Warner Music Group (WMG), a worldwide music and entertainment company, has partnered with OpenSea, the world's most popular peer-to-peer NFT market, to provide a platform for select WMG artists to build their fan communities in Web3. OpenSea's new drop product will be accessible to WMG artists early on, along with improved discoverability, personalised storytelling on custom landing pages, and OpenSea's industry-leading safety and security features.
OpenSea will also provide dedicated assistance and best practices to help WMG artists build new Web3 communities and introduce existing fan communities to novel forms of connection and creativity based on NFTs. Artists will be able to host limited-edition projects on their own drop pages, opening new opportunities for fans to interact with music and artists.
