Who We Are
The power of creatives is at an all time high, and like never before we are seeing Jersey connect and build at the most foundational levels. We Are Jersey has been representing Hip Hop and Fashion culture in media and marketing since 2014, and have had the honor of supporting a number of Jersey artists early in their development.
In a nutshell we are a full service media and publication company with a functional Photo Studio, Recording Studio, and Podcast Studio that was specifically built with creatives in mind. But on a grander scale, we also utilize our resources to provide Artist and Model Management, Booking & Marketing Services, Branding and Consultancy for artists and businesses within our network. We are both the representation and implementation of creativity and business, all under one roof.
Founded by the multi-talented entrepreneurs Bridget Papino and Daniel Banks, We Are Jersey is commited to the growth of the culture and enhancing the artistic experience as a whole. They provide their team and clients with a safe work environment and an unlimited amount of potential, while still achieving every goal together as a team while putting the power back in the hand of creatives.
What is an NFT?
A non-fungible token is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files.
Why Use NFT's?
NFTs are designed to give you something that can't be copied: ownership of the work (though the artist can still retain the copyright and reproduction rights, just like with physical artwork).
There are a lot of middlemen in the music industry.
When fans buy an album, stream a song, or purchase merchandise—not all of that money makes it to the artist. A lot of it goes to the record company or the streaming platform. The same middlemen are present even when we buy tickets for concerts. Record companies take a portion of ticket sales, and while artists make money there too–COVID-19 shut down the live concert market in 2020.
As a fundamental asset to crypto exchange, NFT transactions are direct transfers between the participants. The artist gets the money, the fan receives the content in their digital wallet.
