In its most recent desktop version, the vintage media player Winamp now accepts music NFTs built on the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains.
With the new web3-focused support, users can load music from ERC-721 and ERC-1155 tokens on Ethereum and Polygon and connect their Metamask wallets from Chrome, Firefox, and Brave.
“The genesis of Winamp has always been about accessibility and innovation, and today we are proud to launch the very first standalone player reading audio NFTs, as well as any other existing formats,” CEO Alexandre Saboundjian said in a release.
“Winamp was a key part of the first digital music innovation, when mp3s changed the way we listen and enjoy music,” Saboundjian added. “Now we’re supporting the leading edge of the next one, as more and more artists explore web3 and its potential.”
The update improves security, decreases Winamp’s memory footprint, and adds support for music NFTs.
When Winamp was first introduced in 1997, it quickly became the standard Windows media player. Since then, a number of rival media platforms, including Windows Media Player and Apple Music, have long since surpassed it.
