Fans benefiting economically from their attention and support. Thanks to web 3.0 technologies we can build that future. Our beachhead is anime, a $20B global industry based on the art and craft of Japanese animators. We use cryptography and blockchain to secure authenticity and ownership of collectible merchandise.
Run by ex-head of anime at Netflix, leading industry producers and p2p tech experts we‘re looking for bold team members to join us on our journey. We have a fun office at WeWork Labs Singapore where we regularly play ping-pong and drink free coffee in a culture of excellence and freedom.
