What is Krapopolis?

Krapopolis is set to be a legendary animated TV series that depicts the story of a mythical showdown in a family of humans, monsters, and gods trying to take over one of the first cities in the world without murdering each other. Krapopolis features gods, goddesses, cyclops, mermaids, and much more.

The animated TV series, with its backstory set in the ancient land of Greece, is the first to properly feature the elements of blockchain technology. It will allow its audience to be a part of its story.

As part of its launching sequence, Krapopolis conducted an auctioning event for NFTs on the biggest NFT marketplace by trading volume, OpenSea. 

Two tokenholders from the auction will be given the opportunity to inspire a character in the animated series in the final episode of its first season.

Back in August, the producers of the NFT animated series launched the first NFT project associated with the show, the Krap Chickens. The NFT collection features 10,420 “chicken” NFTs. 

Tokenholders of Krap Chickens will enjoy access to rare merchandise, to Discord channels, invitations to exclusive meet-and-greets with Krapopolis’ cast and producing team, and future NFT drops.

Another NFT project related to the tokenized animated series has been made available in an auctioning event from the 27th of November and will span through the 4th of December. The ‘Keys to Krapopolis’ collection was formed in a collaboration between animated series creator and producer, Dan Harmon, and FOX Entertainment. These NFTs will be integrated into two Krap Chickens as the second picture in the virtual treasure hunt.

The scavenger hunt starts on the 7th of December. People can win one of the Keys to Krapopolis in the hunt. The first key will go to whoever can appropriately answer multiple-choice questions regarding Krapopolis. The winner will also win the opportunity to be added as a character in the animated TV series.
