Frontman ZZ Top launches NFT music on the Cardano network
Also, a music legend from the rock band ZZ Top, frontman Billy Gibbons, chose Cardano’s blockchain to release his freshly played pieces in the form of NFT.
The auction at which these NFTs went on sale took place over the weekend on the Terra Virtua platform for digital collectibles.
By the end of the auction, bidders had to pay with either a Fiat or an ADA coin – a native cryptocurrency of Cardano blockchain.
Billy Gibbons believes that blockchain offers great opportunities for the music and arts industries, and one of them is the launch of the NFT.
Asset tokenization has only recently begun, yet interest in the NFT is growing, as anyone with access to a digital wallet can buy it. Have you ever considered buying an NFT?
