Why Music NFTs?

What’s the difference in marketing your music in conventional ways (streaming, social media, etc.) to music nfts and web3?

It takes about ONE MILLION streams to earn $3.000. It takes 60 NFTs sold at $50 to achieve the same result.

NFTs are like vinyls, but digital. It’s an asset that contains music in limited edition and can be bought and sold multiple times on the secondary market.

Music collectors and true fans are willing to pay more for singles and albums sold as a digital collectibles. NFTs (unlike vinyls) are not perishable, making them the ultimate collectible item.

For the music fan: Blockchain technology allows for certified digital ownership and provenance, making scams and fakes impossible.
For the musician: Music NFTs are sold directly form the musician to the collector, without middlemen, making stronger fan-artist relationships.

The Music NFT market is still developing, which means that competition is lower than traditional markets.
Now is the ideal time to get started and become one of the first artists to embrace the possibilities of the new internet and all of its potential.

Buying music NFTs directly from their favorite musicians is a great way for fans to support an artist’s career in its early stages.
As the artist grows, there’s also the potential of earning a profit by re-selling their limited edition early releases, which may increase in value.
Fans can now show they were there first and gain from their good taste in music!

For artists, Music NFTs are a great way to incentivize fandom. Tradability and liquidity makes it more attractive to invest in an asset initially since it can be passed on. With each sale artists earn royalties for a sustainable stream of revenue.

Musicians: You just need to make music, we’ll teach you the rest.

1-1 Assessment Call

We are looking for dedicated, and passionate artists excited to explore a new form of music monetization.

What makes our academy different?

Here’s why past students say it’s worth far beyond its price:

The course consists of 8 modules taught in live video classes. One class lasts between 1.5 – 2 hours. 

Direct call with one of our tutors before and after the course to make sure you’re taken care of. 

Our tutors have first-hand experience and have been working in the space for several years. Our team is made up of innovators involved from the very beginning. Nifty Sax was one of the first people to ever create a music NFT collection. There are only few people with experience as extensive as among our team. 

Our tutors take time to answer all questions individually. There is always a section in the online classes for all questions to get answered. This makes the learning progress much faster as there is always someone available to help out. 

Nifty Music sold out all their collections in collaboration with their artists. The strategies we teach are proven to work in the market.

The goal of the course is to know how to sell music as NFTs and to successfully release individual collections. With our methods artists will be able to make up the course fee and gain much more in future sales. 

There are plenty of opportunities to network within our academy, whether it’s inside the online classes or within the Nifty Music community. Networking as a musician is key. We provide an environment where dozens of musicians are chatting and collaborating every day. 

Our main priority is to provide a safe environment for all artists we work with. Without guidance people tend to make mistakes often resulting in financial loss. Our team has experience in all areas in the crypto sector and knows how to maintain a safe experience throughout all stages. 

The relationship doesn’t just end with the completion of the course. We make sure to support artists with any questions they might be facing managing their first projects. 

We provide all artists with advice on our evaluation of the current market situation. This is very helpful and important for planning any projects and releases.

Our team are artists, content creators, and entrepreneurs. We offer our artists relevant material, such as guides, or informative content even after the course ended.

A problem and a solution for musicians and fans

The music industry is finally shifting with the help of innovation and technology, but especially artists claiming back their control

Artist sovereignity
Control 100%

The music industry has undergone significant changes in recent years. 

For artists, there is now a new avenue for creative and financial independence through modern technology. The artist-driven approach of the new music industry prioritizes ownership, transparency, and self-sovereignty, giving artists control over their creative decisions and career direction while offering innovative ways for fans to participate.

Independent musicians lacking the financial support of labels require sustainable career options beyond relying on streaming and live shows. One promising solution for indie musicians seeking career success are digital collectibles.

Who’s behind Nifty Music?

Milo Lombardi

Founder

Nifty Sax is Milo Lombardi, award-winning saxophonist, composer and Music Director.

My success in web3 inspired me to co-found Nifty Music, a music NFT incubator helping fellow artists create their own successful projects (Moonshot, Love Letters, Rae’s Rock Collection etc.).
Nifty Music projects generated over $1 million in music NFT sales, collectively.

I have been on-boarding fellow music creators to web3 since early 2021 and our Nifty Music Academy, an 8-week music NFT course, is one of the best music NFT educational platforms out there, with an incredibly high success rate of our students.

Releasing music on the blockchain and innovating in web3 feels like the culmination of my career as an artist.
I have found my home, my friends and my mission.

Nik Cosmo

Artist Relations

I’m an artist and musician and got passionate about the crypto space a few years ago.

The experience I gained from the early NFT days eventually led me to Music NFTs, where I gave my music career a new trajectory.

I quickly established a community around my artistic pursuits and realized the significance of this innovative approach to earning from music while growing a community.

The project of Nifty Music, including the curriculum we offer at the academy, extends and builds on my artistic vision. Since I entered the crypto world, I have been enthusiastic about educating and assisting people in exploring new technology and its possibilities.

At Nifty Music, we prioritize the artist and provide comprehensive training, which resonates with me. Nifty music is an excellent platform for my artistic, forward-thinking, and entrepreneurial spirit to prosper.

Fifi Rong

Curator

Joining the Nifty Music team was a logical extension of my own trajectory as an avant-pop and artist and producer in both web2 and web3.

Nifty Music’s vision—revolutionizing how artists monetize their work and sustain their careers through blockchain technology—resonates strongly with me. With a unique vantage point of being fluent in both traditional and decentralized digital landscapes, I find myself particularly aligned with the company’s forward-thinking ethos.

While the Nifty Music Academy serves as an educational arm, it’s the overarching vision of Nifty Music that captivates me the most. This broader blueprint for redefining artist success is both compelling and in sync with my own aspirations.

In my role on the team, I contribute my extensive community building and music industry experiences. This provides me the opportunity to make real changes and help fellow artists adapt and excel in this rapidly evolving ecosystem.

Why did I leave my comfort zone and I go all in on Web3?

simple, it’s the most asymmetrical bet in modern history. Everything in this space will need to be reinvented, adapted. There are too many opportunities not to jump in with all the clothes on. Freedom, innovation, believers, hunger for a better future, all critical ingredients to success.

As a serial IRL entrepreneur and content creator, I couldn’t hope for anything better

but why NiftyMusic?

The brightest minds of web3 found a home and a place to thrive in this amazing community.

Life is an opportunity, and I am determined to take full advantage of it.

And you?

We answered some of your questions

NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token.

It simply means that it’s an item that is unique.

For example:

  • A dollar bill is Fungible: if we exchange one for another, it doesn’t matter which dollar you have; they’re all equal.
  • A painting is Non-Fungible: a painting is unique and we cannot be exchanged for another. There will always be only one original painting and only one person can own it. All the other versions of the painting are simply copies of the original.

NFTs refer to digital items that obtain uniqueness through blockchain technology. This technology certifies both the origin of the item (who created it) and the owner (who currently holds it).

So, a Music NFT is just like an mp3, but more advanced.

  1. NFTs are the access pass to an artist’s ecosystem. For example, access to the music, livestreams, community chat, or other perks only holders of the NFT get.
  2. 1.NFTs can have multiple versions, with different artwork or audio, each with their own unique identification number, recorded permanently on the blockchain, which is an immutable record.
  3. While mp3s of a single song are infinite, NFTs are scarce and collectible. For example, a single song can be published in a limited supply of 100 unique copies, just like a vinyl but more advanced.
  4. The technology behind NFTs allows for new, “smart” ways of automating the distribution process. For example, a song in NFT form can be sold again and again after the initial purchase. Every time a sale happens, royalties can automatically be distributed to each writer and contributor of the song.
  5. NFTs are forever tradable. The market price will be determined by the collective perceived value of the artist and the song, meaning that a particular song could increase and decrease in value over time, just like paintings do. That’s why collectors sometimes treat NFTs as “investments”.

The blockchain is a secure digital ledger that records and verifies transactions. It’s like a decentralized database spread across many computers, making it reliable and difficult to tamper with. It ensures transparency and trust in digital transactions and ownership.

There exist several blockchains out there. NFTs are primarily hosted on the Ethereum blockchain. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is the original and most widely-known digital currency. Ethereum, meanwhile, is the preferred blockchain for creating various applications and integrations for the internet.

NFTs are based on a smart contract, which is like a self-executing digital agreement. Once the terms are set, they cannot be modified or altered by any third party, ensuring transparency and security in ownership and transactions.

Like with any technology involving money, there are also false players in the crypto field. While regulation is still minimal and applications new, it opens up potential opportunities for scammers to make use of the early stage environment. However, with the right knowledge and general rules to follow, you will be able to spot any potential red flags. Part of our course prioritizes safety in web3. 

There is no need for you to bring any technical background or knowledge. We take care of all the technicalities, and our artists focus on making music, learning about the web3 environment, and crafting their project. 

Our track record show that if artists follow the approach we teach, they are guaranteed to sell their first NFTs. Every collection that has been released through Nifty Music has sold out; and we launched some of the largest to date. However, there is no magic receipe, but the formula to success is being carried by the artist through dedication and passion.  

The course should leave you with extensive knowledge and suited up to explore the web3 music environment on your own. (Or together with all the musicians you networked with along the way). Especially the early rounds of the academy course will receive special benefits, which include educational materials, further guidance and support, and access to the Nifty Music community. We make sure we stay connected with our artists and provide a platform for them to connect, learn, and have fun. 

Our course is targeted to beginners. There is no prior knowledge about cryptocurrencies necessary. Although the NFT, and crypto space are connected, there is only very basic knowledge required in order to navigate your way around the market. The modules we teach also focus on the general understanding of the crpyto field in relevance to Music NFTs. 

The price for NFTs depend on the crypto market, since cryptocurrencies like Ethereum fluctuate in value. The price an artist sets for their NFTs could either go up or down depending on the market. However, the price is also influenced by the demand for your project, which is generally stronger when the crypto market is trending upwards. The more demand, the higher the price. 

The best way to get in touch is to contact us through this website by either filling out the form or scheduling a call. 

The Music NFT environment is largely hosted on Twitter (X) at the moment. However, as the space matures, other social media platforms will become more relevant. The web3 music community on Twitter is still small and the advantage of being early is one of the first striking aspects of getting involved.
