Musicoin Beginner’s Tutorial by Ambassador DJ Lethal Skillz

This tutorial was guest authored by Dj Lethal Skillz, global music artist and ambassador for Musicoin. You can find more of his community work concerning the cryptocurrency on his Steemit page, @djlethalskillz.

THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

The music world has always been challenging for musicians to be fairly paid for their content creation in the pool of a 15 billion dollar industry.

We have an entire population of ‘Middle Men’ such as Record Labels, Music Distributors, Online Music Sale platforms and Publishers who receive the biggest shares of artist royalties and to be honest, it’s those big labels who control the types of music and artists that get the exposure and become popular.

THE BLOCKCHAIN

One of the great things about the blockchain technology is that because it is a decentralized system that exists between all the permitted parties, there is no need to pay the ‘Middlemen’. At the same time, it saves us plenty of resources and avoids the conflict that we musicians face in the current traditional systems used. But now, all of this is changing quickly as the Blockchain is proving to be faster, cheaper, and more secur, which is why Banks and Governments among other institutions and industries are being attracted to the Blockchain.


MUSICOIN

Musicoin is a blockchain-powered platform that connects music listeners and fans to free music streaming. Musicoin is also a crypto currency that is instantly paid to artists on the Musicoin platform every time one of their musical contributions are played.
