>We have developed a vision for the “Otaku Coin” (based on the ERC20 Standard), a new type of cryptocurrency that will circulate throughout the Japanese content industry in the fields of anime, manga, games, and other content that Japan boasts to the rest of the world. At the moment, we are working toward the possibility of launching our ICO (Initial Coin Offering where a new cryptocurrency is provided) in summer 2018.
>Utilizing blockchain technology, a new mechanism for democratization, the Otaku Coin could be used to connect fans of the anime industry with creators and relevant organizations in a smart and direct way. The Otaku Coin aims to become the currency of Japanese pop culture, facilitating an ecosystem where fans can more easily help preserve the culture they love.
>The main party behind this initiative is the Otaku Coin Preparation Committee consisting of Tokto Otaku Mode (TOM), as well as advisors and partners. While the co-founder and current CEO of TOM will establish the initial framework of the Otaku Coin project, we hypothesize that this initiative will change and develop into a project with decentralized power that matches the fundamentals of blockchain technology.
>We have opened this page to introduce Otaku Coin and gather feedback from fans around the world, members of the Japanese content industry, and other relevant organizations to further improve our project. We would greatly appreciate your honest opinions. We are also currently looking for advisers and partners.
