Kishimoto Inu – An Ode to the Great Mangaka

What’s more fitting of an honor to an anime artist than to create a cryptocurrency in his name.  

 Enter Masashi Kishimoto who is considered one of the greatest anime artists of his time.  He penned the well-known series called Naruto, which included 700 chapters in 72 volumes that were in serialization from 1999 to 2014.  

 The Naruto series is so well-received that it’s translated into just about any language you could imagine and made into 3 Naruto TV series totaling almost 1,000 episodes and 11 movies. 

 As for many artists, success was initially preceded by a series of unsung works.  But with persistence and resilience as well as a commitment to the love of anime artistry, Masashi Kishimoto delivered a great gift to the manga and anime community worldwide. 

 Kishimoto Inu

To honor this mangaka’s journey – namely, his grit, persistence, and inspiration towards doing great anime artistry – Kishimoto Inu has created a cryptocurrency with distinctly useful utilities and a community-first approach to create something truly great for its holders.

On the heels of a stealth launch on October 18, 2021, the Kishimoto Inu token is now minted on the ERC20 Network.  With powerful utilities featured on their Anime NFT Marketplace and Anime Exchange platform, Kishimoto Inu will generate value extending to the entire anime ecosystem.

As shared by their main developer Christian Costello, “Our vision is to provide a platform in which artists from all areas of Anime, from visual art to auditory, can come to not only showcase their talent but also get exposure that otherwise could have been more difficult.  Masashi Kishimoto is an inspiration because of the struggle he went through to get where he is today.  So, our token represents an opportunity as well as a home for our community.”

The Kishimoto Inu team also underscores the importance of community engagement and contribution to help achieve this end collectively. Says Costello: 

“our focus in the crypto-verse is not only to be a part of it but to lead it…to outperform all other existing cryptocurrencies with our smart coding that benefits loyal holders with rewards.  And this can only be achieved with the help of the community.  In just under one month, Kishimoto Inu had 10,000 holders.  We are grateful to all our holders and will always focus on providing the best utilities that will also offer the most reward.”


Utilities – NFT Marketplace

 Kishimoto Inu’s first utility is an exclusive, self-sufficient digital marketplace, where NFTs can be bought and sold using Kishimoto tokens.  Affectionately called “Kishi Ninjas,” the NFT collection will consist of 10,000 rare and unique Ninja-headed characters that will have utility in a Play-2-Earn game.

The marketplace is designed to give artists organic exposure to their craft.  Costello elaborates: 

“We are working on something special for our marketplace.  Something that hasn't been done before, so that in and of itself already makes us different.  But our focus on community-generated art along with our new platform will essentially be the catalyst.  Naturally, our platform will provide the exposure through all of our marketing outlets with influencers who cover and promote Kishimoto Inu.”


On the Horizon

The public sale started on November 16, 2021 with the mint price of 0.05ETH, followed by NFT giveaways.  By the end of 2021, Kishimoto anticipates having at least 2 Companion Collections that will complement the story development and other Ninja universe characters and will be free (+gas) for Ninja holders.

Each month holders will be awarded special perks in the form of giveaways, prizes, and raffles.  These perks will be voted on by the Ninjas holders, fueling engagement and excitement about future developments.  Additionally, holders of Kishi Ninja NFTs will be able to unlock additional benefits through roadmap activations and future phases. 


Utilities – Anime Exchange

The second utility is the Kishiswap platform which serves as a bridge for anime projects, connecting projects with anime utilities.  Vetted coins can utilize the Kishimoto Inu platform to increase exposure, have staking abilities, and help users find the hottest up-and-coming projects. 

Costello continues: 

“KishiSwap is dedicated to Anime tokens.  We only vet Anime tokens that the community chooses.  Not only can you come to swap tokens, but you will be able to stake your Kishimoto tokens where everyone can earn rewards.  This will showcase the benefits of holding.  It’s a wonderful strategy, not just a cliché line you hear all the time.  We will continue to add more functionality and utility as time progresses.  There is a lot to learn and we want to arm everyone with the information required to make informed decisions.”

A quote from Masashi Kishimoto, pulled from one of the volumes of the Naruto series, is what also serves as a mantra for Kishimoto Inu.  It goes like this:

“When people are protecting something truly special to them, they truly can strong as they can be.” – Masashi Kishimoto, Naruto, Vol. 21: Pursuit
