Spotify joins the NFT boom and emulates Instagram’s strategy

Spotify is not only the most used music streaming platform, but now seeks to join the NFT boom with a new feature for artists.

In a world where music is no longer consumed on the radio and in traditional distribution channels (CD’s, cassettes, etc.), Spotify leads the market with more than 365 million registered users.

This, of course, is not news, as it is known that the Stockholm platform has been the most popular and, above all, the one with the greatest reach for years.

With all this data in its favor, it is not surprising that Spotify continues to build its strategies in the universe of audio content, although now it seems to have another bet with which it begins to join the increasingly growing trend of NFT.

According to what has been reported in some media, the platform is testing a new feature that will allow artists to share their collections of NFTs to their followers/listeners.

“Spotify is running a test where it will help a small group of artists promote their existing third-party NFT offerings through their artist profiles. We routinely run a number of tests in an effort to improve artist and fan experiences. Some of those tests end up paving the way for a broader experience and others serve only as important learning.”mentions the Music Ally medium.

At the moment, according to what is reported, only collectibles from artists such as Steve Aoki and The Wombats are available, and it is a function that is only available to some Spotify users.
