Because music is part of everyone's identity, OffBeat has created the Music ID, as a non-transferable music passport that showcases the uniqueness of every fan.
OffBeat will team up with Polygon, to allow web3 music lovers to own their music identity as a Soulbound NFT (SBT). With the Music ID, music fans can capture their entire musical life, from music consumption data to concerts they attend, manually added tastes, and music NFT ownership, serving as a music passport across metaverse platforms and experiences.
The Music ID as an SBT will not only be non-transferable but also be dynamic and interactive:
It will evolve with time according to your real music consumption, and
it will have an interactive interface to take deep dives into people's true musical identities.
“OffBeat collaborating with Polygon symbolizes a tremendous landmark in the fandom economy. We are re-imagining how fans interact with music and how they gain access to new experiences, products, and people. I am honored to bring this opportunity to life”, said Ivet Anoro, OffBeat CEO.
Today, OffBeat revealed the first proof of concept of the Music ID as an SBT
OffBeat is becoming the web3 community of music lovers, the place where fans come together to share, connect and be themselves.
In July 2022, OffBeat was backed by Outlier Ventures, the best web3 accelerator in the world, through the Polygon Basecamp. Since then, the team managed to achieve substantial traction with more than 10,000 Music IDs already created and more than 3,500 MAUs using the app to recommend songs and connect with people with similar music tastes.
The Music ID is the key piece to drive connections between fans, creating a community where music is at the core. It's also the way to drive and reward fandom by allowing artists to create deeper emotional bonds with their fans, via crediting and acknowledging fan behaviors.
The OffBeat team previously created a music streaming platform with more than 5 million downloads and now aims to scale fast to become the industry leader and standard for fandom accreditation as well as driving social interactions between music lovers and artists.
