Music industry veterans led by Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, Scott Storch, All American Rejects, Eve, The Black Eyed Peas’ apl.de.ap, among others, are committed to auctioning off custom digital collectibles via the newly established Cryptograph platform to benefit charitable causes such as Global Wildlife Conservation. Having kicked off with Tom Morello in their music auction block on October 22nd, the blockchain based digital collectible auction site Cryptograph (powered by Ethereum) features one-of-a-kind music collectibles by these top artists, with Eve’s auction currently underway.
The recently launched platform Cryptograph brings new innovations to the music industry, with the introduction of their highly anticipated innovative digital auction house initially kicking off on July 6th, 2020. Cryptograph is creating a name as a market leader in blockchain based digital collectibles, also known as NFT’s (Non-Fungible Tokens), featuring digital art and memorabilia from a wide variety of world renowned artists and icons.
Cryptograph is positioned to solve some of the major problems currently plaguing the music industry, primarily giving artists and musicians an opportunity to see more of the value form their work, particularly over the long term. Famed music Industry producer and songwriter Scott Storch is also participating in the crypto auction platform.
Scott Storch states, “Cryptograph’s blockchain technology will have huge disruptive implications on many industries including music. Blockchain technology has made it possible for my art and my industry to thrive in an autonomous way, allowing the creative freedom to produce and self publish art and control the financial long term value that the work generates in an automated, permission-less, secure, transparent and trustless way.”
Co-founding partner Tommy Alastra adds, “We want Cryptograph to become the world’s leading publishing, auctioning, trading and discovery platform for the new market of collectible digital assets. Giving creators a new way to truly realize the intrinsic value of their work over the long-term and giving collectors something special and historical they truly own. We intend on achieving all of this whilst at the same redefining the way philanthropy is done forever by bringing charitable giving and fundraising into the future.”
Cryptograph was founded by a team of entrepreneurs, impact investors, and blockchain pioneers who share a joint interest in using technology to do good, inclusive of Tommy Alastra, Edouard Bessire, Guillaume Gonnaud, Anthony John Bryan, and Hugo McDonaugh (who also serves as Cryptograph’s CEO).
