LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — LiveOne (Nasdaq: LVO), a creator-first, music, entertainment and technology platform focused on delivering premium experiences and content worldwide through memberships, subscriptions, and live and virtual events, announced today that it plans to launch its own membership token in partnership with Polygon and Cere Network.
Additionally, LiveOne will collaborate with NFT platform DaVinci (a joint venture of Polygon and Cere Network) to enable LiveOne creators, talent and artists to launch NFTs and NFT-backed experiences and create LiveOne’s NFTs marketplace. The NFTs will be minted on the Polygon blockchain, which is an environmentally friendly, Ethereum-compatible layer two solution.
The new LiveOne membership token will become available to the over 2 million LiveOne paid and free members (via play to earn)**, shareholders and artists. It will be able to be earned and redeemed across a multitude of activities, including spending time on LiveOne’s platform, listening to music and podcasts/vodcasts, attending events/festivals, virtual and in-person meet and greets and purchasing merchandise, as well as interacting across the LiveOne platform and metaverse. From time to time, LiveOne also expects to airdrop discounts and unlock benefits to current holders of tokens and/or certain NFTs.
“The digital marketplace is changing how artists and creators are monetizing content and connecting with their audience,” said Robert Ellin, Chairman and CEO of LiveOne. “As we shift to Web 3.0, we want to put the power directly in the hands of the creators and users. LiveOne has always promoted talent and fans first, and with blockchain technologies opening new doors for interaction, we are excited to offer artists and our members exclusive and deeper experiences.”
Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder of Polygon, said: “By leveraging DaVinci, LiveOne has the potential to transform the creator economy, offering a more egalitarian route for artists to securely monetize their content while encouraging direct-to-fan interaction. Supported by Polygon, LiveOne creators will be able to mint, transfer, and sell their creations in a low-cost, efficient, and ecologically sound manner.”
“Today’s NFT offerings are barely scratching the surface of what’s to come,” said Fred Jin, CEO of Cere Network. “Together with LiveOne, we are turning amazing music, film, and art experiences into personalized NFT collectibles that truly deepens the artist-to-fan connection.”
Token issuances and NFT releases shall be completed in compliance with applicable laws.
