Taobao Music Festival started in 2016
Taobao is a subsidiary of Chinese giant Alibaba. The e-commerce site has made a name for itself over the past five years with the Taobao Music Festival which started in 2016. This year, the sixth festival will be held.
The aim of the Taobao Music Festival is to promote Chinese artists and their works by organizing a real exhibition of their works. This is the first time that the festival has hosted the sale of NFT. It can be a revolutionary festival in the NFT industry, paving the way for more such exhibitions.
Registration in a NEAR wallet is mandatory for all buyers
It is mandatory for all buyers to register on a link that they will provide on their mobile phones. The link will direct them to a NEAR wallet. This year’s Taobao Music Festival is powered by the partnership of NEAR Protocol and Web3Games, and therefore, NEAR wallet is mandatory to receive digital NFT for any buyer.
In May, when another Alibaba subsidiary, Alipay, launched two of its NFT tokens, around 16,000 of those tokens were sold within an hour. This art would appear on the payment page of all users who purchased these tokens.
