Here’s How NFTs & Crypto Can Revolutionize The Music Industry

The interest in NFTs has grown exponentially in recent years, with NFT sales totaling $25 billion in 2021 alone, up from $95 million the previous year.

While some financial experts are skeptical about NFTs based on their volatility, it's not easy to ignore the amount of money generated through the sale of NFTs. 

How NFTs Are Changing the Music Scene 

Music NFT NFT is the acronym for Non-Fungible Token, which is a digital asset stored on a blockchain representing a digital or physical asset. Each NFT is unique and acts as proof of ownership of an asset on the blockchain. 

In the music industry, artists can create NFTs of their music, which they can then list for sale through cryptocurrency. 

A Better Way of Monetizing Their Work Over the years, artists have always been under the control of recording labels, which often get the lion's share of an artist's work.

Reducing Piracy Piracy is a big problem in the music industry and sees the industry lose millions of dollars annually. While there are laws to protect artists from piracy, they are ineffective in controlling the problem.

Artists depend on the recording label to have their music reach their fans. Besides having the record label take the lion's share of an artist's proceeds, the second downside to this approach is that there is no direct interaction between artists and their fan base.
