When you hear this question, what is the answer that comes to mind?
Through using newly created blockchain technology, it is now possible for fans and creators to join hands in creating anime.
New stories drawn by creators who are directly supported by fans around the world ―It is the mission of the Otaku Coin Association to create this system.
The codename for this project is “AnimeF” (tentative).
Yes, anime is created through your support, and anime belongs to all fans including you.
The Otaku Coin Association has joined forces with studios to begin new initiatives to contribute to the industry
The Otaku Coin Association collects passionate messages of support from fans and uses them to create posters and booklets that are delivered directly to anime studios.
Joining forces with Tudukimi which aims to eliminate “zero wa giri” (fans giving up on new anime before even watching the first episode), users can acquire Otaku Coins simply by watching anime trailers on the app and sharing them on Twitter.
Fans around the world become translators and translate articles from the Japanese anime news site Anime!Anime!. The translated articles are published along with the translator’s name to Anime Anime Global. As compensation, translators are granted the original token HON, which will be exchangeable for Otaku Coin.
The Anime Anime Global mobile app will feature a lineup of articles translated from Tokyo Honyaku Quest. Users can get Otaku Coins by reading the articles and sharing them on Twitter.
Various other projects are also being considered and developed. Please look forward to more initiatives from the Otaku Coin Associations.
With the goal of issuing the community currency Otaku Coin, the Otaku Coin Association uses blockchain technology and carries out sound development and management of Otaku Coin, branding activities, and related projects.
