ZKX Yakuza: Where Community Meets Gamification

The Yakuza sits at the heart of the ZKX DAO. United by the Oyabun’s vision, find Core Contributors, Ambassadors, and OGs emerging from our community. These three forces synergize to pave the way for the decentralization of the ZKX Protocol. The Yakuza instills the essence of ZKX’s values — Trustless and Borderless. Unified by loyalty to the DAO, their objective is to ensure its growth and sustenance.

A Recap of Yakuza Universe

Launched on Jan 25th, 2023, Yakuza followed the story of 8 characters set in a dystopian future where the government exercised full control over the financial world, the internet and had set their eyes on controlling Ethereum. In this oppressive system, the mysterious Oyabun emerged as a beacon of hope, leading the charge to reclaim the power of the people.

In SZN 1, Oyabun assembled a rebel army in alliance with Saiko-Komon, embarking on a covert war against the government and corrupt officials for over two decades. But victory took work, and in SZN2, Oyabun had to ensure widespread access to the ZKX Testnet for their success. This pivotal moment saw the entry of Ronin, a street-smart hustler renowned for his wit, marking a crucial turning point. Ronin brought strategic partnerships that gave the Yakuza the essential edge and attracted a surge of new traders into their fold.

What’s next?

Now that the Yakuza seasons have unfolded, promising suspense, loyalty, and the pursuit of justice, it is time to reward those who earned Oyabun’s loyalty during this journey before they embark on another mission.
