Muda is launching the AfroKingz NFT collection on the Polygon blockchain. An initial batch of ten thousand AfroKingz NFTs will be minted on Polygon laying a foundation for the development of the AfroKingz universe games and AfroKingz DAO.
Polygon has grown rapidly since 2021, not just in terms of raw users, but also by building out a comprehensive ecosystem of services and features.
“Polygon has gone from strength to strength since its inception and is pioneering the next level of Ethereum scalability
“As we get closer to building Web3, data and metadata privacy is becoming a pressing issue. HOPR’s incentivized mixnet is a layer-0 solution for complete metadata privacy that will benefit all users of the Polygon ecosystem by providing low-cost privacy that seamlessly integrates with other crypto services. – Sandeep Nailwal, Polygon Co-Founder”
Polygon is the first well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its core component is Polygon SDK, a modular, flexible framework that supports building and connecting Secured Chains like Plasma, Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium, etc, and Standalone Chains like Polygon POS, designed for flexibility and independence. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 500+ Dapps, ~567M+ txns, and ~6M+ daily txns.

About Afro Kingz NFTs
Afro Kingz NFT is a collection of 15,000 unique collectibles with references from various kingdoms around the African continent that were carefully curated and presented for the metaverse.
The collection consists of Masks that come from different African tribes and kingdoms mixed with various accessories and print patterns in order to create a mix of game avatars, collectibles, and rare items. The community is invited to join the race to take control of the Afro Kingz universe by building the biggest kingdom.
The AfroKingz NFT is inspired by the rich history and culture from various African tribes and pre-colonial kingdoms. It will showcase over 15,000 hand drawn and programmatically generated artistic pieces, designed by renowned artists in the crypto sphere.
Why Launch the NFT on the Polygon Network?
To have this NFT Launch on the Polygon Network is because we find that Polygon combines the best of Ethereum and sovereign blockchains into a full-fledged multi-chain system and it solves pain points associated with NFTs, like high gas fees and slow speeds, without sacrificing on security.
The AfroKingz NFT Metaverse Project was initially planned to be rolled out directly on the ethereum network as an on chain DAO Voting token, but given the current challenges with the Ethereum blockchain such as Low Throughput, Poor user experience (high gas fees, delayed PoW finality) and No sovereignty (shared throughput/clogging risk, tech stack not customizable, governance dependence)
Many projects are exploring Ethereum-compatible blockchains as a way to mitigate these limitations while still leveraging Ethereum’s thriving ecosystem. However, there is no specialized framework to build such blockchains nor a protocol to connect them. This introduces significant development challenges and causes ecosystem
What does integration mean?
Launching the AfroKingz Soldiers NFT lot on the Polygon network means that the AFKNGZ smart contract is built on polygon and the transaction will be in MATIC to mainly benefit from fast speeds and also deal with future interoperability of the Soldiers NFTs into other chains as inline with the AfroKingz Roadmap.
Launching the AfroKingz NFT on the Polygon Network ensures the long term execution of the AfroKingz Decentralized Autonomous Organisation which will control the Kingz Treasury.
With all the new tech stacks being built on the Polygon network, it makes it the best network for long term implementation of the AfroKingz Roadmap.
