Following its initial announcement revealing its return, former file-sharing client, LimeWire, is now set to relaunch as an NFT marketplace. Referencing its place as an illegal music and movie downloading hub, LimeWire released a commercial outlining its transition.

Back in 2010, LimeWire lost a four-year copyright infringement battle against the Recording Industry Association of America and remained a nostalgic relic of the Internet’s past until now. Earlier this year, brothers Julian and Paul Zehetmayr acquired the naming rights for the service to relaunch as a “mainstream-ready, digital collectibles marketplace for art and entertainment, initially focusing on music.”

The LimeWire NFT marketplace is set to simplify things for those new to NFTs, offering easy signup and direct credit card payment via Wyre’s payment platform using USD pricing. LimeWire aims to partner with top musicians and register a million buyers by the end of the first year.

The commercial for the relaunch shows two kids running home from school to download Soulja Boy‘s “Crank Dat (Soulja Boy)” on LimeWire. Fast-forwarding to the future, the kids, now adults, rush home after work to get on LimeWire to now buy an NFT. The commercial closes with, “LimeWire is back. Your place for music NFTs.”

Catch the commercial for relaunch below and head over to LimeWire’s website to tap into the exclusive drops set to come.

In case you missed it, watch Kanye West and The Game perform “Eazy.”
