Hong Kong, Dec 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Taiko NFT is pleased to announce that it will soon be releasing Non-Fungible Cat NEKO (NFC-NEKO), the very first collection of NFT mystery boxes featuring real-life celebrities Cats. The collection includes well-known cat names that have shaped internet and pop culture, including Grumpy Cat, Smudge Lord, Coffee, Coby the Cat, and Izzy and Zoë. The introduction of NFC-NEKO will take place on January 7, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. UTC on the Binance NFT Marketplace.
As part of the NFC NEKO, these celebrity cats are thrown into an act of donning robotic suits to defend their only true obsession – food – against ominous forces that have taken over their world. The cats must band together to fend off their common enemy and protect one another.
Aside from having great fun with the NFC NEKO collection, a portion of every purchase goes to a good cause. Half of all royalties and 5% of gross proceeds will be donated to five charities selected by the people who care for the cats featured in the collection to ensure that NFC NEKOs and their owners are doing good in the real world.
Each NFC NEKO is designed by Maxime Girault, a Paris and New York based digital artist who specializes in illustrations featuring adorable animals. The name of NFC-NEKO is inspired by Maneki-Neko, the Japanese “lucky cats” figures that are supposed to bring good luck to their owners, and is based on a style that Girault has adopted in his work.
A total of 27,200 Mystery Boxes will be released, each costing 28 BUSD, or approximately $ 28. They will be available in four rarity levels:
- normal NFC NEKOs contain five of the internet’s most famous cats in their unique mecha units. Each suit is tailor-made to represent its pilot and personality.
- Rarely NFC NEKOs embody classic designs with alternative shapes – Grumpy Cat Ancient Tree Version, Smudge Vegetal Ingested Mode, Coby Space Expedition, Coffee Porcelain Armor and Zoë Flourished Type. Each of them will have a unique solo adventure.
- Very rare Golden Mecha NFC-NEKOs merge into the Best Cats Neko and release collaborative power to protect the world. These include Smudge Red Force Joy, Coffee Blue Force Rider, Coby Double Charged Black Force, and Zoë Plastic Loaded Pink Force.
- Super super rare NFC-NEKO is the team commander, Grumpy Cat Eternal Green Force, who will lead the entire NFC-NEKO force to defend peace and prosperity.
