Aku is a character created by former MLB player turned artist, Micah Johnson, after hearing a young boy ask, “Can astronauts be black?”



Aku is one of the world’s first-ever digital explorers whose confidence and ingenuity have him on a mission to prove that no dream is too big and no obstacle is too large

Aku was released to the world on Feb 21, 2021 as an NFT in the form of an animated video

This animation was Chapter 1 of what is now a 10 Chapter Series that collectively lay the foundation of Aku’s world (aka the Akuverse)


What is a Moon God?

Moon Gods are Aku Chapter collectors who own all 10 unique Chapters (or 1 of the 10 physical statues from Genesis.001). Due to Chapter 3 being the bottleneck of the Chapters (lowest number minted, with a mint of 570), there can only ever be 570 Moon Gods. Moon Gods carry special responsibility – as well as accompanying exclusive benefits and access – within the Akuverse.

Akutars are the next part of the Aku movement. Akutars are a collection of 15,000 unique, 3D avatars that dropped in April 2022 on the Ethereum blockchain. Each Akutar provides entry into the ever-expanding Akuverse, where lines are blurred between the digital and physical worlds. Akutar owners have exclusive access to culture-defining experiences, products, and collaborations.
