T-Series is all set to enter the world of metaverses/non-fungible tokens (NFTs) as they partner with HEFTY Entertainment, a division of Hungama Digital Media. NFTs will be one of the association’s unmatched ‘money can’t buy experiences. The two companies collaborate as part of a partnership with Polygon – the leading Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development platform.
T-Series and Hungama have had a long-standing association that has led to their strategic partnership. Together, T-Series and Hungama will create the next big digital revolution, utilizing their extensive global distribution network and an enviable library of two lakh songs, 65,000 music videos, and 150+ films across Indian languages.
Our vision for Hefty Metaverse is to create an ecosystem that helps users to collaborate, interact, and engage with thriving web 3.0 communities that transition consumers into the Metaverse. By creating NFTs and rare collectibles, Hungama will enable fans to access special moments from T-Series’ vast catalog.
