BOSO TOKYO is a new, original collection from a strong, experienced team with an abundance of experience. It is a generative avatar project which is being built for metaverse capabilities.
What is BOSO TOKYO?
The main vision of BOSO TOKYO is to provide an avatar for their collectors’ single identities in the metaverse. They aim for the time that metaverse co-exists for their avatars will be used on several platforms by people who own them.
The team is confident that BOSO TOKYO will become an “identity-defining brand for the metaverse era”.
Upon the drop of the collection in early August, the project looks to introduce ‘REVVING’, where users will be able to stake their NFTs and earn passive rewards. Beyond this, users will be granted commercial use rights, allowing them to “create figures, use it in advertisements, rent it out” and more with no limits. This is not always something that is seen in NFT projects, however, it is certainly a positive when you do see it.
The project’s Twitter and website launched yesterday (June 13th). You can follow them on Twitter or check out their website for any future news about the project. A Discord is set to be coming soon but hasn’t yet been released.
Finally, the project is holding a giveaway for one of its NFTs. You can find the link here, and enter the giveaway by doing a simple task. A teaser video can also be found on the giveaway page.
