California-based music streaming platform Audius has launched a new feature that allows artists and fans to post non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to various blogs and social media platforms such as Twitter and Discord.
The “built-in” functionality aims to improve the fan experience for musicians by implementing NFT and integrating with Web 3.0. To activate this feature, artists must link their Audius accounts to Phantom Wallet, a cryptocurrency wallet powered by the Solana ecosystem. With the aim of increasing the number of Solana NFT discoveries, the company stated:
“NFT holders can post their holdings from the two largest blockchain groups on Twitter charts, personal blogs, and websites. With this new feature, collectibles will continue to advance into the mainstream.”
The blockchain-powered music streaming platform caters to popular artists including Katy Perry, Nas and The Chainsmokers, and its user base quadrupled in 2021.
While social media platforms allow JPEGs, the built-in feature provided by Audius displays NFT metadata that artists can use to promote and sell their talent.
