“We have been paying a lot of attention to the growing interests in NFTs and we are interested in developing NFTs as a new opportunity for new manga work and artists.” said Young Magazine. “In particular, we think this collaboration with KLKTN which focuses on new manga and new artists is groundbreaking as we hope to grow manga together with the readers. We aim to create an environment where it is possible for both Japanese and International fans to enjoy and support new Manga artists and their works.”
KLKTN also plans to launch a marketplace feature within its platform by Spring 2022, that will allow users to buy and sell their NFTs, enabling both primary sales and secondary sales transactions through the platform.
