the next deployment
Wallets that own this collection “TOMIE by Junji Ito” will receive an airdrop (free distribution) of “Regenerating Tomie NFT” as a bonus (distribution time will be announced later).
Airdropped NFTs can be killed (burned) at a special site. Killing doesn’t make Tomie disappear completely. At the same time as the kill, Tomie’s NFT, which has become a piece of meat, is airdropped, and the NFT regenerates over time, returning to Tomie in the form of a beautiful girl.
Each Tomie illustration from LEVEL 1 to 4 has several patterns, which are set randomly each time you kill.
You can experience the immortal existence of Tomie, who “regenerates from a part of her body even if she kills” in the original work on the blockchain.
