The Rise of Music NFTs
The popular media player Winamp has announced that it will allow users to play music NFTs in a simple and seamless manner. The latest version of Winamp also allows users to link their Metamask wallet via Chrome, Firefox, and Brave browsers.
The audio and video file distribution currently supported by ERC-721 and ERC-1155 standards will soon be available on Winamp. This upgrade would include other important improvements in the future said Alexandre Saboundjian, CEO of Winamp. The new player aims to provide a single, great sounding experience for all users.
“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.”
