How to Tokenize Music

The same modern streaming platforms that make digital distribution possible also pay fractions of a penny with each play. Thankfully, artists are finding new ways to engage directly with fans by selling exclusive tracks, assets, and collectibles.

How to Mint Music NFTs

As the music industry completes its migration toward digital services and streaming, one question continues to arise: How do artists get paid?

When users stream music over Spotify or other streaming apps, the artists make only fractions of a penny per play, making it difficult for many artists to survive on streaming alone. Finding out  how to mint music NFTs offers a solution to this problem by giving music lovers an exciting new choice in how to support music artists.

As an artist, minting music NFTs allows you to better control how your music is released, how it is consumed — both digitally and physically — and how you get paid. You can even add extras or add-ons that will increase the value of your NFT, as well as increase the likelihood a customer might buy one.

Digital Collectibles and Web3 with NFT Creators by Instagram

Yesterday, Instagram hosted a Twitter Space revolving around all things NFT, digital collectibles, creators’ experiences and the future of the metaverse with four NFT creators who participated in Instagram's minting platform.
