Connecting ramen communities across the universe & metaverse through collectible NFTs that unlock digital & physical utility.







Why buy digital ramen?

We sell animated bowls of ramen as collectible NFTs, which serve as access tokens to unlock utility in the digital & physical world. Here’s what our NFT holders get:

Unique artwork & "PFP"

Each NFT represents a completely unique animation, programmatically generated from 324 ingredients hand made by our ramen chefs. It also includes a static version to use as your profile picture & full commercial rights to the design.

Ramen shop perks

We're partnering with a few hand selected physical ramen shops across the globe, where our NFTs will unlock special access to in-shop perks like free ramen & secret menu items.

Metaverse shop access

When we open our flagship virtual ramen shop in the metaverse, it will be collaboratively owned & operated by our community members.

Our origin story

It began in Tokyo, where Maximillian Piras was continuing a decade old tradition of searching for new ramen shops. He was on a mission to taste every bowl he could find.

His obsession was due to more than the delicious taste, ramen resonated with him on a philosophical level. The recipes were surprisingly diverse, chefs showed simultaneous respect for tradition while celebrating endless experimentation. Ramen reminded him of art in this sense, so naturally it became a subject for his animations.

He published his first ramen animation to Giphy in 2018, where he has racked up almost two billion views. This design later graced the cover of The Tokyoiter. His timing was lucky, his animations caught the attention of an early NFT platform called MakersPlace who invited him to be an early creator. He sold his first NFT in 2019.

One of Maximillian's early collectors, Helen Hockney, suggested he explore blockchain based generative art. This brought him to the realization that the generative script popularized for profile picture projects could be a perfect way to serve digital ramen: every ingredient essentially acts like a component for the algorithm to mix together.

To realize this vision, he teamed up with friend Youhyun Kim to develop a script that could programmatically generate ramen animations & MetaRamen was born.
