Warner Music Group and Polygon are significant players in the Web3-based music sector
In order to penetrate the Web3 market, Warner Music Group teamed up with OpenSea in October 2022. In order to decentralize intellectual property rights and include fans, they worked with Probably Nothing to introduce the “NFT Label Pass” collection. In this investigation, musicians like Ed Sheeran and Madonna are included.
By collaborating with Splinterlands to develop play-to-earn games and by building a park with a musical theme in The Sandbox Metaverse, WMG increased its blockchain presence.
In the previous year, Polygon collaborated with Starbucks, Reddit, and Nike. Additionally, it collaborated with Mastercard to launch NFTs and a training program for prospective Web3 musicians.
