We have Carolin Wend, the CEO of Mintbase with us today. We're excited to ask her some questions from the community and actually some from our team. And I’ve been watching a lot of your videos, your outspoken individual, and actual role model to a lot of female entrepreneurs, Caroline. So, thank you for what you do.
How did you get into blockchain? How did this all happen?
How is Mintbase Positioning themselves?
What was it about NFTs? What made you make that jump in?
With NFTs, you can fractionalize ownership. On the new Mintbase on Near blockchain, there is a split revenue model. So everytime an NFT is purchased or sold, the artist can decide the allocation of the percentage of the sale and who it will go to.
The theory can stay forever with the royalty function and it is really fascinating that you can really take control and monetize your content as a creator. We have friends in Berlin who are DJs and they have 1 million streams a year and they only get a thousand Euros for it. We aim to push people to become their own independent platform. Although we are a platform but as NFTs, you can move your NFTs wherever you want and it does not need to stay in the Mintbase ecosystem.

Carolin Wend: So all about it’s the vision that it can really change the world and make the world a better place. I know it sounds very cheesy, but yeah, I really believe in it. And Nate actually like saw the vision and he used to work for a company called bombs where they try to fractionalize ownership of shares. Because if you think about the world we live in right now, we don’t really own chairs. We don’t really own tickets or music. It’s, there’s no ownership on the internet. and with NFTs, you can not only own stuff, but you can even fractionalized ownership. So what, like, you know, now on the new Mia mint base, we have a mint based on near blockchain. We have like the split revenue splits, right? So every time you purchase on your salad NFTs, I don’t know a musician you can decide, okay. I want to give 10% to my grandma and 20% to my mom or whatever. And it’s.
Yeah, the logic can stay forever with the royalty function, or you can just set it for, for the first time sales. So that’s really fascinating and you can really take control. You can monetize your content. And as a creator, I mean, it’s a really time to, to change something. Because if you look at normal Musicians, like we have many friends in Berlin who are DJs and they have 1 million streams a year and they get like, maybe, I don’t know, a thousand Euros or something. This is crazy. And they are the people who create value. It’s not the big platforms. And we are actually like pushing people to become independent of platforms. Although we are a platform, but you know, you can move the NFTs wherever you want. They don’t need to stay in the mid base ecosystem.
