Allah Rakha Rahman, the Indian composer and singer known for the Grammy Award-winning song “Jai Ho,” has announced the launch of his own metaverse platform for artists and their music.
Rahman tweeted on Jan. 6 that his “Katraar” metaverse “is one step closer to launching.”
He attached a video of him explaining the upcoming platform, which will use “decentralised technology,” according to its website (see here.)
Rahman said his vision for the platform was to “bring in new talents, technologies, and […] direct revenue for artists,” with one revenue stream seemingly the integration of NFTs.
“Right now we are working with the HBAR Foundation to do many cool things, one is bringing a lot of NFTs.”
The HBAR Foundation is a not-for-profit independent organization of the distributed ledger firm Hedera Hashgraph, the creator of the ledger and cryptocurrency Hedera.
He added there’s also “an undisclosed project based on virtual beings” but did not provide further details.
