Let's Build!

A culturally-driven community where passionate stakeholders in the crypto, gaming and anime industries leverage the innovations of blockchain technologies to pioneer new revenue models and financing opportunities.

Anime is more popular today than ever before but this rapid growth in demand has inadvertently led studios to overwork their creative teams without financial incentives for their extra hard work and sacrifice. If this continues, the only legacy that will be left for future anime artists is burnout.

What We Do

We're building an ecosystem where innovative digital assets are designed and created to sponsor the next generation of anime/manga-inspired artists and works.

A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) in the making representing a historic moment where crypto investors, NFT collectors can partner with creators and form communities to finance and develop digital assets that unlock new sources of revenue while creating new ways to reward the artists for their skills, hard work, and creations.
