Unique HiROQUEST Journeys
Steve Aoki has crafted a variety of quests to build hype surrounding the album. The initial HiROQUEST journey first kickstarted at ‘ Collect-A-Con’ in Houston, Texas, on November 4. Event attendees were invited to immerse themselves in all things HiROQUEST, collecting virtual promotional cards (NFTs), admiring Aoki’s live performance, and meeting the musical talent himself.
On top of that, today, to celebrate the release of the studio album, all fans are invited to join Aoki and other community members to discuss HiROQUEST via the DJ’s official Discord channel at 1 pm (PT).
The excitement surrounding the album doesn’t end there. It continues to build at 1201 S Santa Fe Ave, Los Angeles, at the “official album release party” on November 19. From 1-5 pm (PT), attendees can anticipate partaking in four exciting activities to collect digital cards, interact with cosplay actors, and win a free flash tattoo. Plus, the opportunity to meet Aoki, access limited-edition merchandise, and redeem the first exclusive HiROQUEST promo card created by Kolex will arise.
Technicalities Behind the Quests
Kolex is central to all quests, which build a bridge between tangible and virtual collectibles. Through the digital asset platform, collectors can easily manage and swap the blockchain-based digital cards, which are individually numbered and scannable to add a layer of convenience and transparency to the ultimate collecting experience.
Aoki has expressed enthusiasm surrounding the collectors’ bundle and how Kolex’s Web3 technology brought his vision of an immersive trading card game to life. The ‘HiROQUEST Collectors Edition Bundle’ is an intriguing, tech-savvy option to watch out for, setting a new benchmark for music fans and collectors alike by tactfully combining music, technology, and art through a hoarding escapade.
