Found out why Musicoin is lacking on Regular listeners.

  • Edit: It turns out it's the FB embedded player that doesn't work, see my recent posts at the bottom for details and screenshots.

    Had a conversation with someone on Facebook a few minutes ago, I didn't realize people had to sign up to listen to tracks, told her it was free but she didn't wanna sign up with anything, just listen.

    So that's pretty much a problem in itself, but it's always kind of been like that, people don't want any kind of extra hassle, that's one of the reasons Soundcloud is the go to platform for artists and fans, no sign up you can just listen and artists aren't gonna and really can't get into a debate with every fan to get them to sign up to a site just to listen.

    So maybe this post would be better placed in the ideas section but I think it's a good idea to let fans sign up in order to follow/tip/create playlists/communicate with the artist but to just listen they shouldn't have to sign up at all.


  • Also, really need a mobile app

  • Let them work on the desktop version of Musicoin before releasing an App. But I agree with @Hydro-Hellsing, only people who wants to get musicoins will need to sign up (as soon as they release more features: like tickets concerts, songs buying and more.

  • You are entirely right,! I think you pointed out the problem in its entirety....Soundcloud is the go to platform for artists...herein lies the problem! Artists through no fault of their own, have cultivated the listener to becoming a do nothing, pay nothing for the music they listen to. Every artist should use this type of platform carefully and I would urge that we all move completely away from that we actually have the choice.

  • Just a friendly reminder the platform is on Beta stage, they probably don't want massive people come and listen to music without being sure they can handle traffic.

  • True enough...and I see the issues that would create. I would hope for gradual exodus to sites like musicoin. Even in the beta format, I am really enjoying my experience on musicoin and have found a lot of very amazing artists there already. In time it will be my commitment to drive my fans here and there, in the new online music presence. It has a way to go yet, but I fully believe should be the only place, we as artists, make our exclusive presence available.

  • I listen to musicoin tracks daily without being logged in. 🤔

  • You dont have to sign up though? I have tweeted and posted my musicoin links and everyone as able to listen without logging in or signing up

  • I concur. I posted on FB and my fans were able to listen without signing up.

  • That's strange, I wonder why she wasn't able to listen than, maybe it was a site error at the time, or an error in the player, could also have been just her PC/Device.

  • Just tested it all, it's the FB player that doesn't work, same thing applies though, people being scared to click links they're not familiar with, just wanna listen through the embedded player, and if they see the embedded player doesn't work they think it's a bad link/site. Took some screenshots of me and another artists player on here, the player starts than goes inactive.
