Cardano NFT mission: Kabuki Tokyo
Cardano NFT mission Kabuki Tokyo goals to create a stable mental property
Hey, welcome. Please introduce your staff, the place are you from, what are your backgrounds?

We’re thus composed of Japanese who’ve succeeded in Ethereum and who’ve a deep connection to Cardano and CNFT.
What’s Kabuki Tokyo? How are you using NFTs and why have you ever chosen Cardano?
Kabuki Tokyo is an anime NFT mission that goals to create a stable IP (Mental Property) with the robust worldwide group of Cardano, the Japanese NFT group, and a confirmed Japanese artist and manufacturing staff.
On the core of this IP are our 5 characters from utterly completely different backgrounds. Every of them was born in a distinct place, however ended up in Tokyo Roppongi, the place they’re bounty hunters as hackers referred to as Kabuki Mono. By changing into Kabuki Mono, they’re making an attempt to do what they suppose is true. They’re making an attempt to make a spot for themselves by pursuing justice, whereas cooperating with and deceiving one another.
We’ll present our NFT holders with governance to find out the content material of the mission and to take part in occasions. We will even onboard many Japanese artists sooner or later in order that our NFT holders can have entry to the work of Japanese artists who migrate to Cardano.

We selected Cardano due to its solidity, security, and good environmental efficiency. And in addition due to the group that Cardano has, an environment that’s inclusive of individuals of all races and that may develop in cooperation with different initiatives, which is strictly what we thought could be acceptable for creating IP by a world group.
How do Japanese folks view crypto and blockchain? How are you planning to carry extra Japanese NFT followers to Cardano?
In Japan, many individuals nonetheless view crypto and blockchain as one thing doubtful. Nonetheless, with the latest announcement that a big Japanese firm has determined to undertake Cardano’s Atala PRISM know-how to conduct a Japanese government-led DID demonstration, I imagine that individuals’s attitudes will regularly change.
NFT followers in Japan are rising, with many initiatives which have lately been minted coming within the prime 100 of OpenSea when it comes to each day buying and selling quantity. That is stunning contemplating that just about completely Japanese NFT initiatives in Japan are bought by nearly solely Japanese folks.
And thru this mission, we hope that many creators will even publish NFT on Cardano. We might additionally wish to accomplice with profitable Japanese initiatives in Ethereum and with different organizations and corporations in promotion and different actions to encourage them to enter the CNFT by means of our initiatives. So now we’re working to make large information in Japan by doing social actions with our companions and organizing occasions with our accomplice initiatives.
What excites you essentially the most about bringing NFT know-how into the manga and anime world? In what methods will this innovation contain the viewers and followers?
Our NFTs serves as a perform of governance. Till now, manga and anime have been created by a restricted variety of gifted folks and minds, reminiscent of editors and mangaka at publishing corporations. By utilizing the governance perform of NFTs, we are going to create a brand new type of worldwide IP that comes with the enter of many individuals’s brains and cultural backgrounds.

It’s particularly costly to provide animation. However with the brand new funding technique utilizing NFTs, and as our group grows, there might be many sponsors for the group. As group members get pleasure from every NFT assortment and community-driven IP improvement, it could be actually great if we may create one thing that the group may contemplate their very own anime by a confirmed Japanese anime firm.
