/PRNewswire/ — World-renowned, German-American DJ and music producer Markus Schulz is partnering with Sweet to release a brand new collection of NFTs centering around his eighth studio album, “Escape.” This will be Markus’s first collection of one-of-a-kind, tradable NFTs that are custom-designed around his brand, minted, and authenticated on the public blockchain. The NFTs commemorate the “Escape” album artwork, the DJing on tour experience, specific songs off the album, and, of course, Markus himself.
“Working in conjunction with Sweet, I’m super excited to launch my first digital collectibles as part of the NFT community,” Markus Schultz said. “This is the future and a topic I’ve become very interested in. The first line of collectibles we’ve designed are based on The ESCAPE Tour, 6 coins, some rare, some easy to find.”
The very first collectible will be gifted to fans on a first come, first served basis here; fans can collect the rest of the set in the Sweet marketplace in-app, including the uber-rare capstone “Markus Schulz Rare Gold Coin”, of which only 5 NFTs will be minted. A variety of other collectibles will be available for every fan, from the enthusiast to the collector.
