Built on the Tezos blockchain, OneOf claims that its NFT mints are up to two million times more energy-efficient than its competitors. Specifically designed with the music community in mind, OneOf offers various forms of NFTs ranging from collectible and generative PFPs, to music royalties, and real life experiences.

Since going live in September 2021, it has launched NFT collections with artists major and independent artists including Doja Cat, Whitney Houston, Alesso, The Game, Chief Keef, Pia Mia, and more.
In December, an NFT of a previously unreleased recording of 17-year-old Whitney Houston singing was sold for $1 million, the highest-priced NFT auctioned on the Tezos (XTZ) blockchain.
“Web3 is a massive leap forward in technology: it will expand the scale and scope of both human and machine interactions far beyond what we can imagine today,” said Oana Ruxandra, Chief Digital Officer & EVP, Business Development, Warner Music Group. “Partnering with OneOf, a leader in the emerging technology space of Web3 and NFTs, gives our artists an edge in more authentically building one-to-one relationships with their fans and winning in the new Web3 economy.
