Pharrell Williams thinks Web3 will shake up the music industry, the financial system, and even the government.

In an interview with Gary Vaynerchuk during the Veecon, Williams said that he began exploring NFTs a few years ago.

The 13 times Grammy award winner said he thought he was late to discover NFTs.

“When I say I’m late, it’s because I thought about it more than I did anything about it,” the American musician explained.

Williams noted that he is exploring the potential of this tech to disintermediate traditional music labels and allow a better connection between artists and fans. 

Pharrel Williams is currently helping traditional artists transition into the digital world. 

The legendary musician believes decentralized communities and creators will be able to effect significant change in the world.
