Bushidos, an NFT project led by Coinbase and Stripe employees, has recently arrived in NFT territory. The launch and sales results completely exceeded the creators’ expectations, so much so that there is already a high demand for the release of the project’s second phase.
Bushidos are no longer available.
Jeremy Booth, the project’s leader and an illustrator at Coinbase, came up with the idea and storyline a few months ago. That’s when he began working on Bushidos, a pop-art/samurai-themed collectibles project featuring 8,888 warriors dedicated to preserving blockchain decentralization and combating FUD.
Three weeks before the project’s highly anticipated launch, the team decided to release a free NFT called the Sashimono limited 888. What followed was a swarm of NFT enthusiasts and degens, all eager to get their hands on one of these valuable NFTs, which would grant the holder pre-sale access to the Bushidos drop for 48 hours prior and the opportunity to mint two Bushimodos per Sashimono. The Sashimono limited edition NFTs flew off the shelves in less than three minutes.
The official Bushidos drop, which took place this past Friday, sold out in less than five hours, establishing a remarkable start for the project. The drop included 8,888 NFTs at a cost of.0888 ETH each.
The Bushidos community has now outgrown all expectations, and the team has exciting plans in the works to add even more value to the ever-expanding community. Holders of a Bushido NFT will receive a free unique sword NFT called Katan at the end of the year (date to be confirmed), and season two of the story is currently in the works. The upcoming season will see the release of a comic NFT telling the origin story of Bushidos, as well as the introduction of a new character in the form of a new NFT collection.
What exactly are Bushidos?
The Bushidos are a samurai warrior clan who live by eight virtuous principles. In times of peace and war, these principles have guided their actions.
The Bushidos Clan was one of the world’s most powerful communities 100 years ago. Its eight Guilds were known for their skill, culture, and community, and the Bushido Warriors were known for their skill, culture, and community. Until an evil ruler rose up and, seeing the blockchain’s power, sought to centralize it under his rule. A massive battle ensued, and the evil ruler eventually gained control of the blockchain.
Following a mysterious event, samurai warriors from each of the Bushidos Guilds took up their ancestors’ swords and banded together for a common goal: to open the portal and defeat the evil ruler for the first time in 100 years. To reawaken the once-dormant blockchain.
So…stay tuned for Season 2!
The incredible team’s goal is to build an active creative community centered on samurai lore and culture. As a result, they practice what they preach, particularly Honor, one of the eight virtuous principles and one that is critical for the Bushidos team to uphold. Collectors can rest assured that the fully doxxed team will be around for a long time. Jeremy Booth, Illustrator at Coinbase, Jai Prasad, Engineer at Coinbase, Cesar Pantoja, Engineer at Coinbase, and Christopher Davis, Designer at Stripe make up the team.
