What is Bolero Music ?

Bolero Music is a blockchain-based platform that lets you invest in music through tokens & NFTs, to bring artists and fans closer together. Our philosophy is to democratise blockchain by giving fans skin in the game, as well as creating a new, recurrent revenue stream for creators.

We allow artists to generate a new class of income while building a new decentralised membership for their fans.

Our artist tokens (ERC-20) can be considered as membership cards that give you access to exclusive rewards from the artists. You can keep these tokens to enjoy the membership and unlock rewards.

Our unique collectibles are non-fungible tokens (NFT, ERC-721) that carry exclusive pieces of art, music tracks, documents, visuals, video clips, or concert tickets. Everything is possible, the artists and their team can decide what kind of content they want to release as NFTs.

What is a crypto wallet?

A crypto wallet is a web-application or a hardware device that allows individuals to store and transfer digital assets like cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). This guide breaks down the crypto wallet basics that you may want to know before trading assets on Bolero Music.

When you install a crypto wallet (Metamask, Torus...), you take control of two 42-character keys; a public key, known as your wallet address, and a private key. You can think of your public key as your shareable bank account info, so copy and paste it in when people ask for your address. Your private key works like a password and should remain private.

If you forget your password, you can get access to your wallet via your seed phrase, a series of words that accompany all wallet addresses. It’s a good practice to write down and safely store your seed phrase in multiple places when you first download your wallet, so if you can't find it, search online for info or reach out to your wallet provider before buying artist tokens or NFTs.

What crypto wallet can I use on Bolero Music?

  • Metamask - A browser extension with peerless power and flexibility. MetaMask is web3’s most popular wallet and one of the oldest players in the industry.

  • Torus - A low friction wallet that allows you to login with an email, Facebook, Google, Twitter or Discord.

  • WalletConnect - WalletConnect is a protocol supported by many different apps and wallets. On Bolero, this option is only available on mobile. However, wallet experience on mobile is still under improvement, we highly recommend you to connect your wallet from a laptop.

How do I create a wallet?

There are several ways to create a wallet. Solutions exist for the most novice among you to the most experienced:

  • Torus: The easy to use wallet.

    It provides a solution for beginners as you can create your wallet simply with a Google connection.

  • Metamask: The most popular wallet.

    Creating a Metamask wallet will allow you to access all Dapps (Decentralised Applications) as it is the most integrated one.

    The process is a little bit longer than Torus. Here is a short tutorial.

  • Rainbow: The best wallet for mobile.

    If you plan use mobile more frequently, you can download the Rainbow application which offers one of the best experience. However, the use of a wallet on a mobile phone is not yet optimal. We therefore recommend using it on a computer.

How do I connect my wallet to my Bolero Music account?

If you have a Torus account, you will need to connect your wallet every time you connect to Bolero. Click on "connect wallet", choose "Torus" and enter the email you connected the first time.

For Metamask, once you've created your wallet, click on "connect wallet" and then select "Metamask". A first pop-up will appear to connect your wallet to Bolero. You can accept and confirm. Then, as we are based on Polygon network, a second pop-up appears to switch your network from the Ethereum network to the Polygon Mainnet. You can also accept and confirm.

What currencies can I use on Bolero Music?

  • USDC: This will allow you to buy artist’s tokens and NFTs
  • MATIC: This will allow you to pay the transaction fees
