This partnership also represents the very first time Fanaply is issuing NFTs on the Polygon blockchain, instead of ERC-721 NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. Fanaply has always had an environmentally friendly approach to NFTs since inception, and their managed wallet system and partnership with Offsetra have made them a 100% carbon neutral NFT marketplace. To further improve energy efficiency, user experience and NFT costs, Fanaply has now added the Polygon blockchain to their platform. Polygon is 99.99% more energy-efficient than industry-standard layer 1 blockchains, drastically reducing the environmental impact and gas fees.
“Bringing limited-edition digital assets to a world class artist like Lukas Graham is central to Fanaply’s belief that NFTs are about so much more than speculation,” said Grant Dexter, co-founder and CEO of Fanaply. “They not only let fans commemorate amazing moments, memories and milestones of the musicians they love, but for the first time, fans can have true digital ownership. Our NFTs are inclusive, environmentally friendly, and are powerful new tools to engage fans and begin a true one to one relationship with them.”
About Lukas Graham
Since his eponymous global debut in 2016, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum artist Lukas Graham has continued to impact audiences around the world, solidifying his status as one of the biggest breakout acts in music. His multi-platinum song “Love Someone,” from 3 (The Purple Album), has now been streamed more than 1 billion times worldwide and is 18X Certified Platinum across multiple continents, with performances on Good Morning America, American Idol, The Bachelorette, Dancing with the Stars, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Late Night with Seth Meyers, LIVE with Kelly & Ryan and more. Lukas Graham became a breakthrough star with his 2016 self-titled debut album, spawning the 7X platinum, 3X GRAMMY® nominated hit “7 Years,” which has now been streamed 3 billion times globally. The smash was the highest-selling single by a debut artist in 2016, and catapulted the Danish superstar to sold-out tours around the world, critical acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and Billboard, and countless television performances, including The GRAMMY® Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards, where he was also nominated for “Best New Artist.” The song transformed Lukas’ life into a whirlwind — a world away from his beginnings, born on a couch in Christiania, an impoverished quasi-commune located in the center of Copenhagen. Most recently, he shared singles “Call My Name” and “Happy For You,” following a series of track releases over the past two years including collaborations with Wiz Khalifa on “Where I’m From” and G-Eazy on “Share That Love,” plus solo tracks “Scars,” “Love Songs” and “Lie.” He is currently in the studio working on his next album, due out later this year.
