Comments are off for this post.
Both hip-hop and fashion industries have been at the forefront from the very start of the massive web3 transformation. However, the renowned celebrity Kanye West, a prominent representative of both areas, has been showing no interest in the global trend, until now. Even back in January 2022, he posted a handwritten note on his Instagram saying: “Do not ask me to do a f*cking NFT” (he added, “Ask me later”). But, according to released documents Kanye West is not that much against NFTs and other web3 initiatives. On the contrary, he’s about to get into some. Thus, on May 27th, […]

Comments are off for this post.
Being a creator in the NFT ecosystem is daunting, especially when you’re just getting started. Although a firm understanding of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain technology can certainly help artists succeed, those are tiny pieces of a much larger puzzle. There are also things like pricing, copyright, and community building to consider — and that’s just the beginning of the list. Sadly, there’s no comprehensive roadmap that can guide musicians through the entire NFT process. And as the ecosystem continues to grow and evolve, things are only getting worse. This guide to music NFTs is intended to answer this need. […]

The goal of Chaos is to create 45 songs to be released as an NFT collection totaling over 20,000 unique tokens. Transforming this Web3 music camp from an idea into a reality seems to have been anything but clear cut. Billed as a headless band, […]

Comments are off for this post.
It’s no secret that the music industry’s business models don’t benefit most artists. According to the 2018 MIRA Survey of Musicians, musicians in the United States have a median annual income of less than $25,000 per year. If that’s not damning enough, 61 percent of musicians say the income they receive from their music isn’t enough to meet their cost of living.  The problem? Major labels and streaming services take the lion’s share of the revenue, eating a sizable portion of artists’ earnings. According to Statista, Spotify generated more than $10 billion in revenue in 2021. However, they only pay […]

Comments are off for this post.
One of the world’s top-ranking guitar manufacturers, Fender, is about to enter the web3 realm. The three NFT-related patent requests filed to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) evidence that perfectly. However, this initiative is more about Fender’s intellectual property protection, especially its guitar models, rather than jumping into NFTs. Thus, according to the trademark attorney Mike Kondoudis’ tweet, Fender has submitted a series of trademark applications concerning its headstock shape in potential NFT products, including artworks, photographs, videos, and “audio recordings featuring music and musical instruments”. It’s noteworthy that this filing is already the second Fender’s attempt […]
