Per their latest announcement, blockchain-based music research and analytics platform Viberate (whose native token VIB is listed on Binance, Bittrex, OKEx, and Uniswap) will be the first to launch a special NFT featuring the right to a live performance, as well as other exclusive content by no. 1 Techno producer and renowned DJ UMEK.

Viberate will be verifying the drop, with the historic release organized in partnership with the Blockparty digital marketplace.

Starting on April 29 and running for 24 hours, UMEK’s offer will include five different NFTs: three exclusive remixes of his seminal1999 track “Lanicor”, one livestream performance, and one live gig. The buyers of UMEK’s NFT will thus either purchase the rights to one of his original remixes, book him for an exclusive online event, or book him for a real-life live performance.

“We’ve been actively involved in the crypto scene for the last several years,” explains Vasja Veber, one of Viberate’s co-founders and UMEK’s manager. “We have our own token (VIB), so tokenizing the rights to a live performance seemed not only the logical next step in the evolution of NFTs, but also an exciting opportunity to explore how the live music industry could handle bookings in the future.”

Several music artists have already made headlines selling their NFTs, either as albums, VIP tickets, digital art, or other concepts. UMEK’s upcoming drop is the first to explore new possibilities for musicians to secure and manage their future bookings once live events return.

If the concept proves to be successful, Viberate plans on providing the option of gig token minting to nearly half a million music artists in its database, along with minting artist ID NFTs through a secure verification process. These ID NFTs will then act as a certificate of authenticity, reassuring the buyer that the contents indeed come from a verified artist, not someone offering other people’s work.

UMEK’s NFT drop will launch on Blockparty on Thursday, April 29, 2021, at 8:00 pm GMT+1 (3:00 pm EST).
