I wrote a children’s song called “Drone Safety Song for Kids” and as a fun project, I wanted a limited edition to be added as a music NFT on the blockchain.
If you’re a musician looking to break into the world of blockchain, this article will show you how to mint your music as a non-fungible token (NFT) on Opensea, the world’s largest NFT marketplace.
What exactly is a NFT (non-fungible token)?
Simply put NFT is a unique digital asset that is stored on a blockchain. In the case of music, this could be a unique digital recording of a song, or even a limited edition physical recording like a CD or vinyl record.
Minting your music as an NFT on Opensea
(1). The first thing you’ll want to do is set up your collection settings. This includes things like the name of your collection, the number of items in the collection, and any metadata you want to include (such as album art or lyrics).
(2). Next, you’ll want to add your music NFT to the collection you just created. This is where you’ll upload the audio file itself, along with any other relevant information like the title of the song and the artist’s name.
(3). Finally, it’s time to list your music NFT on the marketplace itself. This is where you’ll set the price of your NFT, as well as any additional details you want to include in the listing.
Best Tip for Adding your Music NFT
Before you start the process of adding your music NFT to Opensea, it’s important to have all of your information and images ready to go. This will make it much easier to copy and paste into the required fields, and it will also help with search engine optimisation (SEO) by including relevant keywords in your titles and copy.

Why mint your music as an NFT on Opensea?
For one, it allows you to offer a unique, limited-edition version of your music to your fans. This could be especially appealing to collectors or diehard fans who are willing to pay a premium for something rare and special. Plus, by using the blockchain to store and sell your NFT, you have the added security and transparency of a decentralised network.
It’s worth noting that the goal of minting our children’s song as an NFT on Opensea wasn’t necessarily to make millions of dollars. Instead, any profit made from NFT sales will be reinvested into purchasing “Drone Adventure” children’s books, which will be supplied for free to kindergartens and primary schools.
Overall, minting your music as an NFT on Opensea is a great way to offer something unique to your fans. It’s a relatively straightforward process once you have all of your information ready to go. Please watch the video above for the exact settings for each input field.
