BEIJING, Feb. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Kuke Music Holding Limited ("Kuke" or the "Company") (NYSE: KUKE), a leading classical music service platform, today announced that the Company has established a blockchain business unit and completed a strategic investment in KOLO, a leading international non-fungible token (NFT) platform for classical music in the Metaverse.
Kuke's blockchain business unit aims to utilize blockchain technology to validate, authorize, and protect digital music copyrights. In addition, the Company's strategic investment in KOLO will further enable the development of a consumer-oriented, classical music-focused and global NFT application in the Metaverse. The NFT application will leverage the diversified classical music copyright resources of the Company and Naxos, the Company's strategic global business partner and the largest independent classical music content provider in the world, and further enhance the transaction liquidity, platform interoperability and ease of sharing of digital music assets.
As the general public increasingly acknowledges that blockchain technology represents one of the most exciting paradigm shifts in the history of technology, and NFT applications are leading the global development trend in industries such as gaming, art, and music, the Company intends to utilize blockchain technology and NFT applications to drive innovation in the classical music industry, increase the monetization of classical music digital assets, build a digital economy for musicians, provide value to users, and foster mutually-beneficial partnerships among industry participants.
The KOLO platform has auctioned four NFTs within the past month, namely, Spring Festival Overture, Brahms- Violin Concerto in D Major, Op.77, and J.S.BACH – Cello Suite No.1, BWV 1007, as well as Beethoven- Piano Sonata No.14 in C- Sharp Minor, Op.27, "Moonlight", all of which were licensed by Naxos. The auctions have drawn considerable attention and were completed at attractive prices within a few minutes. Notable on the list was the "Spring Festival Overture" composed by well-known composer Huanzhi Li. This classic piece has been played at the beginning of every Chinese New Year Gala for over 30 years. KOLO plans to release new NFTs licensed by Naxos and Kuke on a weekly basis starting mid-February 2022.
