JYP Entertainment enters K-Pop based 'NFT Platform' business


JYP Entertainment, home to popular groups like ITZY, Stray Kids, and TWICE, announced that it will enter a K-pop-based NFT platform business.

JYP made an announcement on July 2 that it has signed a strategic business partnership with Dunamu, which operates South Korea's No. 1 digital asset exchange called 'Upbit.' It will share platform business that develops, provides, and operates NFT-linked digital goods production, distribution, transaction, and a series of additional services centered on K-pop.

Dunamu is going to invest in acquiring JYP's shares and invest in establishing a new corporation for joint business with JYP. As a strategic investor, JYP is planning to provide IP (Intellectual Property) and contents as well as joint projects.

Meanwhile, JYP paid around 21.3 billion KRW (18.77 Million USD) to acquire a 23.3 percent stake in the SM Studios fandom-based platform 'DearU Bubble' on the 4th of last month. The company will be able to expand its business to various platforms business areas.

Interesting. Didn't expect JYP Ent to enter the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry. Still, I can sort of see the value in it, especially if they're heading for NFT technology as a way to create and distribute unique digital goods / merchandise for their artists. NFT technology means that you own the absolutely unique, one-and-only copy of whatever it is you're buying. This is more of a merchandising / goods distribution platform rather than fan-communications platform unlike Bubble. Wonder what sort of joint projects JYP Ent is going to create with Upbit?

Could we have a digital gallery of TWICE's Chaeyoung's artwork to be auctioned off perhaps? Or maybe unsold songs composed by Day6 or Stray Kids? (Or, I suppose, your standard Kpop collectible merchandise like digital autographed photocards and stuff like that...)

Interesting move. I'll be looking forward to the details of what they're going to put out as NFTs.
