“Curecos #MyBestCosplay2022” Contest to be Held to Discover New Cosplay Heroine
Cure Inc., the operator of “Curecos”, an online service enabling tipping supports towards cosplayers and purchase of NFTs from every corner of the world, and specialised cosplay news & information site “Curecos Plus” is organising “My Best Cosplay 2022” Photo Posting Contest from 20th December, 2022, with an aim to discover new heroines leading the future of the cosplay industry. Winners will be presented with various prizes including the chance to appear on the advertisement in cosplay magazine “COSPLAY MODE”, or to appear as the cover model on the pamphlet of the cosplay event “acosta!”, as well as the privilege to be introduced in solo interview articles in “Curecos Plus” – a specialised cosplay news media site boasting a total monthly page view of 500,000, for boosting these new cosplayers’ activities in the future.
In addition, during the contest period, the fan sending the most paid comments to eligible post entries will be presented with “The Best Fan” Award.
As of 2022, the value of the global cosplay market is estimated to be worth more than 3.6 billion USD, and its scale is expected to further increase year by year. Top class cosplayers are evaluated based on their creations, and are generally active in event participations, paid live broadcasts, meet and greet events with fans, etc.
On the other hand, in Japan occasions allowing cosplayers to present themselves are limited due to a lack of platforms allowing fans to evaluate and support their creation works. “Curecos” aims to resolve this issue as, as a platform, it allows cosplayers to submit their entries without concerns, and allows fans to support their favourite cosplayers by the means of Like! and paid comments.
This time, we are organising “#MyBestCosplay2022” to discover new cosplayers who will be entrusted with the mission to pioneer and invigorate the cosplay industry.

About Cosplay Token Project
By utilising blockchain technology, Cosplay Token Project aims at expanding cosplay token service with a mission to create new values for global cosplay communities.
COTs can hitherto be earned by uploading photos to the website of “Curecos”. It is expected that the demand for COTs would be huge for cosplayers with significant numbers of fans and countries where the penetration rates of credit cards remain low.
The project aims for not just in-site COT circulation but also its circulation at thousands of events organised around the world.
