Starting today, derivative work NFT creation of the popular NFT collection, CryptoNinja, will be available on ‘Nijiso’, a platform that actively supports derivative work creators. Creators can now sell their works of their own accord with their choice of sales method.

For those who have applied for CryptoNinja derivative works, thank you for waiting! Log in to ‘Nijiso’ and make your officially approved CryptoNinja work into an NFT!

Along with that, the CryptoNinja derivative work collection (https://opensea.io/collection/official-ninjart) has also been released on OpenSea.

■ About the culture of creating derivative works and NFT

Utilizing the world trending technology of NFT allows creators to create “one-and-only artworks” and sell them digitally on the internet. On the marketplace, there has already been a wide range of NFT works with pricing starting from a few JPY to over a million JPY. Especially popular NFTs have many derivative works created.

‘Nijiso’ aims to develop this culture of creating derivative works by providing a new system.

With the permission of the original owner, creators are allowed to make and sell “officially-approved NFTs” of their favorite characters. The artworks will be added to official collections, and creators have the right to set a price and sell the works on platforms such as OpenSea, with their choice of sales method. This also provides fans with a safe purchase of an NFT as they can see it is officially approved by the original owner.

Not only new (unpublished) illustrations but also published illustrations without an NFT are eligible to apply. In addition, there is no limit to the number of illustrations you submit an application. We are looking forward to seeing your artworks!
