If you’re not already familiar with Akuma Origins, let’s take a look at how the project grew in popularity in recent days and what the team has in store for the future.
The Akuma concept was born in Belgium, with a team of six working quickly to turn their idea into a reality.
The Akuma universe centers around the Yokai, an army of 5,555 warriors known for their combat skills and general camaraderie. In the midst of a fierce storm, a merchant stumbled upon a cave that contained an evil spirit. The merchant accidentally released said spirit, known as Akuma, and now it is the yokai’s duty to protect the kingdom.
The project was revealed yesterday, April 6, when Yokai was released into the universe. Since the reveal, Akuma Origins has caught fire, with around 8,000 ETH currently in OpenC with a trading price of 1.24 ETH on the floor at the time of this article.
Chirag Hira, Eamon Conway, and I track the highest sales and biggest sweeps in the Metaverse on a daily basis, with Akuma standing out lately. Over the past two days, seven major sweeps have raised a total of 128.76 ETH (approximately $415,240.00). Follow us on Twitter to keep track of the most popular NFT projects.
