The Weeknd’s “After Hours Til Dawn” tour will start on the 8th of July 2022.
Binance claims that it is the first concert to use web 3.0 technology.
Binance is major Cryptocurrency exchange. On Thursday, it announced that it had become the official sponsor for The Weeknd’s “After Hours Til Dawn” tour. According to the press release, the concert will be the first to incorporate web 3.0 technology.
The sponsorship was possible after a partnership with HXOUSE (a think-centre/community incubator for entrepreneurs). The Weeknd will release an exclusive NFT collection and other tour merchandise co-branded by HOUSE.
Binance is about the community, people and inclusion. Their focus on users was impressive, as well as their innovative edge. It was a great idea to collaborate. I’m excited for crypto fans to have access to it creatively while supporting a good cause. The Weeknd stated that crypto has so many options and that this is only the beginning.
Yi He, Binance’s co-founder, said: “We are thrilled to be an exclusive cryptocurrency partner of The Weeknd’s tour, allowing fans to interact with crypto through a new avenue. Crypto is community-centric. We believe that this partnership embodies that. The time will start on 8 July. Binance.US will be the American sponsor.
Web 3.0 Investment
