Nomad Media Club Opens
Web 3 music streaming platform, the Nomad Media Club, opened its artist pre-registration Friday on its way toi launching an holistic home for audio sharing and social networking, accessed only through ownership of NFTs.
The shared audio Social Hub platform is part of the 2023 vision of a Nomad Mediaverse with open borders and monetization opportunities for creatives exploring Web 3 opportunities.
Musicians, podcasters and artists can now pre-register to mint one of Nomad Media Club’s 5,000 unique and metaverse-ready Founders Pass NFTs as the genesis of the Nomad Mediaverse. This pass enables the owner to share and stream content, network with artists and listeners, access free community resources and expertise, as well as multiple opportunities to accrue crypto while using the platform.
Designed to disrupt subscription-based streaming models and build a platform for non-established artists to benefit from digital commercial opportunities, the Social Hub employs layer two protocols that allow artists and podcasters to earn and keep 100% of their revue in crypto royalties. Crypto earned by artists and listeners can then be used for utilities and services on the platform, as well as staked or sold on third-party marketplaces, without the contractual or financial ties of a typical music streaming platform.
