How musicians can benefit from NFTs

How is the conversion of music into NFTs beneficial for artists?

  • Suppose you are an artist and you sold a record as an NFT. Now, if the current owner sells it further, you can earn a percentage commission in every next transaction. It was never possible earlier. The built-in royalties, functioned by Smart Contracts, is favourable for the artists.
  • Unlike the labels, artists get the liberty to design their own NFTs.
  • With the absence of a third party, the artists can sell NFTs in the form of concert tickets, digital content, music, merchandise, etc. and earn a significant amount through the auctions.
  • The NFT marketplace also provides an easy hold of the global market for the artists to interact with their fans.
  • NFTs, being more flexible and convenient, enables the artist to create more and bring more earning opportunities.
