NFT – a new era in art selling
NFTs are non-exchangeable blockchain tokens that represent ownership of a given collectible. In practice, such solutions are used to tokenize many elements – from digital cards with images of athletes to music and other types of works of art.
Last week, the artist Beeple’s NFT token sold for $ 60 million at a special auction in Christie’s.
The premiere of their new album “When You See Yourself” was also made more attractive by the musicians of the rock band Kings of Leon from Tennessee. They announced that one of the available formats for the latest album will be NFT tokens. The digital product series has been named “NFT Yourself”.
The team issued a total of three types of tokens. The first type is a special digital release of a new album; the second offers privileges related to the group’s live performances (it is about access to places close to the stage); the third concerns exclusive audiovisual works that the band will release. Smart Contracts linked to tokens were developed by YellowHeart, a company that wants to use blockchain technology to restore value to music and better relationships between artists and their fans.
