Otaku Coin is a community currency targeted toward anime, manga, and video game culture, and is a currency with “voting rights” that attempts to directly reflect the needs of fans. We aim to use the currency as an intermediary to develop and revitalize the community and spread them around the world.

At the same time, we are confident that Otaku Coin is a project that will contribute to the further development of blockchains. As of now, the excitement of blockchain is for better or worse contained within its industry, and Otaku Coin aims to bring this excitement to global otaku culture. We believe that this project will hold significant value by becoming the world's first case where blockchains will be commonly used by the general public who previously had no interest in the system.
