Hey there! This is the director of Kanazawa here. Sit tight because I’ve got some stories to tell and exciting updates to share.
Let’s kick it off with a stroll down memory lane. When Kanazawa was just an idea, it had the warm backing of some of my closest friends. We all shared a singular vision: to craft an exclusive series of art in the form of traditional NFTs. These weren’t just any NFTs. They were inspired by book illustrations – a throwback to classic art with a digital twist. Today, I’m proud to say that this collection remains the heart and soul of our brand. It’s more than just our mainstay; it’s our signature identity.
On our journey, we stirred up a vibrant storm in the world of NFTs with the launch of our “pop” collection on the Polygon blockchain. And here’s the fun twist: this wasn’t about profits. This was about people. About the community. The “pop” collection is more than just digital art; it’s an emblem of our dedication to nurturing and expanding our community. It’s entirely self-sustaining, managed by the community, and its beauty lies in the passion of the collectors who promote it. A real testimony to the power of collective effort!
Speaking of effort, all the experiences, the hits, the misses, the learnings from these two collections have paved our path forward. As we look to the horizon, the roadmap for Kanazawa’s future is glittering with promise. The community currently sails under the able captaincy of “collab” @KathyWolfETH, who’s been with us since the very inception of our book’s prologue. Her leadership has been invaluable. But, as we grow, we’re open to bringing new “community collabs” on board to keep the Kanazawa spirit alive and kicking.
Hold onto your hats, because November is going to be a whirlwind! We’re launching our first “major NFT collection” – “Eryndor”. And the cherry on the cake? The debut of the “ERC-20 $KANA token” on Ethereum. This token is going to be the golden thread that weaves together all our collections: Kanazawa, Kanazawa Pop, and Eryndor. But it’s not just an average ERC-20; it’ll have its own unique features that set it apart.
In a nutshell, we’re gearing up for three transformative shifts: bolstering community management, introducing Eryndor, and rolling out $KANA. These are not just milestones; they’re giant leaps propelling us deeper into the web3 world. And all this action kicks off in mid-November 2023. It marks the end of our ecosystem implementation phase and paves the way for amplified marketing efforts – not limited to a single collection, but our entire ecosystem.
But hey, we’re not done yet! After these massive leaps, we’ll be integrating new projects into our ecosystem, pushing our boundaries, and exploring uncharted territories.
So, here’s to the past, present, and a future brimming with possibilities. Thank you for being on this incredible journey with us!
