What is an NFT?

NFT stands for non-fungible token. It is said to be non-fungible because it is an integer, it cannot be divided. Thanks to this, a file can be attached to each NFT. On the other hand, the NFT is unique and issued in limited quantities: it is the artist who decides on the number of copies (one or more).

An NFT can be considered as a box in which an artist puts the file of his choice. As a user you can become the owner of this box, and thus the owner of the file inside.

On Bolero, artists offer 4 types of NFT: songs (recordings), visuals (photos, gifs...), live pass (concerts, festivals...) and part of master (sale of a part of a master...)

To acquire an NFT, you have to follow the method defined by the artist:

  • Direct purchase
  • Auction sale
  • Make an open offer

How do I search for NFTs?

What kind of NFTs exist?

At Bolero, we wanted to let you collect pieces of each artist creative universe, while keeping a simple experience of discovery and usage. Therefore, we have created and made available 4 different types of NFTs:

  • Master Recording Share (mp3 snippet, file)
  • Track (mp3, wav)
  • Visual (pictures, music videos, gifs)
  • Live Pass (backstage access, free entrance, festivals...)

What is a Track NFT?

A Track NFT is an exclusive record that the Artist has decided to distribute on Bolero and on the blockchain rather than on traditional streaming platforms.

In most instances, these NFTs contain studio outtakes or unfinished recordings that are part of the Artist's legacy.

Each Track NFT contains: the complete mp3 or wav track with a cover.

What is a Master Recording Share NFT?

A master recording is the official recording of a song, sound or performance. Also referred to as “masters”, it is the source from which all the later copies are made.

With a master recording, an artist can license the recording to third parties, like TV shows, films, commercials or even for sampling use by other artists.

Each Master Recording Share NFT contains: a mp3 extract of the record involved, a cover, an agreement file committing the Artist to pay the share that is due to the NFT holder.

By acquiring a part of the master through an NFT, you will earn a proportional part of the royalties (revenues). The artist or Bolero collect the total royalties and then redistribute it to the NFT holders.

The share due to the NFT holder is paid on the frequency decided by the Artist (weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly).

What is a Visual NFT?

A visual NFT is an NFT that contains visuals from the Artist's creative world. These visuals can be original images, videos, official music videos or gifs.

Please pay attention to the description of these NFTs, as they often give access to special rewards.

What is a Live Pass NFT?

Live Pass NFTs give holders access to live representations. These concerts can take place during a tour, a festival or exclusive showcases. The Artist can also give access to rehearsals or Backstage/VIP experiences.

Each Live Pass NFT contains: a visual and the terms of access. The artists or their teams always contact the NFT holders by email to explain the next steps.

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.
