A Unique Collection of 1/1 Art Pieces

The Project Bushido Apes collection showcases an assembly of individual and unique pieces of art. Each of the 250 pieces in this extremely limited collection is a 1/1 piece, embodying a distinct character, style, and story. This exclusivity adds to the collection's allure and offers owners a unique sense of pride and connection to their acquired piece.

OG Status and $HERO Coin Rewards

Ownership of a Bushido Ape doesn't just provide the holder with a unique piece of digital art. Each owner is granted OG status in the Real Pixel ecosystem, an exciting privilege that unlocks a plethora of benefits. Notably, OGs receive the most rewards of $HERO coin, the native token of the Real Pixel ecosystem.

Breeding and Unique Utility

Bushido Apes isn’t just about owning digital art, it’s about immersion in an evolving ecosystem. Each Bushido Ape grants special utility like breeding, allowing for the creation of new, unique NFTs, enriching the holder's digital experience, and potentially adding value to their collection.

World-Building: Monsters, Yokai, and Demigods

Stepping beyond the realm of apes, the collection features a unique assortment of monsters, Yokai, and Demigods. These intriguing characters add a depth of narrative to the Project Bushido Apes world, captivating the community with their lore and design.

Recognition at Ape Fest and Opensea Success

The intrigue and appeal of the Project Bushido Apes collection haven’t gone unnoticed. The collection was one of the few to have a piece featured at Bright Insights, the digital art gallery at the inaugural Ape Fest in NYC. This event served as a testament to the collection's artistry and its standing in the NFT community.

Moreover, the Project Bushido Apes collection has seen impressive success on the Opensea marketplace, with over 300 ETH traded in sales. This achievement underscores the popularity and demand for these unique pieces in the ever-growing NFT community.


Bushido Apes represents a pioneering stride in the NFT space, carving a path for Bored Ape Yacht Club derivatives and offering a unique blend of art, utility, and community engagement. As the collection and its accompanying ecosystem continue to evolve, it's safe to say that all eyes will be on what comes next from the inventive mind of fondu3.
