Our virtual world project ¥u-Gi-¥n will be holding a “Tokyo culture collectible NFT exhibition” at T-LOTUS M (Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo) in partnership with “TNZ NFT DAO” — an organization supporting the NFT movement and its mass adoption in Japan.
As NFTs and Metaverses grow more popular, more and more people started paying attention to numerous web 3.0 projects presented in the space. It was not surprising that some of the most popular NFT projects were based on the art-styles and culture originating from Tokyo and Japan in general: anime, manga, Japanese music and fashion, etc.
However, there are very few NFT project that are really built by Japanese teams, and even less projects that came from original Japanese brands/IPs. It is interesting, because most of the mentioned above successful Tokyo-culture based projects are coming from the western teams, and they often plan to develop their own manga and anime IPs. Here is where ¥u-Gi-¥n comes into play.
¥u-Gi-¥n, being of the strongest Japanese players in the NFT field with strong backing in web 2.0, will offer a platform, opportunities for collaboration and help building connections between the existing Japanese brands and IPs and new, strong and fast-growing web 3.0 projects from all over the world.
To start implementing this idea into reality, ¥u-Gi-¥n is organizing a great art exhibition and inviting some of the most popular overseas NFT projects that are inspired by Tokyo culture! This exhibition will be an amazing opportunity not only to build strong bonds and relationships with other teams who are moving web 3.0 space forward, but also an amazing experience for our guests, who will be able to emerge into the culture of Tokyo and Japan.
