Winamp, the crowd-pleaser media player for Microsoft Windows, is going to sell the image of its 1997 original skin as a non-fungible token (NFT), The Verge reports.
The NFT will reportedly be put up for auction through OpenSea between May 16 and May 22. Later, Winamp will also make another sale based on 20 artworks derived from the original skin. The proceeds from the sales will go to charity initiatives such as the Belgian non-profit Music Fund.

Winamp will also select the best Winamp-based works until April 15, make of them NFTs, and donate artists 20% of the proceeds from each sale.
However, there are some legal limitations with NFTs.
Even though NFT holders will have the right to "copy, reproduce, and display" the image, they won’t own the copyright, said Winamp’s Head of Business Development Thierry Ascarez.
