Last month, Roc-A-Fella Records sued co-owner Damon Dash for attempting to promote an tied to Jay-Z’s album “Reasonable Doubt.”
Typically, when artists attempt to money in by “making an NFT of” a music or an album, they’re speaking a few file (sometimes a picture or video) related to the music. An NFT is simply a kind of unique cryptocurrency that’s hooked up to a file. Buying an NFT will get you the token and a replica of the file—nothing extra.
But based on Roc-A-Fella’s submitting, Dash was allegedly attempting to promote the “ownership of the copyright” to “Reasonable Doubt” together with the NFT. The label goes on to say that whereas Dash could personal one third of the corporate, he doesn’t personal the copyright to any particular person recordings, and “can’t sell what he doesn’t own.”
Now, as a substitute of auctioning off the copyright to “Reasonable Doubt,” Dash is attempting to public sale off his complete stake in Roc-A-Fella. Three days in the past, he announced a brand new NFT referred to as “It’s The Roc,” which an outline guarantees “will be gifted to the highest bidder on Damon Dash’s 1/3 interest in Roc-A-Fella Inc.”
“Damon Dash is auctioning his ⅓ interest in Roc-A-Fella Inc. which owns Reasonable Doubt, Jay-Z’s first album,” reads an explanatory blurb on the web site Dashnftgallery.io.
Selling this sort of fairness shouldn’t be one thing you are able to do through an NFT public sale alone; “It’s The Roc” is basically a non-binding promise from Dash that he’ll promote you his stake in the corporate, at some unspecified level in the longer term.
Though the NFT is available to view on OpenSea and Foundation, it hasn’t been formally listed. Instead, Dash is asking events to ship their bids to an Ethereum address linked on the website. The bidding is described as “private,” however after we scanned the QR code on the location, we had been simply requested to ship the cash instantly:
There’s no cap on what you may ship the tackle, however the web site is asking for a minimal bid of $10,000,000 “or equivalent in the following currencies: Bitcoin, Ethereium [sic], Pounds, Euros.”
Scanning the identical QR code on the Coinbase Wallet app will get you this:
The public sale ends July 26 at 5pm Pacific.
