Kaiju Kingz: Japanese monster culture ruled by the DAO

Huge pixel animals constantly show up at the top of NFT collections. In the fall of 2021, the Kaiju Kingz collection burst onto the PFP pedestal. The word “Kaiju” in Japanese culture refers to fictional giant monsters such as Godzilla and the like. The Kaiju Kingz collection depicts stylized creatures and characters in the genre. The collection is based on the Ethereum blockchain and has video game integration and interesting perspectives.

What is Kaiju Kingz?

Kaiju Kingz is a collection of 9,999 NFTs of ERC-721 standart based on the Ethereum blockchain.

The collection is a set of digital artwork featuring Kaiju creatures inspired by Japanese movies and comic books about giant monsters. That said, the project is not just about beautiful stylized PFP-images. The project has its own mechanics, legend, and ecosystem at its core.

And here are just a few facts and features:

  • Each Kaiju generates so-called radioactive waste, which can be used to create Baby Kaijuz. It is these that have expanded the collection to 9,999 NFTs. Two Kaiju from the original 3,333 were needed to create them, along with the accumulated radioactive waste. The Baby Kaijuz do not inherit the external traits of the two “parents”, their traits are determined randomly, that is, they mutate.
  • The $RWASTE token serves as radioactive waste. We will talk about it in detail in the Project Ecosystem.
  • A stress test of the Sorashima city game in Kaijuz’s interactive world has recently been unveiled. Details of the Sorashima city game have not yet been revealed to the public, but it is a step toward gamification of the project.

 

Kaiju Kingz in numbers

  • The collection was released on October 13, 2021. Initially 3,333 Kaiju were issued, and further NFTs were distributed through the crossing of the two Kaiju.
  • The cost of minting was 0.006 ETH.
  • The project is ranked 59th among the best collections in terms of sales of all time on the largest NFT marketplace OpenSea.
  • The total volume of secondary sales exceeded 32k ETH (more than $52 million at the current exchange rate).
  • Floor price is 0.2 ETH (about $320).
  • Average sales range from 0.2 ETH to 1.3 ETH.
  • The most expensive #0 was sold on October 18, 2021 for 50 ETH ($187k at the time of sale).
  • A total of 3,365 unique holders (34%). Among the big whales, wallet #27192B owns 38.76% of the entire collection. This is an ambiguous indicator that may demonstrate control and management of the project from within by a particular beneficiary.
  • Only about 2% of the collection (232 pieces out of 9,999) are for sale, among them the offers range from 0.2 ETH to 4 ETH. This shows that almost all holders see the project as a great investment prospect and are not in a hurry to part with their assets at a lower price.

Kaiju Kingz Idea

The idea behind the project is to create a unique universe of digital art and characters inspired by the Kaiju (Japanese for “strange creature”) genre. This word is usually used to refer to giant monsters like Godzilla. The Kaiju Kingz NFT collection aims to capture the essence of the genre by creating a series of collectible digital monsters and characters. Thanks to this, fans can own and trade in their favorite characters.

Moreover, Kaiju King aims for a community that is integrated through Web 3.0 technology. A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) was created specifically for this purpose, through which active community members are rewarded and the project is developed.

 

Why is Kaiju Kingz popular?

The project is very popular. Of course, there are reasons for this:

  • The project team includes professionals in the field of programming and Web 3.0. technology which has been developing at a tremendous pace in the last three years. In the project, this technology is implemented for better interaction with metaverses, as well as with DAO and the community as a whole.
  • Kaiju King DAO, membership in which is granted to Kaiju NFT owners. On the Discord server they also have access to an exclusive #Alpha channel. The community itself chooses the development path in Web 3.0. and that of the project, and active participants receive a reward in the form of $RWASTE utility tokens.
  • The cult of Kaiju in Japan, a strange creature that destroys everything in its path. Kaiju is somewhat reminiscent of Godzilla, the monster from Hollywood movies, who is also the destroyer of everything built by man.

 

Kaiju Kingz Roadmap

The project roadmap is presented in 4 phases.

Phase 1:

  • Completing the distribution of Kaiju Kingz.
  • The creation of the Kaiju Kingz DAO. Royalties from secondary market sales go to the DAO treasury. The treasury is also replenished when additional collections are launched.
  • Launching events for community activity. The events are aimed entirely at the community and the project. Incoming newbies or already first owners of Kaiju Kingz NFT contribute to the development of the project and its exposure to the crypto community. The top 20 people will each receive one Senpai Kaijuz NFT as a reward.

Phase 2:

  • Launching 3D models of VX Kaijuz which can be used as a personal avatar in various spaces of the metaverse.

Phase 3:

  • The DAO is starting to use the community repository for grants for young developers and crypto enthusiasts who are moving forward in Web 3.0 technology.

Phase 4:

  • As the DAO develops, the ecosystem and new KaijuKingz products will be developed that focus on interacting with metaverses, Web 3.0, and implementing bonus programs for NFT owners of the project.

The Baby Kaijuz NFT Collection

Baby Kaijuz are the “cubs” of Kaiju Kingz. It was Baby Kaijuz that expanded the collection from 3,333 to 9,999 items by crossing the original tokens and creating new ones. It took two Kaijuz and 750 $RWASTE tokens to create a Baby. That said, Baby did not inherit the traits of the parents. They were determined at random, and it was impossible to predict what traits Baby Kaijuz would have. There are a total of 6,666 of them.

Should you invest in Kaiju Kingz?

There are several factors that make it possible to treat the project positively and start investing in it:

  • The project is managed by the DAO, which sets the path for project development in the NFT space and Web 3.0 technology. In addition, the Kaiju Kingz DAO helps aspiring Web 3.0 developers.
  • A rather optimistic floor price of 0.2 ETH is a good enough entry threshold. It is also an important fact that it exceeds the minting price of the collection;
  • The application of NFTs in an evolving interactive world that will only expand.
  • The $RWASTE token will be earned for owning an NFT. Each day each Kaiju Kings NFT accumulates 5 $RWASTE. This is needed to participate in the DAO voting, as well as to change the name or legend of Kaiju.
