The voice from the East

This is how the story began…

Throughout Chinese history, the tiger is always associated with ‘yang’ – positivity. It symbolises strength, dignity, and courage.

Chi in Chinese means energy flow. Also known as a vital life force, it flows through each of us, uniting the body, mind, and spirit.

Therefore, Tiger Chi is full of energy, and embodies the spirit of taking challenges and adventures in life.

Why here and why now?

Algorand is one of the greenest blockchains on this planet, and it has been designed from the ground up, to minimally impact the environment. We love our mother earth, and we wish that all beautiful creatures can live harmoniously here. Thus, we hope to raise awareness of our environment and endangered species. Together with Algorand, we are committed to making our project sustainable.


According to Chinese zodiac signs, 2022 is the year of the Tiger.  In 2022, the 1circle community wishes to grow alongside Algorand. Tiger Chi is making its debut around Chinese new year time. It is the first-ever, Chinese, tiger-themed NFT project. A new adventure for 1circle and our young, talented, artist Yangyang on the Algorand ecosystem.

Why should you be part of us?

tigerchi NFT

Limited edition

Only 888 tigers are uniquely minted in this collection. In ancient Chinese mythology, there are five color types of tigers that hold the balance of cosmic forces and maintain harmony. We incorporated this into our design and gave them a rarity.


Long term focus

It is a sustainable project which means we aim to establish a DAO eventually, and empower NFT holders with exclusive rights. Holding a Tiger Chi NFT is just the beginning.


Social responsibility

A portion of our sales will go to Tigers4ever charity to give tigers a wild future. We will also raise funds by holding dedicated auction sessions.
