NYC-based creative music agency Groove Guild has announced the company will now accept cryptocurrencies as payment.
Clients will have the opportunity to pay for the company’s expert original music, sound design, sonic strategy and music supervision services through fast and secure payments via Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Dogecoin, Solana, Avalanche, SuperFarm, TerraUSD, and USD Coin.
Depending on the scope of work, they will consider accepting Bored Ape Yacht Club, and other NFTs in exchange for music and sound services. Payments made in cryptocurrencies or NFTs will be made at the rate applicable at the payment date.
Notes Groove Guild Creative Director & Partner Paul Riggio, “We have always been passionate about innovating at the intersection of creativity and technology and partnering with clients that have a similar excitement for future-facing advancements, so it’s exciting to be able to offer these kinds of rapidly expanding payment options. Let’s welcome the citizens into the Citadel and let the music flow.”
This move marks a continuation of Groove Guild’s venture with blockchain technology, with Riggio having recently crafted the original music for an NFT in partnership with artist Cryptop0p and Cannacity in celebration of 4/20.
