NFTs connect music communities of different genres and blockchain ecosystems

A new NFT drop featuring music industry icons such as Snoop Dogg and Billy Ray Cyrus is bringing together music communities from across the genre spectrum, as well as blockchain networks.

Non-fungible tokens are at the forefront of the Web3 with utility capabilities and community building being the priorities. A new collection from the Mint NFT marketplace and metaverse entertainment platform Animal Concerts does this across the musical genre spectrum and blockchain networks.

The line, “A Hard Working Man,” combines hip-hop star Snoop Dogg with country music legends the Avila Brothers and Billy Ray Cyrus to present a collection of clothes. The collection includes digital artwork and in-person events to make a memorable first-time impression.

Animal Concerts founder and CEO Colin Fitzpatrick said that the “existing fandom” of all three artists involved in the collection “is a real strength.” Web3 provides these communities the opportunity to evolve.

The new Minted Launchpad platform will debut cross-genre collaboration.

According to the theme of cross-genre collaborations, Minted Launchpad allows users to produce, acquire, and exchange NFTs on both the Ethereum and Cronos blockchains. NFT will also be minted at the end of Q4 2022 in a select number of cases.

Minted’s director Matt Wan said:

Minted users active on the launchpad platform will also be able to browse digital asset collections from both ecosystems. ‘A Hard Working Man’ was initially announced in April, with additional collaboration with Cointelegraph for the artwork.

Even as a supporter of cryptocurrency, Snoop Dogg has been involved in the NFT industry. His Bored Ape Yacht Club avatars have been used in a music video.

NFTs have satisfied the needs of fans across various genres, including opera, classical music and country music, by providing a Dollyverse.

An example of a Web3 tool that can transform listeners and fans into an active ecosystem is the use of music NFTs to cross genres and countries. However, this cross-genre and cross-country collaboration highlights how Web3 tools can unite fan bases that are normally exclusive to their particular genres and countries, producing new communities.
