Our mission:
connect artists with
their fans

Pianity revolutionizes the music industry by enforcing fairer revenues for artists and exclusive content for fans and collectors.

About

Pianity is a music NFT platform – built on environmentally-conscious Arweave technology — where musicians and their community gather to create, sell, buy and collect songs in limited editions. Pianity’s pioneering approach, which includes free listening for all, enables deeper connections between artists and their audience.

Because Pianity treats music as fine art, artists gain a new source of independent revenue while simultaneously enabling fans to grow and showcase their music collections.

Pianity is privately held and headquartered in Paris, France.

Our NFTs are:

Green

Pianity’s built on Arweave, a blockchain that consumes 100 times less than Ethereum.

Fair

$0 minting cost, $0 gas fee, 80% of the transaction goes to the artists.

Eternal

The music asset and the contract metadata are stored together on Arweave.

How we are building the future of music

April 2021
• Pianity was born during Arweave's Open Web Foundry. After the 6 weeks program, we launched the private beta of Pianity.

The Open Web Foundry helps early-stage founders build successful applications running on the Arweave network.

“It was crazy how fast we built the early version of the project. No one wanted to rest. It was too exciting to see artists and collectors so quickly showing interest. We knew we were onto something big... and that this was just the beginning.”

Lancelot, Co-founder & CTO of Pianity

July 2021
🚀 Pianity launches
We did our first public sale with Shika Shika Label, through a series of 6 NFTs from birdsongs of endangered species to raise awareness and funds for their protection.
August 2021
We implemented the first Profit-Sharing NFTs, turning NFT music into a new source of passive income

Each week, collectors receive a fraction of the NFT sales of the previous week. It was the first step to build a Profit-Sharing Community.

“The music industry is broken and we are on a mission to fix it. Everyone helping us to bridge that gap should be rewarded at least as much as us. With this philosophy, we’re the only Profit-Sharing community in the music industry!”

Kevin, Co-founder and CEO of Pianity

September 2021
We launched our Profit Sharing Community token: the $PIA 🎉
While owning PIA tokens, holders get to vote on decisions with the rest of the community.
October 2021
Leaderboards
As we’re building a community-driven music platform, the Leaderboards represent a keystone in our mission. The Leaderboards reward the most active users over the week. Over 26k $PIA are distributed each week.
November 2021
PianityDAO

The community gets to decide on which artists and tracks will be minted and sold as NFTs on the marketplace.

“I am amazed how Web3 is empowering artists and fans. We walk all together toward a new world that will finally value music as an art, while strengthening the connection between artists and their community.”

Simon, Co-founder of Pianity

December 2021
5000 NFTs were sold in a week.
That was over $1.000.000 redistributed to artists!
March 2022
$6.5 Million raised in Seed-Round Funding 🎉

At the end of the day, the only metric that matters is that to date, we redistributed $2 million to artists thanks to NFT sales.
March 2022
Coming Soon
Secondary Market
Soon, every collector will be able to sell the NFTs collected, while artists will keep earning 8% of the transaction each time the song is sold again.
