Casio, the renowned watchmaker, has recently announced a groundbreaking partnership with Astar’s zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine (zkEVM) to launch an NFT collection. This collaboration is a tribute to Casio’s 50th anniversary and marks a significant milestone for both companies.

The partnership aims to enhance scalability through the alliance of Casio and Astar zkEVM, powered by Polygon. Utilizing the Polygon Chain Development Kit (CDK), Astar zkEVM has integrated the gamified user onboarding experience Yoki Origins into its latest partnership with Casio, offering an innovative solution for Ethereum Layer-2 scaling.

One of the highlights of the NFT collection is the depiction of iconic Casio watch models in each digital artwork. The collection, named Yoki Origins, will feature the Casio YoPort capsule machine, with two versions available for purchase – one offering a single NFT and the other including eight NFTs. The official Reveal Day for these artworks is set for May 10, adding anticipation and excitement to the release.

Casio has collaborated with talented creators to design the digital memorabilia for this collection, creating a diverse series of NFT artwork representing different iconic Casio watch models. Additionally, customers who participate in the Casio watch NFT sales have the opportunity to win prizes such as an original G-Shock watch and an Astar token valued at 10,000 yen (approximately ), with the Astar zkEVM logo prominently displayed on the watch.

This innovative partnership between Casio and Astar zkEVM showcases the intersection of traditional watchmaking and cutting-edge blockchain technology, offering collectors and enthusiasts a unique and valuable digital collectible experience.
