MDNTLATOMMY, also known as Dakota Thomas, launches his first music NFT on Mintable
(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- San Francisco, California May 15, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – Welcome to the MNDT (MIDNITE) EXPERIMENT. You will be entering a world that MDNTLATOMMY created for many various reasons.
At the brink of war and written under dire circumstances, MDNTLATOMMY have chosen to abstain from retirement and bloody his hands again. MDNTLATOMMY wrote this in the hope that in some timeline, somewhere, someone will read this and be able to tell the story.
This universe has many facets all created for the documentation of this experiment that MDNTLATOMMY is conducting – this being the first chapter, TEARJERKOPERA, a piece of music NFT listed on Mintable.
Directions for interacting with this universe are as follows:
Each chapter in this story will build on the lore and contribute to developing the universe in some way. Think of the world of your favorite video game or novel and they all have backstories and characters that contribute to how the world is built.
The intention is to execute this same concept with MDNTLATOMMY’s music. Every chapter will be accompanied by a package of content that contributes to the lore and artistic vision of the project. The songs and accompanying music videos will be sold as NFTs as regular art pieces. Think of them as you would any regular art piece that is sold in this space, simply serving as showing that you have a piece of the history that we are making.
Separately, there will be collectibles that will be sold as NFTs that will function as smart contracts with varying rarities. These smart contracts will provide opportunities to access other rewards with higher rarities, resulting in more value to the user. Rarities include common, rare, epic, and highland. The characters that are in the specific chapter will also be sold as “Performers.”
Each NFT that is a collectible will have a pixelated version that you can interact with to view the actual photo of it, the description of the item, and how it functions as a smart contract. We encourage you to truly immerse yourself in the world that we have created.
This project aims to utilize unique ownership to create a music project in a way like never before.
Note from Dakota Thomas:
I have waited for a day much like this one for many years. In 2019, I said that I would take a break from music until 2021. I had no idea about the pandemic, NFTs, or what crypto would be doing now, but I find it beautiful that these things are being pushed to the forefront of digital society as I make my reemergence within the music. Today marks the beginning of a project that will lead my legacy and allow me to change the lives of so many around me.
This project marks what will generate the opportunities that I need to fulfill my life’s purpose and achieve the “outlandish” goals that I have set for myself. Ownership is something that is only recently being truly talked about in the African American community, and I feel that this project is my opportunity to show what ownership can truly entail during this digital age. We are the most talented people on the planet, yet own so little of it. The digital space is still available for conquering, and we are still extremely early.
Through NFTs and an extreme amount of push and creativity, I aim to create a world like Harry Potter, League of Legends, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, etc. These are absolute beasts of brands that have created a memorable emotional connection with their lore by bringing you into their universe. Musicians like The Gorillaz, MF DOOM, Shock G, and The Weeknd have created characters before, but this project aims to use smart contracts to give fans unique individual experiences with physical versions of the characters that you are reading these stories about.
With this, I aim to create a unique, entertaining, and historical project that lives on much past my expiration as a piece of digital history. Your participation in this project is truly, truly appreciated, and I will ensure that I provide indefinite value to all who are generous enough to play a role. Be sure to stay tuned for more details on the rest of the project.
Mintable is a next-generation non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace built on the Ethereum & Zilliqa blockchain. Launched in 2018, Mintable has pushed the NFT industry forward by being the first to design gasless minting, batch minting, and royalties, empowering artists and creators to monetize their work via NFTs. Mintable’s gas-free minting option allows the everyday person to get involved with NFTs without any prior knowledge in coding or upfront cost of minting an asset – a great way for everyone to get into crypto. In 2021, Mintable announced the backing of a list of high-caliber investors including renowned venture capitalist and television personality, Mark Cuban, Sound Ventures, the venture fund founded by Guy Oseary and Ashton Kutcher, and TIME Ventures, the investment fund for Marc Benioff. To date, Mintable has sold and auctioned works by Grammy-Award-winning artists, 20th-century avant-garde artists, and various high-profile artists and celebrities.
