The forthcoming series, dubbed “Cosmic Genesis,” arrives via the eco-friendly NFT startup OneOf, a platform specifically tailored to meet the red-hot demand for artists and musicians joining the digital collectible revolution.
For fans who choose to embark on Alesso's non-fungible token journey, the promise of free, limited edition drops await. The Swedish dance music luminary will use social media to reveal cryptic clues, which will need to be decoded through the use of a special decoder NFT. The decoder, your guide to unlocking Chapter 1 of the Cosmic Genesis story, can be attained by opting in on the OneOf website. Fans who successfully decode the message will have the Chapter 1 token airdropped to them on October 14th.
The video series includes four chapters in all, each of which represents a new curated audiovisual experience and slice of Alesso's grand vision. Each segment includes new music from the hit-making producer.
