What is Beatport.io?
Beatport.io's mission is to provide its users with a convenient, transparent, and secure environment for exploring and engaging with new digital formats. Culture and community are the cornerstones of Beatport.io. Everyone can join other music lovers, make connections, and gain exclusive access to digital assets not found anywhere else.
This development aims to connect artists, labels, creators, and music enthusiasts with cutting-edge technologies to form a vibrant, creative ecosystem. Utilizing blockchain technology, Beatport.io allows the creation and collection of unique, verified digital projects.
Soon, the team plans to introduce selected projects that cover the entire spectrum of electronic music culture with the goal of inspiring its customers and the broader community to be part of the ecosystem.
Which blockchains are supported by Beatport.io?
Beatport.io is built on the Aventus parachain in the Polkadot ecosystem, a corporate blockchain that is a layer 1 (parachain) on Polkadot.
The Aventus Network is a proof of stake blockchain, requiring much less energy than traditional proof of work blockchains. It is also a fully certified carbon-neutral blockchain, making Beatport.io's NFTs eco-friendly.
Polkadot is a blockchain ecosystem providing the highest levels of security and interaction for its connected networks, known as parachains. As a parachain in Polkadot, the Aventus Network enables Beatport.io to support all layer 1 blockchains currently in the ecosystem and all those that will be added in the future.
Through a secure bridge, the Aventus Network also allows Beatport.io to support Ethereum, a decentralized open-source blockchain with smart contract functionality. It is the second largest blockchain ecosystem in the world after Bitcoin.
Based on this, you can create an account using the specified networks. Creating an account is the first step you can take to join the community.
- Choose between Google and Ethereum (Metamask) login for safe and efficient access to your wallet.
- When you log in for the first time using any of the methods, an account will be automatically created.
- Remember, using different login methods creates two distinct accounts for your use on Beatport.io.
- The platform uses Auth0, the world's most popular authentication provider, for convenient and secure account creation.
- If you choose Ethereum (Metamask) login, your Ethereum address is used for logging in and creating an account. However, this does not determine the location of your valuable NFTs. They will still be safely stored in your wallet on Beatport.io.
You won't need to go through any verifications or email confirmations; you immediately become part of this community and can start using all the product features right away.
Purchases on the Beatport Marketplace
Once you've created an account, you're ready to make a purchase. When buying on Beatport.io, you acquire a unique non-fungible token (NFT), which represents ownership of the item. NFTs use blockchain technology, which authenticates and securely and transparently stores information about the asset, ensuring authenticity and ease of verification.
NFTs represent scarcity, offering a sense of exclusivity and uniqueness in your collection, while Beatport.io's use of blockchain technology ensures transparency, giving artists due recognition and compensation.
Once your account is set up, you can make purchases using fiat assets:
