It’s no secret that the entertainment industry experienced a wave of piracy in the early 2000s and throughout the 2010s before the streaming era kicked in. While peer-to-peer file sharing wasn’t exactly legal, it brings about great memories for the millennial generation. LimeWire was often the primary source of entertainment for kids surfing the internet in its early days.
LimeWire to Hold Token Public Sale Next Month
The news of LimeWire’s revival emerged on March 9th, 2022. The founding brothers Julian and Paul Zehetmayr declared that the service would transition into an artist-powering NFT marketplace, where the upcoming artists can regain control of their music distribution and royalties, which are typically highly centralized in today’s music industry.

While the countdown shows 19 days till the main event, the prize pool of the OG LimeWire retro game is set at 100,000 tokens, which will be dished out around two weeks after the initial $LMWR public sale.
