NFT continues to attract celebrities from different backgrounds. Mike Shinoda, the historic second lead singer of Linkin Park, had already expressed his desire to take advantage of the ecosystem. He just released an NFT on the Tezos blockchain (XTZ) and even promises to provide more in the future.
NFTs galore on Tezos?
Apart from music, Mike Shinoda, the second singer of the group Linkin Park, is also fond of the world of graphics. So it’s quite natural that he took part in the NFT adventure. He also painted several works of art, some of which were presented at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.
A little anecdote: for Linkin Park’s second album, Mike Shinoda had drawn the cover in collaboration with a Delta artist, specialized in graffiti. The process of creation was filmed, and the video was incorporated on the CD of the album.
To continue the momentum, Shinoda has recently offered for sale an NFT made live on Twitch, called “Brain Dump”, recoverable if you have a Tezos wallet.
(…) I thought it would be a nice experience as a first release on HEN – for free. Only personal non-commercial use and resale rights, limited in the NFT, are granted. All other terms can be found here.”Mike Shinoda
Available for purchase for 290 XTZ, or about $2,000 at current prices, he is offering 100 copies.
A nice publicity stunt by Mike Shinoda
Mike Shinoda’s little story was quickly picked up by Tezos and the singer’s fans, who were quick to create a Reddit post for the occasion, titled: “Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda on XTZ too. Tezos is the future”.
The singer also promises to provide more NFTs in the near future.

One more little anecdote in this fabulous NFT universe! The idea of owning an artist’s work seems to be more and more essential for the fans, and the artists intend to take advantage of this craze. In the meantime, the fashion is also to launch NFT marketplaces, as PancakeSwap will do soon.
