    FAQ

  • What is ChainZoku?

    The name ChainZoku stands for ‘Chain’, as in blockchain technology, and ‘Zoku’, which means ‘Tribe’ or ‘Family‘ in Japanese.

    ChainZoku will be a multimedia experience powered by NFTs on the Ethereum Blockchain.

    Launching with 6 months of quality-first content, the project will feature, among many other things:

    • High-quality 3D Zokus, with dozens of ways to customize them throughout season 1.
    • A groundbreaking customization interface, directly on our website, made by our team.
    • 24 mangas (6 months) coming out on a weekly basis. Hand-drawn by Nui Vagab, they will feature cover arts by different illustrators from all over the world
    • A wide and rich lore and storytelling, with events happening every single week, most of them with a direct, positive impact on the community and the Zokus themselves
    • A long-term, community-oriented vision with a team ready to keep delivering along the way
  • What is the roadmap for ChainZoku?

    We have imagined ChainZoku like a series, divided into multiple seasons. Season 1 will be starting on the day of the mint and last for 24 weeks (6 months). Season 2 will begin soon after. We will engage with our community of Zokus throughout the process in order to make sure our ambitions match those of our holders.

    Our intent is to turn ChainZoku into a company bridging the digital and physical worlds and develop into a fully-fledged brand & license.
  • What are the clans?

    In the world of ChainZoku, 2 separate clans live with opposite views of the world live together.

    The OniZoku are the clan of the earth and tradition. Through their embrace of the old shamanic ways, they have, over time, developed psychic abilities, and a peculiar range of physical traits. They cherish spirituality and tend to favor nature over anything else.

    The BosoZoku are a group of tech-savvy kids with a dream : building the society of the future. Digital souls always plugged into the Network, you can find them hanging out in noisy arcades and packed konbini stores.

    Being part of clan will mean that you will receive items specific to this one clan, you will be working together with you clanmates, and your destiny will depend on what happens to the members throughout the story.
  • Wen mint?

    We do not want to give an exact date at the moment as we have to make sure that everything is 100% ready before launch. But our goal is to be ready before the end of 2022.
  • Where can I follow for updates?

    ChainZoku will be mostly active on Twitter and Discord, but also on Instagram and YouTube.
  • What is the minting process and price?

    We are still exploring different options and we keep the community posted as soon as possible. We want to make sure to have a minting experience that is both fair and smooth.
  • What will be the secondary markets?

    After mint, the ChainZoku NFTs will be available on OpenSea and LooksRare, as well as other relevant platforms at the time.
  • How can I get a “WhiteList”?

    A quick note on "WhiteLists" : the current meta doesn't quite match our vision. We feel that it's more rewarding to hand out future perks to be used in the project than to give a "right to mint".

    But we are aware that it is expected by many and that it’s a token of appreciation for someone’s involvement, so we are not closed to the idea; we just think that it needs to be done intelligently, and the strategy is still being defined by the team at the moment.

    At the moment, the only “WhiteList” spots being given are through partnerships with other projects.

    Whatever happens we will recognize the people who are really interested in ChainZoku.
