ZPNG has started activities to discover and support artists, illustrators, creators, etc. so that they can enter the Cardano market as NFT artists.
Through this activity, we will contribute to the development of "Japanese artists" and "Cardano NFT market". We hope to create a future that goes beyond OpenSea and Mintbase.
Therefore, we have planned a plan to distribute NFT benefits only to the delegators, with the gratitude of the ZPNG delegators on a daily basis.
This project continues until the 1-3rd term. This time, 15 artists who are active in Japan created digital art.
Most of the artists are the first CNFT works. It will be valuable, so please check how to participate and receive NFT benefits.
