Music x Blockchain: PLS&TY Becomes Part of the Industry’s Future by Releasing “Very Special” EP
PLS&TY becomes a frontrunner in the connection between music and technology by partnering with Ethereum blockchain platform Foundation to sell a limited quantity of his “Very Special” EP on vinyl. The EP was released digitally in April and features four tracks, with collaborations from Sean Kingston, Alex Aiono, Wifisfuneral, to name a few. Foundation‘s mission is to serve as a stock exchange for art and culture, which allows the market’s natural supply and demand dictate the price of the goods sold on the platform; this dynamic pricing model lets artists benefit directly from the hype that surrounds their work. If you’re already anxious for a copy of “Very Special” on vinyl, you’ll need to get your hands on a $PECIAL digital token. Early buyers will secure a better price. When the vinyl is ready to ship, the tokens will be redeemable to receive the physical vinyl anywhere in the world; alternatively, token holders can continue to keep the digital value of the token or trade it in the Foundation market. The intersection of music with blockchain is an exciting glimpse into the future of the industry, and PLS&TY is the first musician to dive right in.
