Kūsho World, a Filipino-made and the first anime-inspired non-fungible token (NFT) collection, announced that it is set to launch and will start minting this upcoming March 18th. The project aims to make “great waves in promoting Filipino artistry and enriching the local community about the boundless potential of NFTs.”
Before the actual mint date, the developers of the project are conducting events for the community, fulfilling their mission to be “a platform for Filipino artists and Metaverse enthusiasts to share their passions and vitalize the arts and crypto.”
“The biggest utility is Kūsho being a platform in itself. Gusto namin na yung Kūsho ay vina-vitalize ang community, and vice versa.” — Yuann Acosta, Kūsho Founder
Kūsho founders, Yuann Acosta, Sachie Santiago, and Dexter Magaro, said in a statement that they think that in the “grand scheme of things, Filipino artists’ efforts and expressions are ‘undervalued’ so through NFTs, they believe that creators and consumers will garner high satisfaction from their transactions.”
“The creators of Kūsho are also firm on bringing NFT education to the local community; Kusho offers podcasts, webinars, and community discussions to give the community a headstart on their arts and Metaverse journey. “ – Kūsho
The project is currently in its first phase: accumulating community engagement, securing partnerships, and giving gradual previews of the actual minting platform.
Moreover, following the launch and its second phase, the creators added that the community could look forward to the debut of Kūsho Verse: Army of Artists, a selection of artists within the community who will be behind Kūsho’s next collections. (Read More: Beginners Guide to NFT)
