The original Kani (蟹) Character (or Crab) we used as an inspiration for our design, was first featured in the 1978 Japanese Arcade Game "Space Invaders" developed by Taito and designed by legendary Tomohiro Nishikado. Kani was the "Medium size" invader and today it is easily one of the most recognizable video game characters ever created. In fact, even to this day ,new editions/incarnations of the game are being released and find new life on various platforms.
If you are already part of the Cardano Family, we don't need to tell you why we also chose it. For those not yet familiar with it, Cardano is a layered blockchain for smart contracts and Dapp development. Cardano isn't just a disruptive technology, it is a foundational technology with the potential to transform a variety of problem domains, from Finance to even social structures...
Native tokens (such as our Kani Token) behave the same as "ADA" (Cardano's own currency) in most ways including functionality as well as security. However, Ada being the “principal” currency of Cardano, is the only one which can be used for some special purposes, such as paying fees for transactions.
ERC-20 tokens have proven vulnerable to a wide range of security issues, most of which are not present for Cardano Native Tokens.
Native Tokens Minted on the Cardano blockchain can be stored, sent, and received in the same way as ADA. The wallets that support Native Token storage on Cardano are CC Wallet, Daedalus, Nami, and Yoroi with more to come in the future...
There are two methods to viewing your Native Tokens and NFTs in your wallet. Firstly, you can use Cardano wallets such as Nami, GeroWallet or CardWallet that allow you to see them directly in your wallet. Also worth noting is that since the launch of smart contracts, the Yoroi wallet by Emurgo is soon to be updated to include a new NFT Viewing Gallery. You can find out all about that here: https://summit.cardano.org/sessions/what-s-in-store-for-yoroi-wallet-users Secondly, you can utilise online tools like Pool.pm that display Native Tokens and NFTs in your wallet. All you need to do is insert your the ID of either one in your wallet into the search bar et voila, your Tokens/ NFT will be displayed with all the relevant metadata.
Unfortunately If you try to purchase our token and or NFTs from an exchange they might be lost forever! Please Only use it with light wallets and full nodes, such as the above mentioned Daedalus, Nami, and Yoroi etc...!
You can send your Tokens and NFTs from your wallet directly to another person's wallet or another wallet that you own.
All you need to do is have an address to send it to that starts with the prefix "addr1.." which means that the receiver wallet is a Shelley era wallet and NOT on an exchange.
The next step is to ensure that you have enough ADA to cover the cost of sending the NFT. Simply enter the correct address and amount displayed in the wallet, verify with your spend password, and that's it!
