Vishakha Singh - VP, WazirX NFT Marketplace, said, "NFTs are revolutionizing the music industry by creating new possibilities and experiences for both artists and collectors. Prior to the pandemic, artists relied heavily on touring to break even, but with live music continuing to face an uncertain future, the potential of NFTs hold a huge appeal. As the NFT community grows, we have understood the landscape better, especially when it comes to music, art and culture. Thus, partnering with Asia's biggest music festival is a step to showcase the unique creations by these independent artists while also reaching out to a wider target audience of music aficionados. We are excited to launch an array of Sunburn assets as NFT to the audience and grow the NFT Community in India."
Commenting on the partnership, Karan Singh, Chief Operating Officer, Percept Live, says, "The music industry is in a rapid state of flux and evolution. We see NFTs and digitization of our business as a giant leap forward and a mainstay to engage with our new age fans. Pioneering this in the music domain, we are tremendously thrilled to partner with WazirX to launch our collection of NFTs. As an organization, we have always strived to forge innovative partnerships which can be beneficial for all our stakeholders and especially our fans."
NFTs allow artists to cut out expenses and risks that result from intermediaries and save time by selling directly to their fan base, thus increasing the popularity of crypto collectibles exponentially. With an ever-increasing interest in NFTs amongst artists and collectors, WazirX NFT Marketplace not only helps dignify the work of the independent creators from across the world by giving them a platform to showcase their art, but also exposes us to the diverse universe of NFT collectors in South Asia.
