Welcome To The Biggest Asian NFT Project

8888 authentic and thoughtfully drawn Lunar Zodiac characters celebrating Asian culture and representation in the ever growing world of NFTs. We’re here to advocate for Asian art and artists and be a sanctuary to all that love our culture.
Welcome to Zodiac Friends.

Our Story

Our vision is to be a home to Asian individuals, artists and allies all around the world. We’re so happy that you’re here with us.

Zodiac Friends tell the story of ‘The Great Race’, a famous Asian fable told to generations of children every Lunar New Year. The Ruler of The Heavens, The Jade Emperor, wanted to come up with a way to devise time. To do this, he organized a race and deemed that the first 12 animals to make it across a river would have a place on the Zodiac calendar. The order of this would be determined by their placing in the race.

Our Funds

THE ZODIAC FRIENDS FUND

Zodiac Friends is more than just a release of kawaii characters, we are here to represent a movement towards mass Asian representation and appreciation in the NFT space. To do this, we need to ensure continued projects and longevity. The Zodiac Friends Fund is established to have resources to fund future projects, art purchases and collaboration under the Zodiac Friends brand. We will be reinvesting a third of royalties from recurring sales, along with 55% of profits from art ventures back into this fund.

POOL OF FORTUNE

All Zodiac Friends will have equal opportunity to receive royalties and profits from ventures. A third of royalties from recurring sales, and 25% of profits from art ventures will be put into this fund. This will be distributed out to Zodiac Friends holders through raffles and giveaways.

Charities We Believe In

We will donate to Asian based charities around the world that our community cares about. We have a #charity-voting channel in our Discord so that our community can choose the four charities that speak to them the most. Join our discord now to share your voice!
