NFT owners will be able to view streams and other content that is only accessible in the Metaverse Theater, offering fans a richer and more unique digital experience.
- Otaku Coin Association continues to follow its mission of contributing to the preservation and growth of anime culture around the world using blockchain technology. By releasing the knowledge and experience gained from this experiment to the anime industry, creators, and fans on the Otaku Coin Official blog, we hope to support the development of the industry by creating more awareness of anime culture around the world.
- Beginning on April 22nd, 2021 at 10:00 (JST), these NFTs will be made available for purchase on the NFT marketplace, Rarible, and will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis. NFTs that include characters with the same pose, outfit, and expression will only be made once and have their own unique serial number. This will be the only chance you have to purchase these specific NFTs.
