2.   Tokenization of Music: Tokenize music assets through NFTs, enabling artists to retain ownership rights, track royalties transparently, and create unique experiences for fans.

3.   Creating NFT Collections: Curate NFT collections of exclusive music content, such as unreleased tracks, concert recordings, and digital merchandise, to offer fans unique ownership experiences and access to limited-edition content.

4.   Monetizing Livestreams because you are always: Host Livestream concerts and events on decentralized platforms, where fans can purchase tickets or access exclusive content using cryptocurrency. Utilize blockchain-based ticketing systems to ensure transparency and prevent scalping.
