Gated tracks are tracks that require a user to own an NFT before they can unlock it. Access to your gated tracks relies on the ownership of an NFTs belonging to a collection. Anyone who owns an item from that collection will have access.
Only tracks can be gated at this time.
Collectible Gated tracks will appear on your profile and in searches, but won't appear on your follower's feeds.
With a few exceptions, you can use any Ethereum NFT, or any verified Solana NFT collection to gate access to your tracks. NFT metadata quality can vary, so not all collections will work.
Any Solana NFT collections verified under the latest Metaplex metadata standard should be compatible, but there may be exceptions. You can check if a Solana NFT is part of a verified collection by searching it's token address on the Solana Block Explorer.
