Darkblock is thrilled to announce our latest partnership with Cardinal, a rental protocol on Solana. The collaboration plans to bring rentable, unlockable content to the NFT community. The immediate use case for NFT rental will be the rental of 1 of 1 content like art and metaverse assets. Long term, our vision is to facilitate wide-spread rental of content. Music, podcasts, video content, and subscription to content feeds are the natural market for this service.
This past weekend at South by Southwest (SXSW), Darkblock hosted an 8-hour SXSW day show with performances by Peelander-Z, Mr. Lewis & The Funeral 5, Thee Idylls, and many more. Over 900 people attended between in-person guests, YouTube Live streamers, and our metaverse venue provided by Spatial and ISOBLOCK! This was the only VR, live streamed, and in-person party held during SXSW 2022.
