While celebrities and athletes have been jumping into the non-fungible token (NFT) scene headfirst, a large quantity of music acts have also entered the NFT industry. On Tuesday, a lineup of world-famous DJs are being represented in a newly launched NFT collection called Djenerates. The NFT collection is supported by prominent DJs like Carl Cox, Paul Oakenfold, Paul Val Dyk, Benny Benassi, Sven Väth, and Blond:ish.
Prominent DJs Featured in NFT Collection
In 2021, non-fungible token (NFT) assets have become a billion-dollar industry and it seems everyone is trying to get in on the action. Bitcoin.com News has reported on the swarm of celebrities flocking to NFTs quite a bit this year.
Popular hip-hop superstars like Snoop Dogg, Lil Pump, Eminem, Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, and Ja Rule have also been participating in the blockchain and crypto revolution. Now a slew of popular DJs are being featured in a collection of NFTs called the Djenerates.
The collection launched on September 28, and features 10,000 unique characters from the electronic music world. “From clubbers, DJs & bar staff to VIPs, bouncers and dancers, this is your exclusive pass into a new creative clubbing paradigm, known as the Djenerates,” the website details.
Pioneering DJ Paul Oakenfold to Launch NFT Album on Cardano
The Djenerates launch announcement details that the project has partnered with the Cardano network’s Starship Universe. The pioneering DJ Paul Oakenfold revealed at the recent Cardano summit in Laramie, Wyoming that he would be launching an NFT album (dubbed “Zombie Lobster”) on the ADA network.
“We live in a technological age,” Oakenfold said. “Platforms used to be for trains, clouds were in the sky and socials were places you danced. Things change quickly. It’s all about ‘when?’ and ‘where?’ but few people ask ‘why?’. When you do, it becomes clear what the right path to take is,” the legendary DJ added.
