Dear Astar Community,
This is Izuru, the Founder of HeroicAnimals. We are a creators-led NFT project who are strongly dedicated to social causes on the Astar Network, offering unique and exciting NFTs that have many utility. One of our project purposes is to support WEB3 engineers through contributions to Astar Network, among many others such as stray cat protection activity support and giving the excitement and dream of the space to younger children. Our 1000 NFTs were sold out for our first public sale that took place between May to July this year.
HeroicAnimals is a character IP project from Japan. We aim to create cool and cute characters that will be loved by everyone forever. Since this is an IP project originated by creators, the products that can be created are limitless. We are planning to foster collaboration with Web3 companies and teams from now on. In addition to a large number of character goods, we have also decided to produce comics. We will realize the NFT dream as an IP that spreads its wings around the world with blockchain technology.
What is the purpose of this project?
HeroicAnimals are dedicated to:
- Support for cat protection activity
We continue to support domestic and international cat protection activities. In Japan, more than 30,000 cats were euthanized in 2018. It has become a huge domestic issue as there are numerous pet owners in Japan who decided to leave their pets (cats) behind, where those cats will be collected by the facility conducting euthanization. They are given only a few days for their owners to come to pick them up, and if they do not show up, they get killed instantly. Even though such facilities use the word “euthanization” for the process of putting cats to sleep, the actual procedure that takes place is far from what euthanization entails- multiple cats are often put into a gas chamber, filled with carbon dioxide. The cats will suffer greatly before finally passing away.
I want to use the income gained from dApp staking to be used for donations and other activities that support the prevention of such inhumane acts conducted on cats.
- Delivering the dream of space to children
The existing space enlightenment education is aimed at elementary school students and at those who are already interested in space. We want even younger children to have a longing for space. We will continue to provide space content that is friendly to young children.
- Web3 engineer
As entertainment creators, we have been supported by many engineers. We want to give them back something as a Web3 project. By cooperating in webinar publicity and providing artwork for hackathons with Astar Foundation, we believe we can contribute to many engineers. Recently, we provided our IP for one of the projects submitted for a hackathon that took place in Japan, and the team was able to receive a prize from Astar Foundation.
Heroic Animals is led by Izuru Shinonome (@grifonbk) , who has made significant contributions to the Astar community through his strong will to make his art NFT full on-chain, particularly to Astar Network.
The team behind Heroic Animals is dedicated to building a strong and engaged community and establishing the path for other NFT projects to join the Astar ecosystem.
