There are billions of manga fans all over the world and One Piece is as big as the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
Paradoxically, there is a blatant lack of anime/manga-related entertainment outside of content (chapters and episodes).
In fact, Anime fans spend a lot more time waiting for the next episode than watching their favorite content. They suffer from withdrawal.
Yonko is building their daily-fix between chapters with a strategic trading card game : a mix between board games like Unmatched, Super Fantasy Brawl or Summoner Wars, and Trading Card Games like Hearthstone or Legends of Runeterra).
It is a F2P using NFTs for the cards. We have already raised more than $5M to launch the 1st version by December 2023, and you can be part of it !

Note : Yonko does not advertise nor disclose information to the public yet, on purpose. Our Launch event ($1M ) will be massive and must occur under an unknown banner.
