The music industry has undergone significant changes over the years, with the rise of digital platforms and streaming services transforming the way musicians distribute and monetize their work. Now, blockchain technology is threatening to usher in a new revolution.

Musicians have discovered that NFTs offer a perfect vehicle to sell their music directly to fans, bypassing traditional industry structures and giving themselves the opportunity to explore new Web3-native business models. With NFTs, musicians can create unique digital assets that represent their music, such as albums or individual tracks, which their fans can then buy and collect. This gives fans an opportunity to support their favorite artists in a new way and, because they own a piece of the music, they’re more invested in the success of that artist, all of which creates a more meaningful relationship between musicians and their fans.

Last month, we at Darkblock did a deep dive into Literary NFTs and how authors were harnessing Web3 technology to sell their books to fans. It was such a success, that we decided to do it again—this time with music. Throughout March, we’ll explore how musicians are using NFTs and Web3 technology to find new ways to engage with fans and make a living from their work.

Here’s the schedule of Twitter Spaces and YouTube livestreams as of now. It will be updated throughout the month.
