In a world where collectors face numerous challenges such as limited access to quality products, potential counterfeits, and high storage costs, Unikura revolutionizes ownership of collectibles. “Whether it’s an authentic piece of modern art or a rare item from your favorite musician, each one of us cherishes something,” says Daisaku Harada, the founder of Unikura. “Web3 technology is accelerating the formation of these niche communities. We are challenging the traditional notions of ‘ownership’ and ‘trust’ through Unikura.”

Why Unikura?

Collectors have long been hindered by limited access to quality global products, inadequate secure storage solutions, a prevalence of counterfeit collectibles, and a lack of places to share information about the collectibles. Unikura leverages the transformative power of blockchain technology for the Tokenization of Real-World Assets (RWA). Using Web3 technology, we tokenize each item, giving it a unique digital identity on the blockchain, while also providing secure, real-world storage solutions. This opens up new avenues for asset appreciation and community interaction.

Secure Vaulting

Unikura eliminates common challenges that come with purchasing collectibles from overseas, such as high shipping costs, customs duties, and language barriers. After acquiring ownership rights to a collectible via its physical backed NFT, buyers have the option to securely store the collections in designated warehouses. Whenever you wish, you can also redeem your physical backed NFT to have the physical collections delivered to you.

Hassle-Free Payments with Cryptocurrency

Unikura lets you pay directly with crypto wallets like MetaMask, so you do not have to worry about high payment fees and exchange rates that usually come with international payments.

Currently, we only accept Ethereum for payments, but we will gradually introduce support for other cryptocurrencies in the future. Please note that additional gas fees will apply when using Ethereum.

Collector’s Community

Unikura hosts a Discord community where users can share updates about new collectibles, participate in exclusive conversations, and even enjoy real-world benefits. Physical backed NFT owners receive special invites to Unikura’s real-life events, enhancing networking and exchange among collectors.

Seller Royalty – Turn Your Listing into an Asset

Unlike traditional marketplaces, Unikura offers sellers an ongoing royalty percentage each time the physical backed NFT of their item is resold, thus transforming your listings into lasting assets.

Limited-Time Offer: Up to 50% Off Physical backed NFTs

To celebrate the launch of Unikura’s closed beta, we’re excited to offer special discounts on physical backed NFTs available on our platform. From now through September 29, 2023, you can enjoy 30-50% off on all collections. While the platform is open for everyone to explore, you’ll need a “Unikura Genesis Pass” to complete any NFT purchases.
