NinjaDAO is often the first community that people encounter when they start looking at the Japanese NFT market. It is the most vibrant NFT community in Japan with a strong reputation. However, some newcomers may be overwhelmed by the size and pace of the community and not know where to begin.
What is NinjaDAO?
It is a creator-first community with the goal of sharing and growing a Web3-style character IP, CryptoNinja.
Ikehaya is an NFT and web marketing influencer with a total of over 500,000 social media followers. He is considered the most influential marketer in the Japanese NFT space, and his Twitter spaces can get over 1,000 listeners at a time, depending on the time and topic.
To raise CryptoNinja’s profile, Ikehaya attracted many creators to join the community by making the character royalty-free.
“CryptoNinja has a super-permissive licensing model and I encourage my community members to create CryptoNinja fan art and earn money with it, ” Ikehaya said in a recent interview.
Ikehaya believes that Japanese creators are often exploited by corporations, preventing them from reaching their full potential. “I wanted to change that and decided to make NinjaDAO a creator-first community. By providing royalty-free characters, I knew I could build a unique community where many artists could freely start their own projects using CryptoNinja.”
Ikehaya’s clear and unique vision began to attract many creators, and the community started to grow rapidly. Currently, there are over twenty fan art projects established within the DAO.
Having many ongoing projects is what makes NinjaDAO so vibrant and a fun place to be.

Projects within NinjaDAO
When you enter NinjaDAO, you will see hundreds of channels with members actively participating in each one. Many of the channels have been opened by creators starting their own projects, such as generative NFT collections, games, and metaverse events.
The most successful project created within NinjaDAO is the CryptoNinja Partners (CNP) generative collection. The project was founded by one of NinjaDAO’s early participants, Road, and the team was formed with DAO members.
CNP is fan art of CryptoNinja, as it features ninja subcharacters such as Orochi and Leelee.
Under Road’s leadership supported by talented and enthusiastic DAO members, CNP has become the most sought after profile picture (PFP) collection in Japan. CNP also has a similar licensing structure to CryptoNinja, so many of CNP’s fan art projects have been created in NinjaDAO, attracting more members to the community.
“CryptoNinja’s super permissive licensing model allows great projects like CNP to get started within NinjaDAO,” said Ikehaya. “I think it is essential for a DAO community to have valuable assets available to its members. CryptoNinja IP is our asset that members can use and make money with, and now CNP has become our asset as well, adding even more value to our community.”
NinjaDAO is one of those rare communities that continues to grow and offer new experiences and connections to its members.
CryptoNinja Nouns (CNN) is a project that aims to provide a “community wallet” for NinjaDAO. CNN was created using a fork of the Nouns DAO system so that every 24 hours a CNN is auctioned and the proceeds are automatically sent to the treasury.
The money in the CNN treasury will be used for projects by NinjaDAO members. “I like to think of our treasury as everyone’s wallet or piggy bank,” said Ikehaya.
“Although we have many talented creators in NinjaDAO who would like to use CryptoNinja characters for their own projects, they are often unable to proceed due to lack of funding. But CNN can provide a solution to the problem and enable our members to take the leap by providing sufficient funding.”
One month after CNN’s first auction, the treasury has already received over 155 ETH.
