Joe Conyers III is leaving his position as Chief Strategy Officer at Downtown to lead Crypto.com’s new NFT platform

Music-related NFTs have gone mainstream in the past few weeks, piquing the interest of superstar artists from Kings of Leon to Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Grimes and Steve Aoki.

MBW found on Friday that digital asset sales exceeded $ 25 million in the past month alone – and today brings news of a prominent music industry executive who has made the move to a full-time position in the field.

Joe Conyers III, Chief Strategy Officer of Downtown Music Holdings, has left the company to join Crypto.com, headquartered in Hong Kong, as EVP, Global Head of NFTs.

While downtown, Conyers co-founded Songtrust, a global music royalty collection company and publishing offices headquartered in the United States.

The company enables over 350,000 songwriters, producers, and other rights holders to collect royalties on over 3 million copyrights worldwide.

Songtrust also provides royalty publishing solutions for corporate clients including CD Baby, Distrokid, Downtown Music Publishing, The Orchard, Sub Pop Publishing, and Trap Nation.

Conyers co-founded the art media company ArtObserved.com over 15 years ago.

In this new role, Conyers will oversee the development of Crypto.com’s new NFT platform, which, according to the press release, “will feature the world’s best artists, athletes and sports leagues”.

Crypto.com currently serves over 10 million customers and employs 900 people.

Co-founder Kris Marszalek explains that the platform is aiming for 100m over the next two years and that “the NFT market will undoubtedly be a major growth driver”.

“I look forward to offering fans and collectors a new way to connect with creators of all kinds, while giving everyone the opportunity to earn their fair share.”
