Limewire, once known as the file-sharing service, is back, but now as a platform to carry digital collectibles for all. The platform was resurrected by two Austrian entrepreneurs, Paul and Julián Zehetmayr.
This time the platform is renewed and with announcements by important artists that will launch NFT in this space. One of the first to be announced was Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. He is not the only one, it was also known that singers like Dillon Francis, singer and actor Nicky Jam, Grammy-winning singer Brandy, A$AP Mob’s A$AP TyY and British rapper Aitch will also be on this platform. Seeing the names of personalities and celebrities in the world of cryptocurrencies is not something new. This time, what the announcement does is confirm that the trend continues to grow and will surely grow more in the near future.
