Remember O2Jam? It’s a rhythm game where you can play music with your own virtual band. The game was popular in Korea, and even became so popular that it was listed on the Korean Stock Exchange. The word “O2Jam” has become synonymous with the “K-pop” genre of music.
As a player, you buy an album and use virtual coins to buy characters to create a band. Whenever you level up, you unlock new songs and stages which are used by other players as well. Each song has different difficulty levels from easy to hard which makes it easier for beginners to learn how to play music while challenging more experienced players at higher levels.
What’s possible with gamification of music nfts?
It’s possible to create an experience that is more fun and rewarding for users. Music NFTs can be used to reward players for playing, winning and listening to music. They can also be used to reward players for sharing their creations with others.
NFTs can be used to make the music experience more fun and rewarding.
NFTs can be used to make the music experience more fun and rewarding. Why waste your time playing the same song over and over again, when you could mint a music NFT from your favorite creator!
Using NFTs as rewards for playing music creates a positive feedback loop that encourages people to play more songs, which makes their tokens more valuable, which incentivizes them to play even more songs…etc., etc., — infinity.
It’s a win-win for everyone involved. The musician gets rewarded for their work, the game publishers never runs out of new music content and gamers gets empowered to support their favourite artists . There are many opportunities to create engaging experiences that use NFTs as rewards.
It’s time to step back, take a look at the larger picture and ask yourself: what’s next? What are some of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for music NFTs?
As a community, we need to figure out how we can better incentivise content creators. When it comes down to it, most people don’t make music because they want money or fame — they do it because they love doing it. I think there’s an opportunity here for us as a community to create something bigger than ourselves by rewarding artists with tokens that have real value in exchange for their work (similarly how musicians were rewarded with concert tickets when digital streaming was starting out). At this point we’re still in early days with these systems; there’s plenty more room for improvement!
