CryptoBashō is a generative collectable series of In Profile-Picture (PFP) NFTs for the Cardanians. They feature a manga character inspired by Matsuo Bashō, a real historical figure born to a family of samurai descent. He was known as the supreme Japanese haiku poet with his wonderful and efficient poetry. The first series will feature 1,644 CryptoBashōs living on Cardano in eternity.

CryptoBashō NFT collection was designed and co-created by Abdelbaki kouba (artist), Achari Baya Imene (artist), and Eduardo Yeh (producer) with the purpose to:
1. Support the two manga-inspired artists from Algeria;
2. Further the CryptoAnime infrastructure development;
3. Serve as membership ID into CryptoAnime DAO;
4. Recognize and celebrate the next phase in the Cardano network upgrade, and
5. Make a contribution to the treasury of a high-profile independent anime film project currently in development, entitling holders of at least one CryptoBashō NFT to participate in the project when revealed.

All of the above exclusively for the Cardano NFT community.

This collection is available in the soft launched NFT marketplace FIBO by EMURGO.
