The Bushido Society was founded centuries ago. An order that was created to represent and protect Bushido, an ancient warrior’s code that originated from the Japanese military nobility; the Samurai.
This elite class of fighters lived by this ancient code that was often described as “the way of the warrior.” A moral code that placed a duty on the warriors’ shoulders demanding allegiance, loyalty, and honor, until death.
Hundreds of years ago as tides changed politically and the people of Japan began to embrace urbanization and technology, the Samurai were abolished. Japanese soldiers who prized the Bushido above their own lives, refusing to surrender and choosing death over betraying their values. Many of the samurai warriors performed seppuku (ritual suicide) in their determination to maintain their honor.
What was once the strongest order known to mankind became a myth, entertaining tales recounted in literature and film with traces of their origins and exploits present in history.
Bushido Society’s first mission is to establish a great community. The backbone of every notable order is a community of loyal supporters, thus all of our efforts during this period will be aimed at assembling warriors.
The Bushido Society has brought the Bushidos from the past and they are here to stay. The warriors swear by “The Seven Virtues of Bushido” and through this, they can prove their dedication.
After they have taken the oath, the new warriors will be allowed to enter the Discord community. Only true warriors with a solid heart will be granted the opportunity to become a Bushido.
Bushidos take over the digital world as a limited supply of highly exclusive Bushido NFTs will be made available for minting on the Solana blockchain. Only 2222 warriors will be able to become part of the Bushido Society once we arrive at the mint date.
If you truly wish to become a Bushido, show your leaders why you are worthy to take on the title. Read the whitelist requirements to understand the conditions you are expected to fulfill.
This phase entails the creation of an engaged and loyal community of Bushidos who are proud to be a part of the Bushido society. Warriors who mint a Bushido Society NFT will become Bushidos and deserve to earn back.
We aim to do this by offering valuable long-term benefits:
Bushidos will have a say in the further development of the community, they will be able to contribute regarding the addition of certain utilities for the future, and the roadmap. For now, however, holders will have access to an exclusive community welcoming only loyal Bushidos, and they will be able to check the rarity of their non-fungible tokens.
On top of that, after our launch we will introduce our staking system. By Staking NFTs, holders are sending their Bushido Warriors to our digital training camp for samurais, where holders will be rewarded for loyalty and duty with our unique token.
Our goal is to build a dauntless community of Bushidos and to give back ceaselessly; not only in the present but in the future as we continue to expand as a community.
