What is Lost in Jukiverse?
Created in 2010 by Indonesian artist, Faza Meonk, Si Juki is a popular comic character from the nation that has evolved into other forms of media including: webtoons, mobile games, an animated series and has also been adapted into a movie. In fact, Juki is so popular in Indonesia that he has appeared in over 50 bestselling books alongside famous characters, including superfamous sea sponge, SpongeBob SquarePants.
Lost in Jukiverse will be the second collection from Faza Meonk who’s original collection of 110 Juki cosplays currently sit on OpenSea at a floor price of 0.43 ETH. Jukiverse X, a derivative of Jukiverse, created by 34 Indonesian artists also appears on OpenSea with a floor of 0.28 (at the time of writing).
This project will consist of 3,456 Juki’s, of which 50 will be legendary, hand drawn by Faza himself. There will be more than 750 traits and we will see Juki in a range of styles such as cyberpunk, pixel, and supernatural.
Aiming to develop the Juki brand on Web2 and Web3, Lost in Jukiverse will be a space for the community to collaborate and share ideas for the IP. The roadmap is as follows:
A real and virtual showcase of the Jukiverse art.
Lost in Jukiverse Animation Airdrop
Airdrops containing unique frames will be rewarded to holders.
Jukiverse NFT Comin Collection
Comics with storylines chosen by the community.
Jukiverse Exclusive Toys
Customizable, real work, Juki toys.
Jukiverse NFT game
A game where the community can fight together to win prizes.
Jukiverse Lounge and Gallery
A creative space where the community can gather and share ideas.
No details have been provided on the final stage of the roadmap.

Being an already established IP, Lost in Jukiverse already feels like it’s a step or two ahead in the space and considering that it comes off the back of two relatively well received, smaller projects, there is fair reason to be excited for this one.
The artwork is stylish and faithful to the original, understandably so given the fact that the creator is leading the project. Also, when we consider that legendary tokens will have been hand drawn by Faza himself, there is real appeal and value to be had, as there is genuine potential to own a collectors item.
Lastly, if you are a fan of the brand, the roadmap will no doubt be something to look forward to with the offer of Juki based benefits, and a space where other like-minded fans can come together and play a real role in shaping the future of the project. Given its huge success in Indonesia and the smaller supply of just 3,456, it’s very possible that the project will sell although it remains to be seen if the floor will hold value in the long term.
The main concern for Lost in Jukiverse, is purely the long term value in the project. While the art is undeniably unique, it remains to be seen how things will play out after mint. If you are a fan of the brand then, without question, there is reason to get in and stay in – given the fact that it’s clearly a project for the die-hards, it’s possible trade volume could be minimal. On the other hand, as a trader, it’s likely that there may not be any issue selling on the secondary market due to the limited supply. Much will depend on the still to be revealed mint price. Fans of Juki will no doubt want to mint if they can, however, for the rest of us it may be best to take a wait and see approach.
