Musicians Meet Audio NFTs

RAC’s first Audio NFT, Elephant Dreams.

What is an Audio NFT?

Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are unique digital collectibles, represented on a blockchain like Ethereum in the form of a token. What makes NFTs interesting is that each token is distinguishable from one another, meaning no two tokens are exactly the same.

Anyone can take a picture of the Mona Lisa, but only one person owns it. We can think of NFTs exactly the same way, with the underlying token proving ownership of that digital good.

Now, where this gets interesting is the interplay of an audio/visual experience.

Key Takeaways

While each of these artists have cultivated their own vision and ambitions around each piece, its worth highlighting their similarities.

First Drop

You only get to drop your first NFT once.

Tell a Story

While one-off pieces certainly have their place, those released as a part of a cohesive series create a wider vision around the experience and the interplay between individual pieces.

Whales are Friends

It takes a very special kind of buyer to drop thousands of dollars on digital art.

Where to Start

Using SuperRare, NiftyGateway, Rarible, OpenSea, KnownOrigin, MakersPlace and others, creators can easily create their own AudioNFTs by uploading a supported file type and paying a fee (depending on the platform) to mint (or create) the token representing the Audio NFT.

Closing Thoughts

Those willing to embrace web3 primitives like Audio NFTs still benefit from being seen as an innovator.
