It’s the biggest day for LimeWire so far - we just launched our marketplace today with the first collections lined up. Travis Barker, Brandy, Nicky Jam, Aitch, Dillon Francis, FitLit Club featuring Jim Jones, Maino, Dave East and Fabolous, Gramatik, 7 Aurelius and Elijah Blake will be dropping exclusive NFT collections on the LimeWire marketplace in the coming weeks. The first available collection is from 7 Aurelius on July 7th. Make sure you sign up for LimeWire, set up your payment options and wait for those drops.
“I have always been interested in Web3 and NFTs so I am pretty stoked to release my first NFT collection and to do it on LimeWire. I hope that my NFT collection will inspire aspiring artists and fans who want to learn about my creative journey and how I make music. LimeWire has created a platform that makes exciting content like this accessible to all of my fans - even ones who are unfamiliar with Web3,” said Travis Barker.
The initial set of collections represents the wide range of content available on LimeWire, from original tracks to artworks, as well as content with in-person experiences such as backstage passes or meet-and-greets and in Travis Barker’s case, a real drum kit. On LimeWire, collectors are able to purchase exclusive and unreleased music, video content and digital artwork in the same way they would collect a rare painting or buy a limited edition vinyl of a song.
“I am so happy to be partnering with the Probably Nothing team to launch my spoken word and Photosynthesis Flower NFT on Limewire. NFTs have become such a big part of culture and this project allows me to connect with my fans on a whole new level,” said Brandy.
We are committed to lowering the barrier to entry into the NFT ecosystem for both artists and collectors new to the space by stripping away technical hurdles, radically simplifying user experience on the marketplace and with an overall mainstream-ready approach. Music fans can sign up at limewire.com to gain access to the LimeWire marketplace ahead of collection launches and make payments easily via credit cards or crypto currencies.
“We see a huge demand in the entertainment space for platforms that recognise and appreciate artists for their talent and put them in the driver’s seat,” said Paul and Julian Zehetmayr, LimeWire Co-CEOs. “LimeWire presents a new commercial opportunity for artists of all sizes and genres to engage with their fans, gain more exposure in a unique way and retain more of their earnings.”
Other artists joining the platform include A$AP Mob’s A$AP TyY, CJ Fly, Oritsé, Mollow, Luciana, Blacka Di Danca, Samuel Herb, Idalia Valles, Stefano Manrique, David Asante, DJ Monday, BXB LOVE, Noah Jvmes, A-SHO, PERFXN, Rossi. and more.
