Last week, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda announced and sold off 5,000 NFTs of his ZIGGURATS musical collection. Each of the 5,000 items were designed by Mike, featuring graphics that were unique in their own way, and a musical clip.

The NFTs are all sold out, but he’s now put the music online to listen to anyway. Check it out.

Explaining his idea, Mike said he wanted this to be a way of getting people into NFTs, while also making sure he was using the most green methods possible.

"So I designed this release to be an easy ‘first NFT,’” he explained. “ There are multiple blockchains, this release is on Tezos. I chose Tezos because it's a green blockchain, with one of the lowest carbon footprints of any popular chain. We've all bought an app we ‘own,’ like Microsoft Word, or a music plugin, or an item in a game. But those items are unlimited in number. The difference here is that the NFT is a limited edition, highlighting the value of authenticity, rarity, and originality."
