Opulous Announces June 30th Token Offering on TrustSwap Launchpad

Opulous is set to collaborate with TrustSwap for their upcoming ASA $OPUL token offering on June 30th 2021 starting at 9:00 AM PST.

Opulous is the first platform of its kind, bringing Decentralized Finance to the music industry. The project will provide a launchpad for the first copyright-backed Music NFTs as well as DeFi loans that will change how artists access the funding they need.

They are releasing a multi-chain token on Ethereum and Algorand and offering users the option to choose which they’d prefer to use on the platform. Opulous is currently working with Algorand to build a bridge that will facilitate transfers between both blockchains.

Meanwhile, partnerships and agreements with major exchanges are being established to support their multi-chain ETH/ASA $OPUL token. This means users will be able to deposit ETH tokens, then withdraw ASA, and vice-versa.

The Opulous platform has three main functions:

  • NFT Launchpad
  • NFT Exchange
  • DeFi Loans

Opulous Music NFTs are a new form of Non-Fungible Token that entitles holders to a share of a song’s future royalty earnings, and other exclusive rewards, in exchange for social media support.

Opulous peer-to-peer DeFi loans cut out traditional banks, middle-men, and major labels, allowing artists to access up-front cash based on the predictable royalties they generate over 12 months.

The Opulous Ecosystem

NFT Launchpad

Opulous is the first platform to launch copyright-backed Music NFTs. Unlike other NFTs, Opulous tokens offer holders a share in the music’s future royalty earnings alongside exclusive rewards and fan experiences.

Whoever owns these groundbreaking NFTs will get paid every time the song is played on Spotify and other major music services. That also means their value can increase as an artist’s career progresses.

Fans and investors will not only receive royalty payments, but also be able to unlock other exclusive rewards such as backstage passes, gig tickets, and merchandise, simply by sharing the music on social media.

NFT owners can also track and withdraw their earnings directly from their Opulous account and trade their NFTs on the upcoming Opulous NFT Exchange.

NFT Exchange

The Opulous NFT Exchange creates a new sharing economy based on music where anyone can buy and trade copyright-backed Music NFTs to earn a share of the royalties generated.

For example, a music fan could find an underrated song they know is going to become more popular over time.

They can buy it as an Opulous NFT, support an upcoming artist right from the start of their career and earn ever-increasing rewards as the track becomes more valuable while gaining popularity.

DeFi Loans

Opulous offers low-risk DeFi loans backed by real-world music assets and future royalties.

Despite earning a stable royalty income, too many artists are turned away by traditional banks or forced into unfair deals with major labels.

By evaluating an artist’s royalty reports from previous years, Opulous can accurately predict how much money the artist will generate over the next 12 months and offer this amount as a loan.

On the other side, investors can stake their crypto assets on the platform to generate high returns. Unlike most DeFi platforms, Opulous loans are always backed by predictable music assets vetted by the expert team, which greatly reduces risk on investment. In order to avoid loan defaults, Opulous will hold the copyrights used as collateral until the full amount is paid back.

Token Economy

Transactions within Opulous will use the platform’s native $OPUL token, which has a fixed supply and can be purchased through multiple decentralized and centralized exchanges. Users will also be able to purchase NFTs directly using credit or debit cards.

Users can stake $OPUL tokens in high-interest lending pools. Token holders will also receive special discounts on certain transactions as well as exclusive access to NFT drops from major artists.

Team and Advisors

Opulous has attracted a senior team and board of expert advisors from across the music and crypto worlds.
