NEWM x Sick City - The Record Store Music Collectibles 2.0

Problem

Music collectibles empower artists, but remain very nuanced. The lack of knowledge on the artist side combined with an unfriendly UX creates a lot of friction in the artist-listener connection.

Solution

The solution: Updating the UX/UI of recordstore.newm.io and adding an Artist Success Service to guide artists through launching their music, and the benefits of utilizing Web3 for music distribution.
