Winamp launches NFT support
Users can listen to music in NFT format
The Trust Project is a worldwide group of news organizations working to establish transparency standards.
The popular music player Winamp announced that it now supports NFTs. This means that users can now use the player to view, manage, and play their NFT collections. NFTs are a new type of digital asset that allows users to own and trade unique digital items. They have been gaining in popularity in recent months, with a number of high-profile sales and developments taking place.
The announcement from Winamp is significant as it shows that NFTs are entering the mainstream. It is also a sign that the music industry is starting to treat NFTs more seriously.
The popular audio and video player Winamp has recently unveiled its Version 5.9.1 update. This new version features developer support for the ERC-721 and ERC-1155 audio non-fungible token (NFT) formats, allowing users to create music libraries as tokens on the Polygon and Ethereum networks. Winamp is excited to provide this capability to its users in order to give them greater control over their music library creation and ownership processes.
Accessibility and innovation are at the core of the Winamp player, which is why we are proud to present the first standalone player that reads NFT audio like any other existing format. Winamp played a key role in the development of digital music when the mp3 format changed the way music was listened to. We are now supporting innovation as more musicians explore the Web3 space and its potentialsaid Winamp CEO Alexandre Saboundjian
In order to listen to the NFT music, the user must connect their MetaMask wallet to the player through a compatible browser, such as Brave, Chrome, and Firefox. This connection will allow them to play the NFT music just like any other mp3 file.
