NFTs may affect a wide range of industries. In shaping the future of music, NFTs are expected to prove particularly transformative. Music NFTs include songs, albums, music, lyrics, and soundbites. Kings of Leon released their first album as an NFT last year. Using jpg or gif formats, music can even be incorporated into digital art to create unique pieces of artwork. The Lostboy NFT collective, for example, combines music and art and focuses on mental health.

The Music NFT Market was estimated at USD 1240.3 million in 2021 and is forecast to reach a market value of USD 42,380.2 million by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 27.52 %.

For decades, musicians have been underpaid. Singers and musicians are particularly affected due to this. An entertainer gets 50% of the revenue split, while agents, lawyers, and distributors get 40%. Musicians using streaming services fare even worse. Most of Spotifys top 0.8% earn less than $50,000 in streaming revenue.


In NFTs, musicians are more likely to be fairly compensated. Linkin Parks Mike Shinoda raised about $11,000 for his first NFT. According to Shinoda, "With NFTs, the early figures will speak for themselves." Even if singers upload the full version of the songs to DSPs worldwide, they would never receive anything close to $10k after fees from the labels and labels, the DSP, and the label marketing."

NFTs that are upgradeable can evolve and mutate over time. Using this method, musicians can release a soundtrack, chorus, or bridge that fans and collaborators can use legally while bypassing the legal complexities of legally creating remixes. Upgradeable NFTs allow the original creator to retain control of the spin-off creation and even profit from it.

Music NFT Collectors are taking advantage of scarcity appeals. 

The appeals to scarcity opportunities are limitless with NFTs. Live Stubs are NFTs that fans can receive free when they purchase concert tickets from Live Nation, the worlds largest music event organizer. With Live Stubs, they can reminisce about collecting ticket stubs while giving artists a new way to connect with their fans. As such, Live Stubs and NFTs become rare collectibles that will appreciate in value over time and can be resold legally.

NFT marketplace FanTiger, which is run by ArtistFirst Technology Inc. raised $5.4 million in a seed funding round led by Multicon Capital.

The round also saw participation from Krafton, GAMA, Woodstock Fund, Pravega Ventures, IOSG Ventures, Polygon Studios, and individuals including Sandeep Nailwal (Co-Founder of Polygon), Prashant Malik (Founder - Tykhe Block Ventures), Gokul Rajaram (Board Member - Coinbase), and Miten Sampat (CRED). Independent artists who join the FanTiger Network are able to build fan communities on FanTiger and enable their fans to help shape their careers. Songs, studio productions, and music videos can all be created using music NFTs. A portion of the royalty earned from the song can also be contributed to the fan community.


Music NFTs are anticipated to make their way across the world during the forecast period.

Many efforts were made by business ventures involving household names that lent their stamp of approval to non-profit organizations much like they would license music for car commercials. Everyone from venture capitalists to respected multimedia artists has argued that the technology can also save independent music. Although NFTs have been hailed as a potential revolution in the music industry, let alone the world, little has been accomplished so far by their most enthusiastic advocates.

Even so, America bet on NFTs like lottery ticket purchasers, and the music industry has been particularly lucky. Despite debacles like HitPieces sale of unauthorized NFTs, other communities, such as those around Los Angeles boutique label Leaving Records, NFT technology could be harnessed for the betterment of the public. In the future, NFTs would be a common way to release music, just like uploading your songs to Spotify or selling a record via Bandcamp.
