The project’s website also revealed that the sale will end on May 11 and that the LMWR token will be listed on four major exchanges starting on May 16. In order to raise funds, Limewire accepted both fiat and cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), USD Coin (USDC), Tether (USD), and Binance Coin (BNB). During the week of May 6, LMWR added support for XRP, Cardano (ADA), and Polygon (MATIC) payments.

Limewire rose to fame as a file-sharing service active in the early 2000s. However, the platform became notorious for enabling copyright infringement of music and subsequently faced legal challenges from the recording industry. Limewire was eventually forced to shut down around 2010.

Despite its past, LMWR’s revived version is now focused on serving as a platform for music artists. Creators will be able to generate blockchain-based content, which they can monetize with cryptocurrency rewards, payments, and subscriptions. Additionally, all content on the platform will be stored and traded as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), allowing creators to offer their fans unique digital items and experiences.

Limewire evolve from a controversial file-sharing service to a platform that supports the artistic community and the emerging world of NFTs. With Limewire’s diverse range of accepted payment options and the potential for unique NFT offerings from creators, it is no wonder that the platform has already surpassed its initial fundraising goal.
