The brilliantly talented Caleb De Casper will be launching the world's first NFT-to-Vinyl NFT on the Tezos blockchain. With resource shortages causing vinyl production to come to a crawl, Caleb has come up with an NFT that you can purchase and exchange for vinyl. In the NFT will be an MP3 album exclusive to the NFT purchaser, and the NFT owner will have the ability to exchange the NFT for vinyl or just keep the NFT. More on this launch in the near future.
This holiday season, when your kids and loved ones ask for a cool NFT under the tree, we've got Santa covered with an exclusive series of the most evil elf in the North Pole. We are giving this NFT away for the holiday season and once they are gone, they are gone. We will be allowing exclusive Discord channel access to holders of this NFT and have plans for 2022 where this NFT acts as the ultimate membership card and gives you access to exclusive Chicken Ranch Records merchandise. To acquire one, all you have to do is jump into our #NFT Discord channel or email us with your wallet address.
An NFT is a non-fungible token, which is a digital object that cannot be changed. NFTs represent a revolution where the same rules of scarcity that govern physical goods, can be applied to digital goods. There are pros and cons to this but the idea is that the more we live hybrid digital and physical lives, we can create new products to serve customer demands. Our opinion is that this NFT revolution centers on the artist and gives them additional avenues to get paid for their art.
There are a lot of opinions on NFTs and their utility. Opinions range from it all being a scam, to it being the future of art enjoyment and ownership. Our perspective is that anything that helps support musicians and artists so they can continue to grow and do what they love, then we are all for that.
Getting your own wallet is easy with the Wax token. Just go to http://wallet.wax.io and create an account using your Facebook / Google or a variety of other authentication methods. (There are a number of ways to have wallets, hot wallets, cold wallets, on the Wax network. The world of crypto is vast, deep and has many ways to do a task.) Once you've got that account, log in and you'll notice your wallet address on the top right. Typically a series of letters and numbers with .wam at the end. That is your crypto address that identifies your wallet and any NFTs you purchase or receive will be dropped off at that address. To get your own Chicken Ranch Records NFT, just ping us on Discord or email us with your wallet address. Limit one NFT per customer while supplies last.
For our initial NFT launches we will be using the Wax token and be hosted on Atomic Hub. Our Wax wallet information can be found here: chknrnch.gm (link goes to bloks.io listing). Our Atomic Hub marketplace can be found here. We will be using a combination of Atomic Hub and NeftyBlocks tools to facilitate packs with random NFTs inside.
We mint on Wax or Tezos and use tools available through Atomic Hub, NeftyBlocks and Objkt. We use these tokens for three reasons. First, Wax and Tezos has shown that they are much more environmentally friendly than Bitcoin and Ethereum so we wanted to make sure we were responsible global partners. Wax is 125,000 times more energy efficient than Ethereum. Secondly, there are no gas fees when peer-to-peer transferring of NFTs. This means that more money stays in the pockets of the artist and not going to anonymous fee entities. And thirdly, Wax is showing itself to be the center of pop culture NFT collectibles with Funko, Hot Wheels and even Spiderman using the platform for their NFT releases. Tezos has additional formats for NFTs like embedding MP3s within and the Tezos community is more into one off or limited run collections. We are going to experiment on other platforms as well as we work to serve our artists and customers better.
Think of it as another item on the merch table. It doesnt replace tshirts or vinyl, but just gives another way to continue to do what they love. One of the better things about NFTs is that you dont have to put them in a box and lug them from city to city.
Our goal with NFTs are a work in progress. Initially our NFTs will allow special access to our Discord community. We will be rolling out preferred access to artists during shows (backstage or preferred seating). We will provide a great product for fans of our label musicians and artists. NFTs allow us to remix and deliver even more opportunities for our artists. This world is new, we are going to try a bunch of things that work or might fail, but we are very excited.
