In 2022, LimeWire made its return to the scene. This time though, it relaunched as an NFT marketplace. As a visionary NFT marketplace in the music industry, they sought to redefine how artists and fans interacted by harnessing the power of tokenization.

As the defunct platform gets a crypto makeover, Paul and Julian Zehetmayr will be relaunching under a new company, LimeWire GmbH, with no affiliation to LimeWire’s previous team. This pair of entrepreneurs in Austria bought the rights to LimeWire.

LimeWire’s NFT Platform: Developed on the Algorand network, the platform aims to cater to content creators and provide them with a platform to grow their fan bases and generate recurring revenue. LimeWire offers an inclusive marketplace accessible to newcomers, simplifying the process of purchasing and trading NFTs. LimeWire differentiates itself from other NFT marketplaces like OpenSea, Magic Eden, and Solanart by offering easy sign-up processes, diverse payment options, and measures against copyright infringement.

Launched in mid-2022, LimeWire Originals is a limited collection of 10,000 digital collectible avatars living on the Ethereum blockchain. Owning a LimeWire Original represents the highest level of membership the LimeWire community has to offer.

LimeWire leverages the power of tokenization and issues the LMWR Token

If you have been following us for some time, then you should know by now our stance on tokenization. Tokenization has emerged as a transformative force, enabling creators to digitize and monetize content in ways previously inaccessible. 

Through the issuance of tokens, whether they are utility tokens, security tokens, or non-fungible tokens (NFTs), creators can unlock liquidity, democratize ownership, and create new opportunities for engagement and value exchange.

LimeWire clearly holds the same standpoint about tokenization. Not only are they using NFTs to empower content creators with easy means to monetize content, but also conducted a token offering, raising around $17.5 million from private and public investors.

1 billion LimeWire tokens were issued, and the current total supply of the LMWR Token is at 938,045,267 tokens. The LimeWire Token (LMWR) is a utility token enabling its holders to make purchases on the platform, earn staking, activity and royalty rewards and execute voting rights.

Streamlining LimeWire Token Creation with Bitbond Token Tool

In order to proceed with issuing its LMWR Token, LimeWire decided to outsource the token creation process rather than program the smart contracts themselves. Why would they utilize a third party tokenization platform such as Token Tool to create their tokens? 

Simplifying the process

Bitbond Token Tool drastically simplified the token creation process for LimeWire, empowering them to focus on their core business of building an exceptional NFT marketplace. It also allowed them to concentrate resources on promoting their token offering, rather than spend time and money developing industry-grade smart contracts for their tokens.

Tokenization requires specific technical knowledge that is widely available. Especially when ensuring that the smart contracts are robust in terms of security. By using Token Tool user-friendly interface and comprehensive functionalities, LimeWire seamlessly navigated through the complexities of tokenization.

Compliance and Security 

Compliance and security are another factor that led to using Bitbond Token Tool for the issuance of the LimeWIre Token. When carrying out a regulated transaction, it is important to ensure compliance with regulatory frameworks and token standards. Token Tool offers a wide variety of features that enable seamless compliance. 

Token Tool also offered robust security measures, safeguarding the integrity and safety of LimeWire’s token, instilling trust among their community of users. As a Web3 token generator, Token Tool is easily integratable  with institutional level digital asset custody solutions.

As LimeWire used Fireblocks as the wallet solution for safekeeping the assets, Token Tool’s compatibility with Fireblocks made it easy for LimeWire to simply connect and create the LMWR Tokens while maintaining full ownership.

Efficient Lifecycle Management of the LimeWire token

With Bitbond Token Tool, LimeWire efficiently created and managed their utility toke dubbed, LMWR. It offered advanced features allowing LimeWire to provide various benefits and governance rights to LMWR token holders, empowering their community and enhancing the overall user experience.
