10 Innovative Web3 Music Products for Musicians Beyond the Traditional

By Dwight Miller - May 9, 2024

In my last post, I explained how a music Nft was different from a crypto Nft. A music Nft is a non-fungible token but the NFT’s role in music is to mint the NFT on the blockchain.

By minting your music on the blockchain, you ensure that you are the owner/creator of the music, and your ownership can be easily identified on the blockchain. You can create a direct relationship with fans and maintain control over how your music is licensed and used.

Currently every musician has only three (3) products to sell, Streaming (which pays so little Snoop and Taylor Swift complain) merchandise and live performance. A musician can’t stand on a stage and say to their audience “Go to the record store” and look for my new album or single.

If you’re a web3 musician, you have many different products you can create and here are a few of them with suggested retail prices.
