What is the difference between CryptoNinja and CryptoNinja Partners?

If you have recently purchased a CryptoNinja Partners NFT and joined the NinjaDAO community, you might be wondering what the difference between CryptoNinja and CryptoNinja Partners (CNP) is. In fact, you might be confused with a variety of projects using “CryptoNinja” names.

Although they both belong to the CryptoNinja family, they are two very different projects by nature.

In this article, you will learn the relationship between different CryptoNinja collections so that you have a better understanding of each project before making your next investment decision.

Are CryptoNinja and CryptoNinja Partners the same project?

To understand the relationship between the CryptoNina projects, let’s take a look at the diagram below:

The CryptoNinja Family

As you can see, all projects have derived from CryptoNinja, the main collection, and all the other projects have branched out from there.

For example, the CryptoNinja Partners (CNP) generative collection was created as fan art of CryptoNinja, and the CNP Jobs and Very Long CNP collections are currently being created as fan art of CNP.

In addition, a play-to-earn game, CryptoNinja Party, is currently being produced by the Japanese blockchain developer, HashPalette, and a Japanese animation studio, FanWorks, is creating an anime using the CryptoNinja characters.

CryptoNinja Business Model

The unique business model of CryptoNinja makes the above structure possible.

CryptoNinja is a royalty-free character business. They welcome fan art, and creators are allowed to monetize their work without paying any licensing fees to the CryptoNinja Collection.

CryptoNinja is a new type of Web3 character brand with a unique business model.
As a result, some Japanese companies have already shown interest in using these characters for their own products. It is expected that more commercial products and fan art collections will be produced in the future.

CryptoNinja Collections: points to remember

In summary

  • CryptoNinja, CryptoNinja Partners (CNP), and CNP Jobs are all separate projects.
  • The main brand is the “CryptoNinja” collection.
  • All other projects originate from the main collection – either as fan art produced within the NinjaDAO community or products created by Japanese companies
