Napster is the original music industry disruptor and pioneer in music streaming and subscription services. Founded in 1999, the iconic peer-to-peer service revolutionized the way generations discovered and accessed music around the world. Immersive music platform, MelodyVR, acquired Napster in 2020, forming the Napster Group. Then in May 2022, crypto-focused investment firm, Hivemind Capital, and blockchain platform, Algorand, announced a deal to take Napster private – and once again revolutionize the music industry by bringing blockchain and Web3 to artists and fans. 2022 will see the launch of a reimagined Napster, which will become the world’s first ever music entertainment platform to combine immersive visual content and music streaming.
