ComeTogether launches NFTs with Hawk, a case study in innovation

Hawk has always been interested in technology and bringing new ideas to the way he shares his music. He wanted to be the first to bring NFTs to music in Greece. In addition, to bringing new technology as an NFT innovator, Hawk wanted to engage with his fans in a new way by creating an exclusive experience via the NFT offer. The owners of these NFTs not only got a special experience during the initial sale, but are also part of a select community for the future.

Performing artists and live event organizers are looking for ways to increase fan engagement, reward loyal fans and to monetize their fan base. NFTs provide solutions to these challenges. ComeTogether’s NFT solutions provided via UniqTogether include collectibles provided with ticketing or stand-alone.

The Kollectiva NFT collection, consisted of a limited number of 3D NFTs designed by 3D artist KELLOGGS. The execution and development of the NFT project, was done by Hawk and Jo Lids as the project manager, along with the artistic touches from Greg Nerantzakis, as the art director. The owner of each NFT, got exclusive access and received Hawk’s new music track, “Elefantas” from the “LIBERTA” album. KOLLECTIVA GANG NFT owners, also acquired the “Libertarian Role” in the Discord community of the artist. This came with the following unique privileges: Early updates and exclusive access to announcements, giveaways, invitations, tickets, appearances, merchandise and meet ups with the artist.

NFT sales exceed expectations by 20% and the Discord channel experienced accelerated growth with the start of the program.

“The purpose of KOLLECTIVA is to unite people who share the same artistic vision. Humanity’s greatest achievements always come through cooperation and respect for the uniqueness of each one. If we assume that all of us are pieces of a puzzle, KOLLECTIVA is the hand that puts all these pieces together and the result is creation. Join the movement!” said Hawk Greco.

O Hawk έδειχνε πάντα το ενδιαφέρον του για την τεχνολογία. Όπως προαναφέρθηκε στην βιογραφία του, ήταν ο πρώτος καλλιτέχνης που έφερε το Spotify στην Ελλάδα και τώρα έγινε ο πρώτος που κυκλοφόρησε μουσικό κομμάτι του, αποκλειστικά ως NFT. Ήθελε να ανακαλύψει έναν νέο τρόπο αλληλεπίδρασης με το κοινό του και να δημιουργήσει μια αποκλειστική εμπειρία για όσους συμμετείχαν στο project του. Ο στόχος ήταν πως, πέρα από την αποκλειστική πρόσβαση στο μουσικό κομμάτι, οι κάτοχοι των NFT να γίνουν μέλη μιας ξεχωριστής κοινότητας του καλλιτέχνη, για την οποία έχει πολλά σχέδια στο μέλλον.

Οι  καλλιτέχνες και οι διοργανωτές εκδηλώσεων ψάχνουν νέους τρόπους  για να αυξήσουν την αλληλεπίδραση με το κοινό, να επιβραβεύσουν τους πιστούς fans και να δημιουργήσουν νέες πηγές εισοδήματος. Τα NFTs δίνουν την λύση σε αυτό το πρόβλημα. Οι λύσεις NFT της ComeTogether παρέχονται μέσω του UniqTogether και περιλαμβάνουν ψηφιακά συλλεκτικά που κυκλοφορούν σε συνδυασμό με κάποιο εισιτήριο ή ανεξάρτητα. 

H συλλογή NFT “Kollectiva”, αποτελείται από ένα περιορισμένο αριθμό 3D NFTs σχεδιασμένα απο τον 3D artist KELLOGGS. Η ανάπτυξη και η εκτέλεση του NFT project, έγινε από τους Hawk και Jo Lids ως project manager, μαζί με τις καλλιτεχνικές πινελιές του Greg Nerantzakis, ως art director. Κάθε κάτοχος NFT, έλαβε αποκλειστικά στη κατοχή του το νέο κομμάτι του Hawk με τίτλο “Elefantas” από το album “LIBERTA”. Όπως ακριβώς ισχύει και για τον κάτοχο ενός CD, δεν υπάρχουν συνδρομές streaming και το μουσικό κομμάτι “Elefantas” είναι για πάντα δικό τους, δίνοντας σε όλους τους κατόχους τη δυνατότητα να το ακούσουν, να το πουλήσουν ή να το κάνουν δώρο.

Οι πωλήσεις των NFTs ξεπέρασαν τις προσδοκίες κατά 20% και το Discord κανάλι γνώρισε ραγδαία ανάπτυξη με την έναρξη του project.

«Η  KOLLECTIVA έχει ως σκοπό να ενώσει ανθρώπους με όραμα στον καλλιτεχνικό χώρο κάτω από την ίδια στέγη. Τα μεγαλύτερα επιτεύγματα της ανθρωπότητας έρχονται πάντα μέσα από την συνεργασία και τον σεβασμό στην μοναδικότητα του καθενός. Αν υποθέσουμε ότι όλοι είμαστε κομμάτια σ ‘ένα παζλ η KOLLECTIVA είναι το χέρι που ενώνει όλα αυτά τα κομμάτια μαζί με αποτέλεσμα την δημιουργία.!». – Hawk Greco.

ComeTogether signs strategic partnership with SportiveWays for business growth

ComeTogether today announced its latest strategic partnership with SportiveWays aimed at  bringing blockchain technology for ticketing, NFT collectibles and NFT fan club memberships to sports entities.

ComeTogether will work with SportiveWays to promote the concept of NFTs in the world of sports. Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) enable sports teams to develop new revenue streams, increase fan engagement and create an ongoing royalty revenue stream. NFT ticketing can also be included in the solution to combine the topics of attendee management, fan engagement and secondary market control in a move that will solve several of the average fan’s pain points when attending sports events.

What is an NFT? An NFT provides digital ownership of assets. Created through blockchain, they are similar to a cryptocurrency. For collectors, an NFT is a digital representation of collectibles that entails uniqueness or digital scarcity.

SportiveWays has always taken a keen interest in suggesting modern solutions/services to the vast network of sports properties they work with and helping them to launch them when the time is right.

“Fan club NFTs are the next step in closer engagement to fans for all live events, rewarding their loyalty to favorite sports clubs and players,” said Lazaros Penteridis, CEO, ComeTogether.

ComeTogether launches UniqTogether

UniqTogether is a portfolio of NFT solutions to support live event revenue streams post event while building ongoing fan engagement

ComeTogether announced today a new addition to its family of apps – UniqTogether NFT Collectibles. Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) enable event organizers to develop new revenue streams, increase fan engagement and create an ongoing royalty revenue stream long after the event has taken place. Live events of any kind can benefit from NFT solutions – from music and sports to business and culture.

What is an NFT? An NFT provides digital ownership of assets. Created through blockchain, they are similar to a cryptocurrency. For collectors, an NFT is a digital representation of collectibles that entails uniqueness or digital scarcity. A football trading card is a great example to consider. The owner of the NFT would not possess the physical card. Their token represents their ownership (or partial ownership) of the item and entitles them to sell and profit from this card.

The new portfolio includes collectibles, event memories and fan clubs all as NFTs. Fan clubs can be developed for artists or sports properties to engage more closely with their fans or event organizers to provide added to value to their attendees. The utility of fan club NFTs can include blockchain ticketing, specialized pricing, membership perks and exclusive content. Learn more about our NFT portfolio here.

“Fan club NFTs are the next step in closer engagement to fans for all live events, rewarding their loyalty to favorite performing artists and sports players,” said Lazaros Penteridis, CEO, ComeTogether.

ComeTogether realizes that not everyone is a crypto-native, so we make it easy for everyone to buy/sell through our NFT marketplace. In addition to being able to trade in cryptocurrency (ETH), we also support fiat (Euro, USD, etc) currencies. In addition, we do not charge any Ethereum (gas) fees when issuing, redeeming and exchanging NFTs.
