Bjork’s Latest Album Available Only With Cryptocurrencies, Shows Adoption

in #bitcoin5 years ago

From Cointelegraph


Known for embracing all things edgy, musician Bjork has announced that her latest album, Utopia, will be available for purchase only through cryptocurrencies. The artist will accept Bitcoin, Litecoin, DASH, and AudioCoin. Interestingly, the album cannot be purchased using normal fiat currencies.

The move by the musician may seem like a marketing strategy of sorts to appear unique and to draw attention during a time when Bitcoin’s rise has brought cryptocurrencies into the mainstream. However, according to Kevin Bacon of Blockpool:

"This really isn’t a marketing strategy with Björk. This is a decision to be a leader. In fact, it’s just the obvious thing to do for her. If I wasn’t involved in this project, I’d expect Björk to be a leader in this area, and for her team to be doing creative things with crypto.”

I'm still not sure how I feel about her music. Part of me really likes some of her songs but other times I think she is a no-talent ass clown the like Yoko Ono.

Bjork is ahead of the curve as usual. Hopefully independent artists around the globe will follow suit. Can't wait to hear about a major distribution deal denoted in crypto!

Imogen Heap released a song (Tiny Humans) that was only available (at the time) for purchase with ETH in 2015. She's leading a huge push for blockchain/crypto solutions for the music industry. Incredible ramifications not just in artist compensation but data retention, contracting, and so much more.

I'd highly recommend that anyone with a bit of interest in blockchain in the music industry check out the mycelia project.
