“We view this project as a way for visual artists that work on music videos to get residual income from their work, this is a new blueprint for visual artists in the music industry,” Gruben explained.
The NFT music video debuted in Decentraland inside a digital movie theater in the Metaverse with attendees gifted digital wearables at the Limewire-sponsored event. 20 different NFTs will be minted and available during NFT NYC on June 21.
To celebrate the opening of the Metaverse Theatre, the Theatre will host the premiere of @jimjonescapo and @Migos NFT music video, We Set The Trends.
