The Samurai Saga’s Ecosystem & Official Whitepaper
Samurai Saga is not a typical NFT collection. It’s an entire ecosystem, developed and revolving around 3 core components: an NFT collection comprised of extremely detailed artwork, staking and tokenomics, and a state-of-the-art Play-to-Earn game.
Component #1 | Detailed NFT Artwork Collection
We are highly committed to creating an NFT collection consisting of the best and most insanely-detailed artwork. Thanks to our amazing artist, Dino Tomic, we will continuously deliver unique pieces of artwork with every NFT produced, irrespective of that NFT’s perceived rarity. In fact, each of our NFTs will offer unique utilities and rewards, adding to the breadth of our ecosystem.
Component #2 | Staking & Tokenomics
We strive to deliver the best artwork and utilities behind our NFTs. Each of our NFTs can be staked to earn our $GENKI token, which will be used for future NFT drops and in-game purchases.
Component #3 | The Samurai Saga Game
The team is dedicated to creating an online multiplayer game where players will be able to earn rewards while enjoying the ultimate gaming experience.
In this litepaper, you will discover our Roadmap v.2.0, what to expect as an NFT holder, and a description of $GENKI token utilities. Our team is committed to bringing the highest-quality products to our stakeholders and community while building the ultimate Web3 play-to-earn gaming experience.
Here is a high-level overview of how our NFT ecosystem works. Additional details can be found in subsequent sections of this article.
- Detailed NFT Artwork Collection: We choose to be different. Each of our NFTs are unique while adhering to a standard of being exceptionally detailed pieces of artwork in themselves. There are millions of possible composition combinations but only a limited amount will ever be created.
- Mining $GENKI Tokens: Each of our NFTs act as miners of our $GENKI token, currently tradable on Uniswap. Simply stake your NFT through our website and you will begin mining our $GENKI token. This token will be used in multiple ways, and said uses will be delineated in our current and future roadmaps. No pre-mining has occurred, zero buy and sell taxes and our NFT holders are the sole creators of $GENKI tokens.
- $GENKI Token Utilities: $GENKI is our native in-game currency used to upgrade characters, open loot boxes, and mint future NFT collections such as Kaiju and Teen Samurai.
- Unlocking Playable Characters: Each NFT collection will give our holders the ability to unlock new playable characters with unique attributes and in-game skills
- Play-To-Earn Gaming Access: All of our NFT holders will be able to access our upcoming play-to-earn game and utilize their characters towards earning rewards.
- “Free” Mint Of Future NFTs: Both our Cyborg Samurai and Onna-Bugeisha have the ability to mine $GENKI tokens which will be used to mint our upcoming collections. These new NFT collections will be incorporated in our upcoming game, expanding the possibilities of player interaction and gameplay mechanics.
Our NFT Collections
Cyborg Samurais are the core of the Samurai Saga and are the first tribe of warriors to enter the great battle against Kaiju monsters. They are soldiers, champions, and rare legends. Each Cyborg Samurai holds the key to battling for glory and seeking the highest amount of rewards. Our Cyborg Samurai NFT collection is sold out and now only available on Opensea.
- NFT Staking
Each Cyborg Samurai is eligible to harvest $GENKI tokens through Samurai Saga’s NFT staking system. Compared to other collections, the Cyborg Samurai have the highest rate of $GENKI harvesting and they are the core generators of $GENKI. The longer the duration, the more $GENKI tokens will be harvested.
- Playable Characters
Cyborg Samurais will be the first playable characters in the upcoming play-to-earn game. Each Cyborg Samurai is equipped for the great battle ahead with a unique set of attributes and skills, facilitating the ultimate gaming experience with the highest potential for earning rewards within Samurai Saga.
- Exclusive Rewards
Cyborg Samurais are the first to enter the game arena and have the potential to earn the most rewards through their accomplishments. They are honorable leaders, explorers and warriors that will be rewarded handsomely in-line with their influence and actions. No other collection will be on par with the earning potential of the Cyborg Samurai within Samurai Saga.
Onna-Bugeisha (Releasing in Mid-March 2022)
Onna-Bugeisha play a major role within the Samurai Saga. They are breeders, creators, and ultimate warriors joining the battle alongside Cyborg Samurai. The Onna-Bugeisha play a crucial role in enhancing the Samurai Saga ecosystem. The Onna-Bugeisha will be the first-ever NFT collection within Samurai Saga to mint with our $GENKI tokens.

Onna-Bugeisha warriors are unique, playable characters in the upcoming play-to-earn game. Ownership of an Onna-Bugeisha NFT is required to gain access to this extraordinary character class with exclusive skills and attributes.
- Breeding Teen Samurai
Onna-Bugeisha are the lifeblood of future Teen Samurai. They have the strength and neural encoding needed to give birth to Teen Samurai, the newest members of the impending conflict. This battalion of impassioned offspring will be greatly needed in the numerous skirmishes of this prolonged war.
Kaiju (Releasing In May 2022)
Only mintable with $Genki Tokens
The Kaiju are historically known as a nefarious tribe that destroyed the previous indigenous civilization. However, since the Cyborg Samurai and Onna-Bugeisha touched ground and joined forces, the Kaiju have found themselves fighting vigorously to hold their ground. A shared bounty is offered to each Kaiju that tears apart their enemy Cyborg Samurai and Onna-Bugeisha.
- NFT Staking
Each Kaiju will be eligible to harvest $GENKI tokens through Samurai Saga’s NFT staking system. The longer the duration, the more $GENKI tokens will be received through staking.
- Playable Characters
Kaiju will be playable characters in the upcoming play-to-earn game. Every Kaiju character comes with an exclusive set of attributes and skills, allowing players to experience a distinct gameplay style compared to the other collections.
- Pool Rewards
The Kaiju have formed an army of the evil to destroy the last vestiges of Cyborg Samurai and Onna-Bugeisha. They fight together and die together, and share rewards earned from each victory in equal measure. The rewards bestowed on the Kaiju will be proportionate to the number of victories they achieve.
Only mintable through breeding of Onna-Bugeisha and with $Genki Tokens. Details are forthcoming.
The Play-To-Earn Game
The Samurai Saga will be a revolutionary Web3 play-to-earn gaming experience. Our goal is to create a game of the highest-quality that will allow players to earn rewards and tokens. The Samurai Saga is an open-world, multiplayer game with multiple game modes and varied rewards. The game is built upon Unreal Engine and brings forth surreal graphics made by highly experienced game developers and top-notch designers.
Our goal is not just to build a game, but to create a system that revolves heavily around the $GENKI token and multiple reward tracks.
Our first playable game demo has an expected release date of April 2022. For more updates and creation process, please be sure to join our Discord.

No preminting has or ever will be conducted and the token is designed such that NFT holders are the primary beneficiaries. The team at Samurai Saga is incentivized solely through the usage of $GENKI tokens.
The maximum supply of $GENKI tokens is set at 300 million with 100% of its distribution allocated to NFT stakeholders and the upcoming play-to-earn game. The $GENKI token has zero buying or selling tax and is now available on Uniswap for purchase.
Usage of $GENKI Tokens
The $GENKI token plays a major role within the Samurai Saga’s economy. It is designed to incentive holders and encourage players to contribute to the project in meaningful, scalable ways. The $GENKI token will have multiple use cases within the game and potentially in real-world scenarios.
