Otaku Coin AnimeLoot

One of the first and biggest projects that attempted to combine cryptocurrency with anime was Otaku Coin. Dubbed “an experimental bottom-up anime project,” Otaku Coin’s goal is to enable its entire community of fans to come together and create a new Isekai anime. The community can create their own characters and illustrations, and describe characteristics and worldviews under four primary categories – species, sex, heritage and personality.

Launched in 2018, Otaku Coin is an ERC20 token that allows fans to vote or fund projects, eliminating foreign currency conversion fees and implementing a reward system for activities related to the project.

0N1 Force The OG Anime NFT

Launched in 2021, ON1 Force is an anime-inspired NFT project that screams vibrancy. Each avatar has unique traits, including masks, headphones, hairstyles, and more. The NFT collection comprises 7777 generative side-profile, lo-fi style characters with 100 hand-drawn attributes created by IMCMPLX. They embody style, strength, and spirit – the three ‘powers’ needed to survive the 0N1 Force universe – the Ethereal Enclave.

The narrative centers around this universe, portrayed as a peaceful kingdom that grants eternal life. However, chaos ensues when the Emperor dies. As a result, the 0N1 Force has only 7,777 hours left and needs to fight for survival.

Around the time of launch, 0N1 Force was a global sensation. Many of the world’s most popular celebrities and influencers bought into the 0N1 Force NFT project, most famously Logan Paul, who spent over 180 ETH on a legendary Bumblebee NFT.
