We are building a two-sided music digital collectible marketplace that democratizes access to web3 for musicians and their fans. We are passionate about helping musicians - especially long-tail, independent, and emerging musicians - and using web3 to build community and monetize creative IP.
Fans pay with credit cards and musicians get paid in fiat, and we take care of contract creation and NFT minting on the backend. On the platform, musicians sell exclusive access to works in progress, behind the scenes footage, demos, and other content related to the creative process.
We’ve built out a beta web app on polygon with a custodial wallet system, demonstrating proof of concept with 5 test drops and 2 exclusive releases which have sold out. We have 200+ musicians in our pipeline, and 22 already on the platform. We’ve spent $0 on marketing or advertising, and we just stood up our discord server.
We have 87 users on the platform, with all traffic thus far driven by musicians. We’ve had 70 unique purchasers so far, with 17% of fans who visit artist drop pages make a purchase on the platform. We aim to have 200 users by then end of June.
We want to support our musicians, and many of them have expressed strong desire to mint with harmony. We want to give musicians the option to use polygon or harmony. As we do with polygon, we intend to build a custodial wallet system in harmony and allow non-crypto native musicians and fans to engage with token-gated content which are gated by ownership of NFTs minted on harmony.
