Why is this great for the artist?

A New Limited/Special Product to Offer. The album is paired with an NFT to prove the limited quantity. The artist chooses how many are pressed.

Royalties From Used/Resale. Since the transaction happens on the blockchain, each sale moves through a smart contract that can reward the artist and the seller.

Fan Connections. Since the transaction is on the blockchain, the owner is always registered.

Anti-counterfeiting. With the album registered on the blockchain, an attempted counterfeit is easy to spot.

Offer as an NFT or vinyl album. The artist can choose to sell it as an NFT in a marketplace or as a vinyl album at merch tables, websites, or stores. Read more on selling methods.

Why music fans love this...

Unique Limited Collectibles. The limited number of the album is verifiable on the blockchain, making these collectibles truly unique.

Proof of Authenticity. Each album is unique and can be verified.

Proof of Ownership. The buyer of the album is registered, allowing them to demonstrate ownership. New purchasers can have confidence in their transactions.
