The Rise of Music NFTs
In another development, the popular Windows media player Winamp announced that they would allow users to play music NFTs in a simple and seamless manner. Winamp’s latest music version also allows users to link their Metamask wallet via Chrome, Firefox, and Brave browsers.
It currently supports the distribution of audio and video files with ERC-721and ERC-1155 standards. Winamp said that they would club the NFT support with other important upgrades in the future. Winamp’s player will bring together the scattered experiences into a single, great-sounding place. Speaking on the development, Winamp CEO Alexandre Saboundjian said:
“The genesis of Winamp has always been about accessibility and innovation, and today we are proud to launch the very first standalone player reading audio NFTs, as well as any other existing formats. This new version of Winamp allows people to listen to any file they want, using a player they already love.”
