Non-Fungible Tokens


RDU 98.5FM alongside SALTBOX Studios and Tyanhaus, with the support of the Christchurch City Council, is subsidising access for Ōtautahi musicians to create and promote new work. The programme subsidises and allows access for 20 artists or bands to produce unreleased pieces of music.

We are excited to announce the release of our ŌMAP NFT Collection on the Non-fungible token marketplace, OpenSea, starting with music from our June and July recipients. Continuing with 2 new artists’ work being minted and added to the collection each month until May 2023.


A relatively new concept in the Web3 space, these music NFTs will be able to provide extra support for artists, where their tracks will be able to be sold and allow for artist funding directly from fans or collectors. As an alternative route to the current trend of digital streaming platforms, we are offering the artists some extra value in the music industry.

Because at RDU 98.5FM and SALTBOX Studios, we believe if you have a passion and gift for music, you should be able to pursue it as a career!

Each drop contains two new unreleased pieces of music from Ōtautahi artists.
