The latest to make headlines in the crypto industry is Listen, a music-based NFT – Non-Fungible Token – headed by Tony Hollingsworth. Hollingsworth is well-known for raising awareness on causes of world concern using popular culture.
Hollingworth’s Listen Campaign made news with the massive interest it garnered, which in turn made its fundraising a huge success. The fundraising saw 2.7 million tokens being earned from 3, 000+ wallets. The entire fundraising is valued at $9.4 million (USD).
Hollingworth expressed his delight at this massive success with a substantial boost in token utilities. The significant boost includes a discount of as much as 50% on Listen NFTs.
The Listen Campaign
Listen NFTs are a significant aspect of Hollingworth’s Listen Campaign. The Campaign will see a worldwide broadcast, reaching over 500 million people from 200 countries. The broadcast will be available in 9 languages.
The Campaign aims to support more than 1 billion children globally in the underprivileged and vulnerable segment of the demography.
An Eagerly-Awaited NFT
The sale of Listen NFTs is all set to begin with a bang! Music NFT aficionados will get to stake on a never-before-experienced collection.
The collection will feature performances that have not been experienced before. Legendary performers such as BB King, Jon Bon Jovi, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan and a host of other musicians are set to grace the collection.
The Listen Tokens – $LSTN – will also allow token holders to win entry to a live event – Listen Live – that will be held from June 20 to June 22, 2022. The Los Angeles Coliseum is set to host the event. Winners will get to experience performances from artists from the music and film industry.
At a time when cryptocurrencies and NFTs are slowly making a space for themselves in mainstream finance, using them to address a global concern could only be seen as an encouragement.
This development could make way for greater awareness of cryptocurrencies and blockchain applications and could lead to better acceptance of digital financial assets.
