Last week’s visitor was a venture that is building essentially the most epic fantasy universe to experience our love for fantasy and share meaningful experiences.
This initiative is a point of reference for NFTs on Cardano and each week or two we’ll invite somebody to answer some questions and give us an update immediately from inside the Cardano neighborhood.
Considering that a lot of our readers are new to the crypto space, we could have a combination of simple and technical questions.
Cardano NFT challenge: Kabuki Tokyo
Cardano NFT challenge Kabuki Tokyo goals to create a stable intellectual property
Hey, welcome. Please introduce your team, the place are you from, what are your backgrounds?
The staff consists of just about all members from Japan. I am Yuri and I’m a CNFT enthusiast and an energetic member of the Japan Cardano Community. I truly have been a producer of Pokémon events, and our CTO Hayatti is doubtless considered one of the well-known NFT influencers in Japan.
Shima Enaga is our creator and has been a personality designer of Konami Digital Entertainment and she or he is a successful artist in the Ethereum house. ADA NinjaZ is helping us market our project to the West.
We are thus composed of Japanese who have succeeded in Ethereum and who’ve a deep connection to Cardano and CNFT.
What is Kabuki Tokyo? How are you utilizing NFTs and why have you ever chosen Cardano?
Kabuki Tokyo is an anime NFT project that aims to create a stable IP (Intellectual Property) with the sturdy international neighborhood of Cardano, the Japanese NFT neighborhood, and a proven Japanese artist and production staff.
At the core of this IP are our five characters from utterly different backgrounds. Each of them was born in a special place, however ended up in Tokyo Roppongi, where they are bounty hunters as hackers known as Kabuki Mono. By turning into Kabuki Mono, they are making an attempt to do what they think is right. They try to make a spot for themselves by pursuing justice, whereas cooperating with and deceiving each other.
We will present our NFT holders with governance to find out the content material of the challenge and to participate in occasions. We may even onboard many Japanese artists sooner or later in order that our NFT holders will have entry to the work of Japanese artists who migrate to Cardano.

We chose Cardano because of its solidity, security, and good environmental performance. And additionally because of the group that Cardano has, an environment that is inclusive of individuals of all races and that may develop in cooperation with different projects, which is strictly what we thought can be appropriate for creating IP by an international community.
How do Japanese people view crypto and blockchain? How are you planning to deliver extra Japanese NFT followers to Cardano?
In Japan, many people still view crypto and blockchain as something dubious. However, with the recent announcement that a big Japanese firm has decided to adopt Cardano’s Atala PRISM expertise to conduct a Japanese government-led DID demonstration, I believe that people’s attitudes will steadily change.
NFT fans in Japan are growing, with many tasks that have recently been minted coming within the top 100 of OpenSea in terms of day by day buying and selling quantity. This is shocking contemplating that nearly exclusively Japanese NFT tasks in Japan are purchased by nearly solely Japanese people.
And through this challenge, we hope that many creators may even publish NFT on Cardano. We would additionally like to companion with successful Japanese initiatives in Ethereum and with different organizations and companies in promotion and other actions to encourage them to enter the CNFT through our tasks. So now we’re working to make huge information in Japan by doing social actions with our partners and organizing occasions with our companion initiatives.
What excites you the most about bringing NFT know-how into the manga and anime world? In what ways will this innovation contain the viewers and fans?
Our NFTs serves as a operate of governance. Until now, manga and anime have been created by a limited variety of proficient people and minds, such as editors and mangaka at publishing companies. By utilizing the governance perform of NFTs, we’ll create a brand new form of international IP that comes with the enter of many people’s brains and cultural backgrounds.

It is particularly costly to provide animation. But with the new funding methodology using NFTs, and as our community grows, there shall be many sponsors for the community. As community members enjoy every NFT collection and community-driven IP improvement, it will be really wonderful if we might create something that the neighborhood may contemplate their own anime by a proven Japanese anime company.
Great contribution. Any ultimate thoughts? Where can people keep in touch?
We are very much trying forward to working with the great members of the CNFT group to unfold the phrase about CNFT and our venture in Japan, and to create a global IP with you through this challenge.
