Line Friends (IPX)
Line Friends (IPX) is a global character brand that originated from the Line messaging app, a mobile messenger line used by more than 200 million people around the world.
A huge win for the Azuki/Beanz community. This is going to get a lot of eyes on @OfficiaIBEANZ that might not have seen them before!

“Our partnership with Bybit and Azuki has been an ideal way to help us explore the Web3 world. In many ways, it’s been an eye-opener for us to the vast opportunities Web3 has to offer.”
Christian Horner, CEO of Oracle Red Bull Racing
Chiru Labs partners with 2022 F1 World Champion Red Bull Racing and Bybit to put the first-ever NFT character on a Formula 1 car.
The Azuki-branded car appeared in the last race of the 2022 season in Abu Dhabi. The Azuki character will continue to be part of the Red Bull Racing car design in the 2023 season.
Note: According to Bybit, putting the Azuki on the race car was for free (Source: Bybyt Twitter Account).
Note: Epik High was the first Korean act to ever perform at Coachella in 2016. They were also the first Korean act to return to the festival in 2022.
Azuki continues to work towards becoming an international anime brand by partnering up with major media platform Bilibi – the YouTube equivalent in China.
Note: Bilibili had more than 332 million monthly active users in Q3 of 2022. Some people see this as a strategy to utilize Chiru Labs’ BEANZ collection to target the young audience globally – similar to how their advisor Rehito Hatoyama did it with brands like Hello Kitty.
The team collabs with the fashion brand AMBUSH® to sell exclusive hoodies and pendants to the community. This further showcased Chiru Labs’ Physical-Backed-Token (PBT) technology.

Chiru Labs sends 2,000 Bobu Tokens (~$1M) into the International Space Station via a Ledger wallet for 31 days.
Note: This marketing initiative came from a partnership with a student-run research project from Grand Canyon University.
