XANA Metaverse and XANALIA NFT Marketplace developed by NOBORDER.z has launched an avatar NFT in cooperation with the Heroes, Inc. It was the metaverse-compatible avatar NFT adaptation of the comic ” (English name: ROOSTER FIGHTER)”. It achieved record sales of “100 million yen (267 ETH) in initial sales.” XANA collaborated with OKX, the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency exchange.
Rooster Fighter NFT Witnessed Largest First-time Sale Ever
ROOSTER FIGHTER is a manga work that takes on the unprecedented theme of “A rooster saves mankind in rooster battle action!”
XANA encourages the quirky characters and settings, and as soon as the first volume of the manga was released in Japan, they applied for an NFT version. After months of deliberation on how to turn this groundbreaking content into an NFT for the Metaverse era. In addition to the PFP (Profile Avatar), which is currently the standard in the NFT world, XANA also developed:
- 3D avatars that can be used in the metaverse.
- NFT game NFTDuel, an NFT game in the same metaverse.
- Breeding functionality is popular in the NFT game market.
As soon as it opened, there was a rush of accesses, and the servers went down at times. Eventually, 3,000 NFT were purchased from 0.08 ETH to 0.1 ETH, and sales exceeded 100 million Japanese yen.
In the NFT market, which is growing explosively, mainly Overseas, there are still only a few projects from Japan that have exceeded 100 million yen in initial sales, and
this is the highest amount for an NFT, metaverse NFT or NFT game based on a Japanese manga.
Rooster Fighter NFTs
XANA initially issued NFTs depicting three different patterns of “eggs” and prepared for the “hatching of the eggs” one week after the start of sales. The XANA community called it a ‘hatching’, and for several days users had been sending out numerous messages about how they were looking forward to seeing how their eggs would turn into Roosters.
The time of the hatching took place on the night of 24 April; the XANA discord server with 47,000 people, many users, immediately changed their icons to Roosters with which they had obtained, and the chat about the humorous Roosters created by Shu Sakuratani, which are unique, flowed at high speed within seconds and was very exciting.
The proceeds will be used for the ongoing development of a 3D version of the avatar, the game function and the breeding function. Roosters that do not hatch this time will be born in the future through ‘breeding’, in which NFTs are crossbred. The Roosters sold for the first time will be differentiated from later generations in terms of functionality as the Zeroth Generation, making them extremely valuable, and their price has already more than trebled in the secondary distribution market XANALIA.
