What is an Aswang? A Tibsukan? A Calanget? A Mangagaway? A Hukluban? Admittedly, these are words that are seldom talked about nowadays. These are actually names of the Filipino mythological beings that our ancestors made stories of legends and folklore about.
What is Aswang Tribe?
“Aswang” is the Founding Artist of the Aswang Tribe, who has generated the art from their personal collection which was inspired by the Philippine Mythological creatures like the Tikbalang, Manananggal, Siyokoy, and Duwende. The NFT project aims to educate the Filipino communities of our traditional folklore which—what was once looked over and forgotten, is now being immortalized through NFT art.
Aswang Collection’s Opensea has reached more than 140 ETH in trading volume and the floor price, as of writing, is at 3.5 ETH (April 20, 2022.) Alongside the promotional teaser its team released, the NFT project rapidly sold out.
The project has also given some of the community members tickets to secure their slot for the tribe.
There was also an event held for community members to share their talents through singing in their voice channel. The event was entitled ‘Aswang Got Talent’.
