NFTs have entered almost all areas, including movies (and anime), art, gaming, real estate, and music. Non-fungible tokens have become more popular by the day, and we’re on the verge of assuming that their cases are almost limitless.
Indeed, when blockchain technology became known to the world, the most common thing was to buy Bitcoin or Ethereum from an exchange like Binance – and this is still a viable solution if you want to remain only in the crypto sphere.
But if you crave diversifying your portfolio, consider adventuring into the world of NFTs. These tokens have been around for quite a while, that’s true, but the diversity which characterizes them today can’t go unnoticed. From art, video game items, and photography to domain names, collectible items, big sports moments, and music,
NFTs have come in the form of almost anything passing through your mind. And yes, you heard it right – NFTs are providing exclusive rights to music-related images.
That’s quite a revolution in the music industry, and experts predict it could completely change its trajectory. In other words, artists found new ways to ‘make their voice heard’, keep connections with their fanbases, and monetize their work.
As a result, hundreds of music NFT projects have come to see the daylight, and we’re going to discuss some of the most standout ones. And no, this is not to urge you to buy but more to emphasize the most prominent projects from the pack.
