Mint Season 4 Recap: The World of Music NFTs
1080

This episode is different than the rest.

Mint Season 4 was epic.

We now reach over 20,000 web3 creators, founders, and investors per month across audio, video, blog, and newsletter, to name a few. I started Mint 10 short months ago to focus on the web3 creator economy and couldn’t be happier with its progress to date.

A special thanks to Coinvise and Polygon Studios for collecting my sponsorship NFTs and making this season possible.

For this season, I curated 20 creators to be featured across 20 episodes. Yet, as publishing time increased and trends evolved, so did my guest list.

I ended up publishing 34 episodes with leading figures in the web3 creator economy and music movement featuring everyone from the founders of Catalog, Mint Songs, and Royal, to the top collectors and music creators defining this decentralized revolution.

To close out season 4, I wanted to take a moment to compile some thoughts, favorite takeaways, and summaries from a few key episodes.

From Record Label to Web3: This is Alec King
2277

Following his EP's, "Greatest Hits Vol. 1 & 2" he released his debut album "Everything's Backwards." Alec is gearing up to release a single every other week until a meteor takes us all out. Since leaving his label, he's taken a dive into the music NFT/web 3 space. Right before the pandemic, he went on tour as direct support for Kiana Lede across the US and Canada.


We mainly shoot the shit in this episode, but we got to uncover a lot of his journey transitioning from Republic Records into now being an independent artist trying to own and monetize his audience using crypto primitives.
