Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 4, Jul 22) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
In our web3 news today, we are highlighting the relaunch of tool called LimeWire that once used to be popular for file sharing, but got into a lot of controversy. Now they are relaunching it as a ‘Music NFT Marketplace’. I wanted to highlight this to you because this is a model that you can explore and actually research, if you’re planning to introduce NFT into a traditionally popular model. For example, Music and Music Marketplace is not new, but bringing NFTs into the mix is something that many people have been exploring. But LimeWire seems to have thought of a few things much more deeper, bringing much more clarity into a few things. Like for example, you can use your credit or your debit card on the platform. And some of the NFTs are actually originals, available only on this marketplace. They’ve thought through a few things. This could be a good research platform for you if you are planning to introduce NFT into your ministry or your nonprofit.
