What is the purpose of using Bolero Music when you're an artist?

With Bolero Music, an artist benefits from a simple, fast and fair platfom to create and sell fan tokens & NFTs. To that extent, every artist can create a new sustainable and recurrent source of income from their digital assets. All this in a decentralised way.


Our tokenomics have been designed to empower creators, and incentivise fans. Bolero Music is a place to gather fans into what we call "fandom". Whether users come for their favourite artists or invest in several artists, they are far more engaged in the career of the artists they support (streaming, concert, grapevine...).

Why does every artist have a score?

One of the issues we want to solve in the music industry is the lack of objectivity for assessing artists performances and potential.


Today, an artist is assessed by looking at their sales statistics (digital and physical) and mainly their footprint on social networks.


However, we think that it is not relevant given the way people consume music now, things have changed. So we created the first algorithm capable of evaluating the performance and potential of artists. Each week, the algorithm interprets an artist’s progress by taking into account their musical genre and activity.

How is calculated my tokens supply?

As explained in "Why does every artist have a score", our Index computes a weekly score for all artists on Bolero. This score sets a specific valorisation. Your tokens’ supply is then computed by divided your valorisation by the price you chose to sell your first tokens.

How do I sell tokens?

Once your profile is validated, you will be able to choose your tokens’ price.

How to mint my NFT?

Once you have your artist profile validated, you are able to mint your NFT directly on Bolero Music.


On your Backstage, go to the “NFTs” tabs. You will find the “Create NFT” button.

Warging: Before starting the creation process, be sure to have your wallet connected with some $MATIC. The NFT mint needs resources from the Polygon network. Therefore, you need some $MATIC to pay the gas fees.

We will guide you through 6 steps to create and mint your NFT.

How do I claim my earnings?

You can see all your activity on your Backstage. The first tab, "Overview", gives you the main information about your sales, token price and your Bolero Score. As soon as you have sold some tokens, check on your Backstage. The amount you sold will be available to "claim". You will have to accept the transaction, and it will be transferred to your wallet.

What is an NFT Compilation?

The NFT Compilation is a comprehensive mixture of tracks minted by multiple artists to capture the collective energy of one community.


Think about it as the Web3 version of a curated playlist turned record album where music heads can collect one, or all of the tracks... Available in multiple editions or 1 of 1’s.


Here are a few use cases:

  • Independent labels and imprints can put together compilations to showcase their roster.
  • Like-minded artists can come together under one banner to showcase their love for the culture and the scene they carry.

How does an NFT Compilation work?

NFT Compilations can be created by any artist who has a live profile on Bolero.

Here’s how it works:


1. The artist who creates the compilation is the Curator, and can invite as many Contributors as he/she wants by adding their emails.

2. Contributors will need to create their Artist account and get their profile validated on Bolero before they can access their Backstage area.

3. Once Contributors have accepted their invitations, they may mint their NFT within the Compilation at the “Collection” step.

4. The Curator is responsible for adding artwork, and description before publishing it and making it available in the Explore section for all users.


Additional notes:

  • Tous les NFTs liés à une Compilation son achetés et revendus séparéments.
  • Le prix et la quantité sont définis indépendamment pour chaque collection minté au sein d’une Compilation.
  • Le prix et la quantité sont définis indépendamment pour chaque collection minté au sein d’une Compilation.
  • Les NFTs nouvellement créés peuvent être ajoutés à une Compilation qui a déjà été publiée.
  • Les NFTs déjà mintés ne peuvent pas être liés à une Compilation a posteriori.
