Making a Scene The #1 Resource for the Indie Artist and the Fans that Love them
Royal.io Changing Streaming Pennies to Dollars
Royal.io Changing Streaming Pennies to Dollars
This is just a t has become clear that the future of the music industry is heading towards a decentralized financial system that has risen as a result of one of the most revolutionary developments in digital technology, The Block Chain! The Block chain is what is going to give artists control over their music and the revenue that it generates. It is the block chain that has given rise to smart contracts and Non Fungible Tokens (NFT) that allow content creators to sell digital collectables or even real world items. It is the Block Chain that will be fueling the most innovative and disruptive platforms and applications that content creators have ever seen!

Last week we took a look at Audius (See Audius – Blockchain Streaming – Spotify Killer?) a block chain based streaming platform that promises to pay artists up to 90% of all generated revenue as well as being fully transparent as to how those funds are distributed. This week we are taking a look at Royal.io an NFT based platform that allows fans to invest in artist’s songs and reap a portion of the royalties from them!simple text you should change

Audius - Blockchain Streaming will Kill Spotify?!
Audius - Blockchain Streaming will Kill Spotify?!
There is a revolution on the horizon in the music industry and it revolves around decentralized Finance (DeFi) and BlockChain Technology. This trend began with the Etherium blockchain which brought us the NFT (Non Fungable Token), Smart Contracts, etc (See “Indie Artists Guide to NFT’s”). Now, the blockchain is evolving as more uses are being discovered that will redefine the music industry and how the billions in revenue is distributed.

Recent statistics indicated that because of the bloated disparity in how monies are distributed in the music industry, only 12% of the generated revenue is left to the artist who creates and records the music. If you use the sports industry as a comparison, Athletes get approx. 50% of the generated revenue from their industry. In addition most artists, especially indie artists, have little to no control over how their music is distributed and little to no transparency as to who is streaming their music or even how the funds are distributed on platforms like Spotify. Obviously if any industry is ripe for a revolution it is the music industry.
