HOW TO SETUP A CRYPTO WALLET

4 Reasons why you’ll need a ‘Crypto Wallet’ to use OFM:

  1. Ocean Floor Music has our own crypto token that functions as currency on our platform. Our token is called $OFM. $OFM has a limited supply (capped number of tokens) and is an ERC20 token that resides on the Ethereum Blockchain
  2. $OFM tokens are the currency used to fund music projects and buy goods and services on our platform including NFT’s and a vast range of music-related services
  3. $OFM token holders also earn community governance voting rights in our DAO
  4. Our De-fi staking program also allows $OFM to be staked in liquidity mining
