Welcome to SZN 2: ZKX Yakuza


Hey Degen,

Last time we met, you met all the characters in the ZKX Yakuza and tested the waters as an Ambassador, Contributor, or Moderator. With over 320,000 quests completed by 9000+ questers and 30 ambassadors from 10 markets claiming over 700 bounties, your response has been fantastic. But SZN 1 was just the beginning of your journey.

And now, it's time for Season 2. Remember, the path to the top is challenging, and you must prove your commitment and loyalty to the Oyabun. Get ready for even higher stakes and greater thrills this season. Are you prepared to take on the challenge?

The ZKX Yakuza Prophecy Continues 🔮

In the shadowy underworld of neo-Tokyo, the Yakuza had risen to become the city's most powerful and feared force under the guidance of the enigmatic Oyabun. With their unyielding commitment to protecting the people from exploitation, they had become a beacon of hope in a world plagued by corruption and greed. But their work was far from over.

For more than two decades, they had waged a covert war against the government and corrupt officials, and the stakes had never been higher.

The ZKX Testnet was their key, a gateway to a new age of prosperity and abundance. Oyabun’s goal was to make sure people had access to the ZKX Testnet, and bring the hard work by the Rebel Army to the finish line.

Oyabun knew they couldn't do it alone, and he was willing to open the doors of his Rebel army to anyone who had the guts to make it. That's when Ronin entered the scene, a sharp-witted hustler who could give the Yakuza the edge they needed, and bring in more people.

Meet Ronin

Meet the latest addition to the OG 4 in the ZKX Yakuza - Ronin!

This Level 4 OG is a force to be reckoned with in the ZKX Discord, known for its hustler mentality and fierce determination to climb the hierarchy and reach the top. With a gift for navigating the virtual realm and paving their way, Ronin is a true OG in every sense of the word.

As Ronin themselves put it, "I have a gift of navigating the virtual realm and paving my way to the top."

Don't forget to mark your calendars, as the eagerly anticipated results of our first DAO Bounty are set to be revealed on Monday! The winning entry, showcasing the one and only Ronin, will be released to the ZKX Universe for all to enjoy. Stay tuned for a glimpse into the creative minds of our community members!
