From Canvas to Chords: NFTs in Art and Music

Here’s a question for you: How can you manage all your NFT products across the various NFT marketplaces? Answer: by using Walacor’s Platform application to help your organization consolidate and track all your NFT products with one single, secure source!   

Currently, in 2024, this is how your NFTs are created and managed in the marketplaces:

Artists create digital files (images, videos, etc.) that they want to sell or tokenize. They then convert this digital asset into an NFT by minting it on a blockchain on a marketplace, such as OpenSea, Rarible, or Mintable. This process involves creating a unique token on the blockchain that represents the ownership and authenticity of the digital file. These NFTs are typically built on blockchain platforms like Ethereum or Binance Smart Chain. Smart contracts are self-executing contracts with terms written directly into code. In the context of art NFTs, they contain information about the digital asset, ownership details, and rules for transactions. Artists can set the price, specify the number of editions (if limited), and receive royalties for subsequent resales. When someone purchases an NFT, the smart contract automatically transfers ownership to the buyer.

Musicians can tokenize their music, album artwork, or related digital content as NFTs. This can include unique audio files, digital albums, concert footage, or other digital assets associated with the music. Music artists can then list their NFTs on platforms like Mintbase and Audius to help facilitate the creation and sale of music NFTs, reaching a global audience of collectors and fans. Smart contracts embed details such as ownership, royalty distribution, and usage rights directly into the NFT. Musicians can receive a percentage of sales every time the NFT changes hands in the secondary market, ensuring ongoing compensation for their work. NFTs provide a way to prove ownership and authenticity of digital music files, helping to combat piracy and unauthorized distribution.

Artists and musicians considering using NFTs as one of their products should be aware of the many options and choose a platform that aligns with their values. The Walacor Platform can bridge the gap between these marketplaces by allowing you to connect and manage all your NFTs in one location. If you have different types of NFTs (for example, art and music) in your portfolio placed across multiple marketplaces (for example, OpenSea and Mintbase), your data can exist in the Walacor Platform. The Walacor Platform will host your NFTs in a secure environment that you can trust. You will no longer have to log in to multiple marketplaces to track your NFTs. If one of the marketplaces should ever go offline, copies of your pertinent NFT data and transaction history will always be available for you.
