What is CryptoNinja NFT?

CryptoNinja is an NFT collection, released in September 2021.

What makes CryptoNinja unique is its royalty-free licensing model, which allows creators to use the characters and earn without paying any fees for the CryptoNinja IP. This model has attracted many creators to its community, NinjaDAO, which has quickly grown to become the most active NFT community in Japan.

Thanks to the enthusiastic and loyal community members, CryptoNinja managed to raise enough funds in a short period of time to create the CryptoNinja Sakuya anime series.

Sakuya Generative’s Vision

Ikehaya’s vision is to make CryptoNinja into a global IP character.

“CryptoNinja is a web3 IP character that’s free for everyone in the world to use,” said Ikehaya. CryptoNinja Sakuya Anime plays a key role in raising the profile of the CryptoNinja IP both in Japan and globally.”

The money raised from the initial sales of Sakuya Generative and its future royalties will be used to create more anime series.

“Building an IP business is a gradual process, but CryptoNinja’s fan base is steadily growing. We hope that our supporters will become owners of this new collection so that we can continue this exciting challenge together,” Ikehaya said.
