This Week in Music NFTs - July 4
Free and affordable mints. Billboard coverage. Protocol teasers. Music NFT Summer continues.
Minting behaviors are changing.
High stigmas around “dropping” Music NFTs are shifting as more artists are minting with less pressure.
The most concrete examples are free and affordable mints on Zora’s new edition platform - highlighted by artists like Mija, Reo Cragun, Peter Saputo and Alec King.
In a market where liquidity is scarce, getting more collectors on board at lower price points is more important than finding someone willing to shell out a couple ETH.
Paired with growing usage around new Music NFT players like Spinamp we’re slowly starting to see organic discovery come into the fold.
With that said - this summer is shaping up to be a pivotal moment for some of the spaces biggest players.
Expect leading artists to push the needle on taking their collector base to the next level - namely through custom sites, generative drops, mint passes and airdrops.
This comes with a teaser of Catalog Protocol - asking everyone what’s next for the sector’s leading 1/1 marketplace.
Wrap it all together and you’ll notice that both sides of the spectrum are searching for the right formula.
For the collectors, builders and operators reading this - it’s up to you to help this happen.
If you see a playbook that inspires you - tell your favorite artist.
Web3 is positive sum. If DeFi taught us anything, it’s that the space thrives when we build in tandem - sharing ideas, insights and contracts to create stronger foundations.
Music NFTs are no different.
