Coin Ceylon, the pioneering blockchain company behind the very first Cardano stake pool  and blockchain forum in Sri Lanka, recently presented ‘Yakka’, the 1st ever  Cardano NFT Project to originate from Sri Lanka, with a groundbreaking collection of  traditional Sri Lankan masks as Cardano NFTs with real life utility benefits. 

This first-of-its kind project from Sri Lanka features 6,666 unique NFT masks, including 6000 stunning 2D designs and 666 captivating 3D animated masks, each inspired by authentic cultural folklore  and Yakka masks dating back thousands of years. 

The Yakka CNFT Project revolutionises the use of digital art by actively supporting and  uplifting the dying traditional art of mask-making in Sri Lanka. A portion of the funds raised  from this project will be used to provide local artisans with essential supplies, equipment,  and materials needed to create these intricate masks. Coin Ceylon also plans to establish a  tree farm reforestation programme to sustain the art form while protecting the environment. 

In addition to showcasing Sri Lankan art and culture, the Yakka CNFT Project aims to  promote Sri Lanka as a lucrative tourist destination. Holders of these unique NFT masks will  be eligible for a range of exciting benefits, such as the opportunity to have a physical mask  shipped to their location worldwide, access to airdrops, NFT drops, and partner benefits from  global companies.

Moreover, three lucky winners will be selected through a draw to receive a fully sponsored one-week vacation in Sri Lanka, where they can witness the sacred 18  Sanniya dance ritual, experience the mask-making process firsthand, and discover the  breathtaking beauty of the island. 

Coin Ceylon invites you to explore this fascinating fusion of traditional art, culture, and  cutting-edge blockchain technology. Visit the Yakka CNFT Project website at  to learn more and become a part of this unprecedented journey, which aims to preserve Sri  Lanka’s rich cultural heritage while making a positive impact through the innovative use of  NFTs and community building.
