What is The Mafia Animals
The Mafia Animals (TMA) is an NFT collection founded by an illustrator, Rii2 (Ritsu). As the name suggests, the theme is “Mafia-looking Animals.”
This design has a cool Italian mafia feel, with portraits of animals dressed as mafia members.
The recent NFT trend is generative art, but TMA is all about original characters full of personality. Completely original NFT art, only one of its kind in the world.
At the time of writing this, 43 characters have been introduced. In the early days, they were sold on a first-come, first-served basis. However, it is now well known as an NFT that cannot be bought even if you want to, because it is sold one by one in auction or offer styles.
Owning a TMA NFT earns you an executive title in the “TMA Family” community.
