The Musicblocks collection is vast and varied, from a simple guitar riff to a vocal sample or even a complete song created by a Melos member. The DNA Tree will represent the creative chain that ties Musicblocks together and in turn also represent the possible profit flows to each NFT contributor along the chain.As an example of how the NFT creation process works and how stage of the NFT chain is rewarded for their efforts and contribution:
1、Pianist Aditi mints a piano tune as G0 NFT
2、Bob sees the NFT and likes the tune, and adds his guitar riff to it and mints piano+guitar G1 NFT
3、Camilia comes across the G1 piano/guitar NFT and adds his vocal chorus to it to mint piano/guitar/vocal G2 NFT

1、NFTs as an interactive collectible vs just a static item to buy/sell. Users can add/create value to an individual NFT and value chain, like musicians adding or remixing a tune or song.
2、New relationships between fans, musicians, and producers as everyone now has access to a vast pool of musical elements to collect, be inspired by and build upon.
3、A new transparent and democratic create-to-earn ecosystem for music. Both originators and collaborators are rewarded every step of the way and the entire process is clearly documented on the Flow blockchain and Web 3.0.
