Muse Announces Album At Polygon-Based NFT Platform

Serenade- “Will of the People,” the eighth studio album by vulnerable rock band Muse, will be released as NFT on August 26 and is expected to be the first song to hit the charts in both the UK and Australia.

Formed in 2014, the band Muse received the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album in 2011 and 2016; NME Award for Best British Group in 2007, 2010, and 2011, MTV Europe Music Award for Best World Stage Performance in 2019; and many more compliments.

Muse Serenade Will Use Layer-2 Solution Polygon

According to its corporate website, Serenade is minting NFTs using its layer-2 solution, Polygon. Ethereum’s current Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism is said to be “much less efficient” than Polygon’s Proof of Stake (PoS) approach.

The ability to purchase NFTs on Serenade, which uses debit and credit cards without creating a cryptocurrency wallet, is one of the platform’s unique features. Users can also use pre-established Bitcoin or Ethereum wallets connected to Coinbase.

According to The Guardian, there will be a global restriction of 1,000 copies for the upcoming NFT release of Muse in both NFT and limited edition formats.

For $24.50, fans can purchase high-resolution FLAC downloads of the album digitally signed by Muse members. An endless list of all 1000 recipients’ names will also be included in the linked recipient list. OCC’s CEO, Martin Talbot, stated that the release of the Muse album did not require a change to OCC’s change eligibility rules because Serenade was already certified as a chart-turn digital retailer, making it the first NFT record.
