The solution, touted as the first-of-its-kind, is designed to bring together “the world of entertainment and fintech” through integrating Zytara products within the musician’s streaming and online channels.
deadmau5 fans will be able to connect with the musician’s online stores, merchandise, concerts and in-game purchases, with the branded cards accepted at more than 45 million merchants worldwide.

Millennial and Gen-Z-focused Zytara supports musical artists, actors, gamers, sports teams and other brands with the creations, sales, and marketing of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
