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.
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 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.
