Show Notes

Welcome to SustainaDAO Non-fungible Talk, a show about everything Web3 from the team of SustainaDAO, which includes me, your host, Lin Ning. 

Our guest for this episode is Charles Cheng - co-founder and CFO of Euterpe (BCE.IO) , the world’s first IP-powered NFT as a Service with SocialFi. Charles is an attorney and was a former Partner at Amino Capital, the Advising Expert at Alumni Ventures Group, and was elected as one of Forbes China's 60 Outstanding Chinese In North America. He was trained at Stanford Law School in Corporate Governance and Practice.

Euterpe is the world’s first IP-powered NFT as a service platform. Euterpe cultivates a healthy ecosystem in which all users, including artists, fans, and investors, are motivated to mutually benefit as a community. They are building a professional B2C marketplace of high-quality IP NFT, immune from infringements and scams. Euterpe will also feature an inherent SocialFi ecosystem, turning passive fans into proactive stakeholders who strive to earn mining rewards through their contributions to the community. IP is everything in Metaverse. Euterpe is currently handling musical IP and is posited to grow into the everything store in Metaverse for the next decade.

In today’s episode, you’ll hear about how Euterpe will provide a brand new platform for musicians and songwriters to publish and protect their intellectual property, how fans can invest in those artists and profit from their investment with royalties, and how the Euterpe model may be expanded for use with other creative product such as video games, books, concerts, trademarks, and patents.
