Astar Network, a frontrunner in the Japanese web3 ecosystem, announces an NFT campaign for the mainnet release of Ethereum Layer 2 “Astar zkEVM Powered by Polygon''. This presents unique collaboration opportunities for like-minded projects and companies.
The campaign celebrates the release of Astar zkEVM mainnet, scheduled in Q1 2024. It will spotlight the Astar zkEVM ecosystem, enabling users to explore onboarded projects by completing various on-chain and off-chain quests. Once completed, users will be rewarded with access to exclusive NFTs prepared by Astar Network and participating projects. These projects range from enterprises, popular IP artists, and top web3 applications.
Astar Network’s Japanese roots, with its rich culture and traditions, will be seen and felt throughout the campaign. The campaign draws inspiration from the highly popular Japanese capsule machines and the mechanism of attaining random prizes in sphere-shaped capsules. Users will be presented with virtual versions, each customized individually for participating projects, and presented on the dedicated campaign website. Users can interact with each project machine to mint and collect limited NFTs, all while partaking in an immersive storyline that draws from Japanese folklore, further adding an engaging element to the experience. This includes the NFT collection of Japanese-inspired characters that Astar Network is preparing. Those characters can be "upgraded" by users further engaging with the campaign and completing requirements, including the collection of NFTs produced by the projects.
