IOST partnership with Label Foundation



On May 4th, 2022, IOST is excited to announce its strategic partnership with the Label Foundation- one of the earliest pioneers committed to creating a sustainable music IP NFTs ecosystem for the top musicians (Grammy award-winning artists), protected by a distributed ledger.

The emerging world of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) is growing beyond works of art, play-to-earn game items, virtual real estate, and collectibles, and now includes music NFTs. Musicians and music producers are now generating significant revenue by selling digital versions of their art and music. In the case of NFT music IP, it belongs to the realm of rare NFTs stored in blockchain technology. NFT Music IPs typically help block the middlemen that make up the majority of musicians’ revenue, providing a lucrative opportunity for creators to monetize.

By expanding the ecosystem into IOST, Label foundation could benefit from the fast, secure, and reasonable gas fees of the IOST network. The IOST Foundation sees added values and a positive outlook in its collaborations with musical NFTs and top artists via Label Foundation. The IOST and LABEL team believe that music producers can earn significantly more on decentralized platforms than top musicians, either through centralized streaming apps or traditional labels.”- IOST Foundation CMO, Blake Jeong.
We are very excited to enter into a strategic partnership with IOST. IOST is a project with high recognition in Asia, especially in Korea, China, Japan, and Thailand, and we expect synergies to be created through collaboration with the IOST ecosystem and Label.” - LABEL Foundation CSO Hyungsoon Choi 

When LABEL is ready to roll out its NFT infrastructure, thousands of music producers and IP holders could be part of a new era of intermediary-free label business.
