Sound Opens Collector Presale Access Feature
Music NFT platform Sound has released a new feature allowing Sound NFT collectors exclusive presale access to new drops.
Sound’s latest feature rewards Sound NFT collectors by allocating a portion of the total supply of new drops to Sound holders. Artists returning to the platform for new releases, can allocate up to 25 of the 50 available editions to holders of their previous drops; whereas new artists releasing on Sound for the first time will have 10 editions reserved for the top 10 overall Sound NFT collectors. Any editions that are unsold in the presale will be automatically released in the public offering.
The new presale feature went live on Tuesday with Vic Mensa’s new drop, which you can check out here.
