I'm a longtime Soundcloud musician, but I am migrating here. I have been registered on here 4 months but I am only starting to use this site seriously now.
It's a perfect storm of factors:
- Problems with Soundcloud, such as their recent drop to 64kb/s streaming
- I've never been paid a cent for the 70,000+ streams I have earned on Soundcloud, but I've already earned $3 worth of musicoin on this platform
- Earn money without a publishing deal, without a record deal, etc, just by putting up music that people like to listen to.
That $3 I earned here? Yeah, this is a $40 million coin right now. And yet it's one of the few blockchain projects with real functional utility right now. There are ERC20 tokens which are just the promise of a future business model with multi-billion dollar market caps. Look at EOS, Golem, Augur, OmiseGo, etc. Musicoin has a real functional ecosystem already. This coin is going to the moon. That $3 I have right now is gonna be $300 or even $3,000 in the next few years.
I got my first BTC in 2011. I know what a successful blockchain project looks like. This one is even more exciting than BTC was back then.
Yes there are some features that I want, for example, playlists and reposts, and faster/more reliable uploads but I trust the developers. They already built a useable ecosystem, which is a hell of a lot more than a lot of blockchain projects are right now.
We are the new music industry. Jump on board, bring your friends, earn musicoin, we're gonna be rock stars.
