Celebrity DJ Steve Aoki claims NFTs outperform music royalties in revenue


Music royalties, according to Steve Aoki, one of the world’s most famous club DJs, aren’t as lucrative as NFTs.

Last week, Aoki stated he had made more from his NFT sales in one year than he had from six albums in a decade.

“I’ve been doing music for ten years…six albums, and if you add together all those advances, I made more money in one drop last year in NFTs,” Aoki told Decrypt.

Last year, Aoki sold his “hairy” NFT for $888,888.88. (He did say that live DJ work accounts for 95% of his music revenue.)
