Sounds Like A Plan / 'NFTs' – with Max Shand, creator of Serenade

Listen on

Episode notes

NFTs are the most hyped new format the music space has seen in years – recently everyone from Grimes to Kings of Leon have got in on the act. However, traditional NFTs also have a tremendously harmful effect on the environment. But these digital collectibles don’t have to. 

Max Shand is the creator of Serenade, a recently launched NFT platform who, via the technology they utilise, have a more eco conscious approach. And, in a world where these digital collectibles change hands for huge sums of money, he wants NFTs to be affordable and accessible to real music fans while creating a sustainable system that financially rewards creators. He's also very good at explaining what NFTs are, in case you're still thoroughly confused. 

Hosts Fay Milton and Greg Cochrane also share some recommendations.
