The next few years will show us an incredible path to live and work in the Metaverse using cryptocurrencies and watching virtual shows. In many ways, the Metaverse will be a new, more visual and engaging version of the internet. Many analysts believe that the metaverse will fundamentally change the way people communicate, work and play. Metaverse (not Metaverse, mind you, we’re still waiting to see what Facebook’s upcoming “meta” VR/AR social network has in store for us) may be just what the entertainment industry needs.
Clearly, a decentralized metaverse can improve the industry in a number of ways. The expansion of the music industry into the virtual world has also brought new challenges, especially with regard to property rights and copyrights.
Meanwhile, Warner Music Group is the latest of several music industry titans showing interest in the increasingly mainstream world of cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and the Metaverse. The partnership is WMG’s first step into the world of NFTs and the Metaverse.
As NFT and Metaverse go mainstream, music industry heavyweights are rushing to join the trend.
Offering both NFT and the Metaverse as part of the spectrum of experiences available at the Tecate Pal Norte music event, not everyone enters and fails to land successfully. The possibilities are endless and I’m sure as XR and NFT evolve we’ll see new use cases pop up around the world.
These new “metaverses” may just provide the new platform that the music and live entertainment industries are looking for as they continue to look for digital alternatives to in-person events. The mania around the metaverse continues to grow; after numerous sales of NFTs, it is digital avatars and the future of productivity and interaction in what many call “Web 3.0” that is gaining momentum. Over the past five years, there has been a growing interest in the Metaverse, the fusion of the digital and real worlds made possible by technologies such as augmented and virtual reality.
Designed to merge our physical world with our digital life, the Metaverse has the potential to revolutionize how we perceive many areas of our lives. We do not know what the Metaverse will become, but it promises to be both a virtual environment and a way to connect the digital and physical worlds with a glass gadget that can eventually replace a smartphone. Instead of just chatting with friends or using a video calling platform, the Metaverse will allow people to interact in the same digital space. What Web3 and the Metaverse can do is get the job done and create a live music culture that has never been more exciting and open.
There is no denying that VR music or in other words audio crypto is a good thing, but building a safe, fair, and transparent industry in the metaverse will require action and the involvement of multiple stakeholders.
Michael Nash, executive vice president of digital strategy at Universal Music Groups, said NFT and Web3, the next-generation Internet powered by blockchain technology, provide an opportunity for labels and artists to create unique digital experiences for fans simultaneously via streaming. access to ubiquitous music. For those who still doubt the future influence and omnipresence of the Metaverse, NFT or even blockchain technology in the near future of the music industry, these announcements may lead you to believe otherwise. Like other rising stars of the blockchain world such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), DAOs have already begun to make their mark on the industry. Over the past year, the popularity of blockchain music has skyrocketed amid growing interest in NFTs and the Metaverse.
