Japanese artist from Tokyo 44-year-old Ichi Hatano found a new source of income with the region's first crypto art exhibition held in the Japanese capital city.


The artist's work, which features creatures from Japanese folklore, had gained popularity among international tourists, but took a backseat due to the pandemic and lockdown.

But to his good fortune, the most loved designs will now be available in digital art forms, as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).


The NFT’s that cannot be duplicated became an overnight sensation in a very short span of time.

The CrypTokyo exhibition features the artist's work along with many others in Tokyo’s Harajuku district.


Hoping to take home a huge sum of money for his artwork, the artist will finally be given his due.
