ZZ Top frontman launches music NFTs on Cardano
As reported by U.Today earlier, a music legend from the ZZ Top rock band, frontman Billy Gibbons, had chosen the Cardano blockchain to release his freshly played pieces of music in the form of non-fungible tokens.
The auction at which these NFTs went on sale took place over the weekend on the Terra Virtua platform for digital collectibles.
Bids were required to be made in fiat and, by the end of the auction, the bidders were to pay either in fiat or in ADA coin—the native crypto asset of Cardano.
Billy Gibbons believes that blockchain offers great opportunities for the music and art industries, and one of them is launching NFTs.
