It's been the year of the NFT, and Mike Shinoda was one of many artists who got really into it — releasing multiple projects in the crypto format. Now, the Linkin Park cofounder is gifting collectors with a special art piece called "Precipice." He also shared the drawing on Instagram for everyone to see.

"For all collectors of my NFT work this year, I airdropped a gift: this piece (which IG won’t let me post without cropping), is called 'Precipice,'” he captioned the post. "You can find it on my page on Objkt. For non-NFT collectors, I hope you enjoy the art."

Shinoda then shared a year-end message to his fans, writing: "I wish each of you reading this a wonderful holiday and success in whatever your next step is. I’m rooting for you. Stay safe out there."

Shinoda's latest NFT release was a mixtape called ZIGGURATS.

“I know there are a lot of fans who are curious about NFTs but haven’t tried it yet. So I designed this release to be an easy 'first NFT,'" he said in a statement about the project. "There are multiple blockchains, this release is onTezos. I chose Tezos because it’s a green blockchain, with one of the lowest carbon footprints of any popular chain. We’ve all bought an app we 'own,' like Microsoft Word, or a music plugin, or an item in a game. But those items are unlimited in number. The difference here is that the NFT is limited edition, highlighting the value of authenticity, rarity, and originality.”
