Anotherblock CEO Michel D. Traore reported that this way of implementing NFTs lets those who create value around songs get a piece of it.

“The value of music rights is created by people who love and listen to the music and do things with it. Why shouldn’t they be able to have rights if they create the value by listening to it. They should be able to achieve some positive points as well.”

The concept behind this vision of expanding the value primarily record labels and music catalogs to contain more artists themselves as well as fans can be seen as “democratization” of the music industry.

“The middle ground of more and more people owning rights missing nowadays, and I believe that leads to positive effects”.
