LimeWire, Relaunching as an NFT Marketplace, Announces Partnerships with Ushuaïa & Hï Ibiza
LimeWire was one of the first big file sharing programs available to the masses, aside from Napster. Though LimeWire came out a year later, Napster was shut down in 2002 and so LimeWire existed for another 8 years before its final release was issued in October 2010. Now, the platform is relaunching as, you guessed it, an NFT marketplace.
As part of the relaunch, LimeWire has announced a first of its kind partnership with legendary Ibiza clubs Ushuaïa & Hï Ibiza, giving LimeWire Original holders exclusive access to yet another series of in-person experiences. This partnership offers free club entry as well as an exclusive launch-party invite.
Paul and Julian Zehetmayr, LimeWire Co-CEOs, commented: “Ushuaïa is an iconic Ibiza outdoor space and Hï has just been voted the number one club in the world. Providing our LimeWire Original holders with exclusive access during this first full season since the pandemic sets the benchmark for the types of real-life experiences we intend to unlock for our customers. This is the first of many LimeWire partnerships, which will bring NFT music experiences to life – beyond just visual art.”
Yann Pissenem, CEO and founder of The Night League, which owns and operates Hï Ibiza and Ushuaïa Ibiza added: “The NFT collectible space is a market we have been wanting to enter but we were looking for the right experience to offer our guests with the right partner. The exclusive access for LimeWire Original holders ticks all the boxes – not only is LimeWire a brand that historically holds strong music ties but the upcoming artist content is unlike anything we have seen so far. ”
Also, as part of this partnership, subscribers to Ushuaïa’s newsletter will receive an exclusive invite to purchase a LimeWire Original.
To celebrate the partnership, a launch party has been organized in Ushuaïa with a dedicated VIP area for LimeWire Original Holders including an open bar from 7pm until 12am.
If you happen to hold a LimeWire Original and also find yourself in Ibiza, this works out great for you.
