[Blockchain Today Reporter Park Yohan] Rolling Stones leader Mick Jagger jumped into the NFT (irreplaceable token) trend to help independent music venues influenced by Pandemic.
According to Cointelegraph reports, music legend Jagger said in a statement on the 15th (local time) that Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl and the new song-based NFT were introduced at the Nifty Gateway. He said it was auctioned 24 hours a day. Designed by artist Olivia Latta, also known as Exraweg, this digital work features the song’Eazy Sleazy’ by Grool and Jagger played in the background and features a picture loop running through the heads of two people. .
Proceeds from the auction go to fundraising for independent music venues in the United States and the United Kingdom through local charities, music venue trusts, and the National Independent Venue Alliance, according to NFT’s explanation. Part of the proceeds goes to the environment as well. The current highest bid is $8,988, with 12 people bidding for the NFT.
Many music artists participated in the NFT last year. Last month, Crypto.com announced plans to launch the NFT platform, featuring works by Snoop Dogg, Boy George, and Lionel Richie. Major organizations are also using NFTs to raise charitable funds. New York Times columnist Kevin Roose donated more than $550,000 by auctioning his articles to The Neediest Cases Fund.
