DistroKid launches ‘Sellouts’ NFTs for 9,999 indie artists
DYI music distributor DistroKid has partnered with Nifty Gateway to launch 9,999 NFTs for independent musicians who will earn money every time their NFT is bought or sold.
Each carbon-offset NFT in the Sellouts collection shows the DistroKid mascot customized with more than 300 traits (hair, expression, eyewear, clothes, and more) holding the album cover of a participating creator.
Each NFT will have a URL and page devoted to that NFT, where buyers & anyone can listen to the music of that artist. Also, each artist is given the opportunity to write about their music, what makes it special to them, and offer any perks to NFT owners.
