^BlockPunk

Blockpunk is a P2P anime studio based in Singapore and Japan that uses Ethereum blockchain technology to give fans and creators more voice in the anime production and control over their digital rights.

My work at Blockpunk includes the design and implementation of the new studio website, NFC chip and crypto art digital frame and certification, and an MVP for anime prediction market Crystal Ball. For the studio website, we have commissioned an artist to illustrate Blockpunk's webmanga in order to tell our story in the manner that resonates most with anime fans. Crystal ball's art direction and user flow is designed to optimize for familiarity among Japanese users and manga fans. Therefore, I chose to mimic the typical Japanese's website - messy, yet informative instead of applying a standard Western minimalistic style. So far, we have received approximately 51k page views with 46k among them are unique visits.

Why now?


The anime business model is broken.

Production committees driven by TV broadcast and DVD sales are breaking down, making way for the big streaming platforms to finance productions. For the creators, streaming globally comes with a big trade-off in lost rights and no access to viewing data. These platforms are also not optimised to sell merchandise. That’s where we come in. Our unique polling and prediction platform allows fans to share their preferences directly with creators to plan future shows. We help creators deliver merchandise direct to fans at higher margins. We connect creators and fans, no middlemen. We uncover new stories and voices.
