🎙 New Podcast Episode

Mint Season 4 episode 33 welcomes Benny Conn, who’s a developer at Gallery.so and co-founder of Beat Foundry, an NFT platform for entirely on-chain generative and curated music. Benny is back for a second episode on season four of Mint mainly because I love what the team is building at Beat Foundry, his energy and passion for music beams every time he talks about what he does. It’s genuinely contagious.

  • 31:33 - Why Does the Music File Itself Need to Be On-Chain?
