This iPhone app lets anybody mint an NFT for anything for free
A new iPhone app called S!ng lets any artist create and mint their own NFT for free, directly from their mobile device. Some big-name musicians, an ex-Apple exec have launched the free iOS app, that lets artists quickly mint nonfungible tokens.
Pretty much anybody can mint an NFT (nonfungible token) of their work on the Ethereum blockchain. An NFT is a type of cryptographic token that signifies true ownership of a digital asset, such as a piece of digital artwork.
Creators can upload images (JPEG, BMP, or TIFF files) or audio (WAV, MP3, MIDI, PTX, PTF, or M4A) to the S!ng app, or record audio directly via the phone’s microphone. Once creators have minted an NFT for their work, it can be sold or licensed to others online if there’s a market for it. There is no minimum or maximum price that creators can ask for their NFTs.
S!NG is the easiest way to put a stamp on an idea, label it as your own, convert it to an NFT and stored it in a centralised portfolio. They are kept literally at your fingertips. In just a matter of weeks, S!NG will transition into the best place to share those ideas without hesitation, to be a foundation of collaborations large and small, and even to monetise those ideas, those NFTs when creators are ready. All from that central portfolio.
S!ng is a product of a startup co-founded by Geoff Osler, an ex-Apple executive. He told Fast Company the app is meant for “anyone who creates or manages creative work, including songwriters, photographers, visual artists, beat makers, and authors.”
