Warner's Web3 Journey
No stranger to the web3 stage, Warner Music Group has already been a dynamic presence in the digital landscape. Through strategic alliances with OneOf, Splinterlands, OpenSea, DRESSX, and Roblox, Warner has ventured into various web3 initiatives, each offering its unique melody to the company's growing web3 repertoire.
For instance, the launch of Rhythm City on Roblox exemplified an innovative symphony that merged gaming and music, creating an immersive metaverse experience for users.

The program is designed to support individuals, protocols, and platforms that push boundaries and reimagine the application of technologies to create, share, and experience music.
