The LimeWire marketplace launch is here with verified artists on board. They include Travis Barker, Brandy, Nicky Jam, Dillon Francis, and more.
The first available NFT collection launching on LimeWire is from 7 Aurelius, launching July 7. The initial set of collections represents a wide range of content on LimeWire. They include original tracks and artworks and in-person experiences like backstage passes or meet-and-greets with artists. The platform aims to be the place where collectors can purchase exclusive and unreleased music, video content, and digital artwork.
“I have always been interested in web3 and NFTs so I am pretty stoked to release my first NFT collection and to do it on LimeWire,” says Travis Barker about his collection. “I hope that my NFT collection will inspire aspiring artists and fans who want to learn about my creative journey and how I make music. LimeWire has created a platform that makes exciting content like this accessible to all of my fans.”
LimeWire says it is committed to lowering the barrier for entry into the NFT ecosystem for both artists and collectors. That includes stripping away technical hurdles and introducing a simple user experience with a mainstream-ready approach.
“We see a huge demand in the entertainment space for platforms that recognize and appreciate artists for their talent and put them in the driver’s seat,” says Paul and Julian Zehetmayr, LimeWire Co-CEOs. “LimeWire represents a new commercial opportunity for artists of all sizes and genres to engage with their fans, gain more exposure in a unique way and retain more of their earnings.”
Other artists joining the platform include A$AP Mob’s A$AP TyY, CJ Fly, Ortise, Mollow, Luciana, Blacka Di Danca, Samuel Herb, Idalia Valles, Stefano Manrique, David Asante, DJ Monday, BXB LOVE, Noah Jvmes, and many more.
