Music Rights With NFTs – Is it a Good Idea?

2021.10.09

You needed to spend millions to purchase an artist’s catalogue to reap the rewards of getting paid every time a song is played. Justin Blau, who is an electronic music artist, and JD Ross, who is cofounder of homebuying startup Opendoor, will take theOct the duo announced a new platform. You had to spend millions to purchase an artist’s catalogue for so long, to receive a good return. A cofounder of home buying startup, Opendoor, are looking to change that and make investing in music accessible to everyone. The Duo launched a new platform on Oct. An investment is led by Founders Fund and Paradigm in a platform that is aiming to wed music rights with NFTs. Justin Blau is a EDM artist who plays under the name 3L, and is a cofounder of the home buying startup Opendoor. Blau launched a number of new initiatives aimed at exploring how music can monetize their work through crypto markets. It hopes to allow people to own music with beats made by hit producer Timbaland, Mike WiLL Made It, and others. A product called Upstream is enabled by it. The music industry was built on selling products by the million. We are reluctantly forced to a playcount business by streaming. Everyone is still trying to figure out the model. However, NFTs are welcome to return to the music selling business, however, of a new nature.

 

 

Invest Early on and Earn Royalties As an Artist Grows in Popularity:

It is a good idea to invest in an artist early on and earn royalties as their popularity grows, while also allowing them to cash in onIn an interview with Yahoo Finance, Blau stated, I believed it would be great if fans could own their favorite artists and have music shared. In the end artists are what make artists popular, so why not allow fans to participate in the upside of an artist’s career as they grow?The business model created a community effect that is hard to replicate. The listener is shared by music.  Music is added to playlists by them, and dances are made by him. The idea is to invest early on and earn royalties as an artist grows in popularity by allowing them to cash in on streaming revenue rights for songs. I would like it if music could be coowned by fans with their favorite artists, Blau told Yahoo Finance. Fans are the ones making artists popular.  Why not allow fans to enjoy the upside of an artist’s career as they grow?Story Blau created a community effect that is hard to replicate, and he said the business model created that community effect too. Seven million dollars of cryptocurrency. Royal has been dumping hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cryptocurrencies into community NFT projects like CryptoPunks and Bored Apes. Many platforms have emerged and matured to simplify the process of monetizing their art. A seed round of $16 million in Royal is led by Paradigm and Founders Fund, with participation from Atomic, where Ross was. Ross’ Opendoor cofounder, Keith Rabois, led the deal for the Founders Fund. Many details are shared about the platform’s launch or product plans.  For example when it will begin selling fractionalized assets. Currently, users able to sign up for early access at the site. Lots of speculation spawns around how regulators will eventually treat creators. Shares in their favorite songs will be sorted by fans when it is launched, and will then be received by any dividends through Upstream. As we have discussed earlier, the NFT and Crypto Economy are discussing unpredictable and risky, while most fans are more cautious, or at least cautious. One of the many aspects of crypto-trading that dissuades many people from jumping in is the responsibility factor. Upstream’s system has added more traditional investor guardrails. Crypto purists may be frightened by this but also induce more riskaverse investors to participate. Perhaps, but music is thankfully an industry geared for mass markets. Observations made in the early days of recording are remembered by NFTs today. Their songs would be performed directly into an expensive engraving machine that could only make one record at a time. Each performance was unique, just as were all recordings. I think that scarcity is acceptable. The problem is that it was not something that can turn into a profitable industry. It was tiresome for artists and the price had to be high to make it worthwhile. That is too high for most peopleTheir record was obtained from the store by modern children, like me. It was the same as millions of others, but this one was most definitely my own.

 

 

Royal will feature songs by emerging artists and stars represented by labels:

Royal will feature songs by emerging artists as well as big stars represented by labels. We would absolutely love to work with emerging artists to connect directly with fans on Royal, and jumpstart their careers.  The Active to Passive. I hope artists working with labels can enjoy that connection as well, says Blau. Music from emerging independent artists as well as stars represented by labels will be featured by Royal. We would enjoy working with emerging artists to connect directly with fans on Royal and jumpstart their careers, would be like working with emerging artists.  You can choose between active and passive. The biggest challenge may be ensuring that democratizing access to buying up music rights actually benefits the fans of those artists or creates new fans for themThat being said, there is plenty of room for improvement among the current ownership spread of music royalties, largely spread among labels, and private equity. Many technical issues surrounding cryptotechnology are being resolved, in particular, the complex technology itself seems to be increasingly complex. The partnership empowers musicians with technology to further monetize and allow fans to share in their success. As in the case with Crypto’s epoch-rating nature, philosophical questions abound, one of which is how many are thereI think Joe Sparrow. NFTs have not achieved their goals yet.
