The Podcast Host has launched an NFT collection called The Curious Companion, a short story with 6000+ possible variations, minted on the Solana blockchain for podcast fans to collect and own.
The company says the Curious Companion is an “experiment designed to encourage podcasters to explore how they can create engaging, unique content for their audience, and earn from their work.”
Over the course of the next five weeks, the Podcast Host will be releasing 20 variations per week on Solsea for 0.2 SOL each (which is equivalent to $26.84 at the time of writing), to show what can be done.
In addition, The Podcast Host has completed a transatlantic round of investment worth £500,000 with UK-based ADA Ventures and US based firm, the Calm Fund for their Podcast making webapp Alitu.
With the funding, The Podcast Host team is planning to build out two specific areas; the editing and production experience, and the monetisation of Podcasting.
CEO Colin Gray said, “Podcasting is meant to be fun! It’s a passion for so many. We want to grow that feeling in Alitu, making sure it’s a real pleasure putting your show together, and releasing your voice into the wild, but all the while giving you the flexibility and control you need to create something great.”
