When are we going to see some website improvements ??

OK guys so i’ve been a member for over 4 months now and initially I thought Musicoins was a great idea but as time goes on i’m starting to have serious doubts ?? There has been no visible improvements to the main website since I have been a member and that worries me. I have seen plenty of stuff going on with the crypto side of things and also this recent change to the forum but why not anything to the main site ?? I have posted about this before in the forum and all I hear back from other members ( never admin or tech support ) is that we are still in Beta mode and be patient things will happen … Well nothing has happened , no improvements to the way it looks , no added features , the player is still unreliable and also it doesn’t embed into facebook which means its kind of pointless sharing any links. When will we get an announcement about if and when the website will move from Beta into a fully operational site ? At the moment it’s only working as musicians supporting musicians and that is just unsustainable. Also it’s kind of strange that no major labels or artists have joined yet ? If the concept and idea is so great then why wouldn’t they get on board ? So many questions about the website go unanswered in the forum and thats a worrying thing really.

So I guess i’m looking for some answers from somebody as to the future plans of musicoins and when will they start to concentrate on the main thing , the website , and not peripheral hardware and pushing the “coin”. The whole thing needs to go hand in hand and the website is the first point of call for musicians and listeners and that’s what’s lacking the most at the min … listeners …

Hey @DaveyHub! I agree with you that the team hasn’t communicated its efforts properly to the public. I’ll answer your queries one by one:

  1. When will we get an announcement about if and when the website will move from Beta into a fully operational site ?

The new site will be released in 2 weeks

  1. Also it’s kind of strange that no major labels or artists have joined yet ? If the concept and idea is so great then why wouldn’t they get on board ?

As is the case with good products, they take time to catch on. We are a non profit and we haven’t devoted much time to marketing the product since we felt it would be better to build a stable product and then go out to the world. Rest assured, once the site is out of beta, the marketing team will be firing on full cylinders.

  1. So many questions about the website go unanswered in the forum and thats a worrying thing really

Some of the questions in the forum are
a. already been answered (e.g. why haven’t I been verified)
b. too repetitive
c. speculative

The team tries its best to address issues that arise from time to time. Being a dev, I don’t visit the forum often because most of my time is spent on the wallet and planning for future updates (such as the forum update now). If you have any problems, you can always write to us at team@musicoin.org

  1. So I guess i’m looking for some answers from somebody as to the future plans of musicoins and when will they start to concentrate on the main thing , the website , and not peripheral hardware and pushing the “coin”

We’ve had a hardfork to support MyEtherWallet and MyCrypto (on whose integration we’re working with the teams), had a brand new Desktop Wallet and now the forum update, with the site following soon after. We’ll also be getting an iOS app in q3-q4, which is being worked on by a their party, along with the speakers. Having a full fledged desktop wallet is critical at the same level as the website itself, so I don’t agree that it amounts to “pushing the coin”.

  1. The whole thing needs to go hand in hand and the website is the first point of call for musicians and listeners and that’s what’s lacking the most at the min … listeners …

To this point, I agree. But as I pointed out in a previous answer, the new site should take the site out of beta, which would make it way more intuitive for listeners and musicians alike

Thanks for bringing up these questions, its always good to hear from the community what your opinion is. I do apologise on behalf of the team for not being so well versed in updating you all with the latest info, but we’ll be doing a bi-monthly dev update from May (when the new site will launch), so that should solve the problem of no communication. Hopefully this answers any concerns you may have.

@vg what about Android app?

Well thank you @vg for answering the questions I asked. I’m looking forward to seeing the new site and hopefully you guys have looked through the forum so you can implement some of the great ideas that are put forward like playlists, better member notifications , a player that will embed and play properly … etc etc. You have a great opportunity here to capitalise on a lot of unhappy Soundcloud members who are looking for somewhere to switch their music too and I have been holding back in recommending Musicoins as I felt it was good but not a great place to switch too at this moment in time. I will fully get behind Musicoins once I can see a better website and you guys should definitely take more notice of what’s said in the forums.

2 weeks?? 22 days have passed since your promise.

@vg two weeks are far behind us … sadly it’s constantly promising something and postponing with musicoin.

Hi everybody. Yes I also would like to see all the improvements to let Musicoin became a seriosly alternative to main streaming platform. But reality is different, reality is like music, when you are writing a new song that potentially are going to change the world. It need faith and patience.
It needs time, it needs love.
For crypto is the same, we are a community of romantic musicians, we want to do our best. We are not looking for short improvement, but for long and more sure way. So feel free to wait, writing news wonderfull song. This is the best way to improve Musicoin. Write the best song ever!

There is no need to determine the date if you are unable to fill them… if something changed in the middle time that is ok. I just want to know when to expect wp 3.0 and alpha site. That’s all.

Hello @данило-јоковић, and nice to Musicoin you! 🙂 I see your point, but the best way to stay tuned to the whole process (knowing when developping issues arise, and taking part in the innovations implementation) is… coding, learning some language (C++, Python, Solidity…) and working along with the current dev team 🙂

Because of a lack of computer languages knowledge, I haven’t done it myself till now (although I’m planning to begin diving into that universe, hehe), and for the same reason I don’t envision my relation towards Musicoin as being the one of a “stockholder” towards any NASDAQ company, waiting for results, complaining, but not doing much else for the whole process to strengthen…

I see the very existence of Musicoin as being a daily miracle, the kind of experience which makes life worth living, even more when we’re closely associated to its growth and success. Thus I can easily wait one more year for a new version of the website to be launched 🙂

@ijatz-guatemala ok man… that’s was just your opinion… I’m waiting from Novembar to see results, im not musician im investor and i want to see some results. If some of the dev promise something i just want to keep that promise, or to explain why something is being postponed. That would be fine and professional. You have to understand that the for success of this project is a necessary satisfied investor and not just a musician.

@данило-јоковић @ijatz-guatemala @niuQuin @vg @DaveyHub This is a very important tread. I agree with you all. We are on the same boat. Musicians, investors, miners, developpers, all for the same goal. The feeling can be differents. Investors see the Musicoin price go down, the musicians doesn’t see improvement on the platform, but they are trying to increase artistic value, the developper are working hard.

I think we should try all to see Musicoin for a longterm project. Like a boat to discover a new world. It better to take al your time and have a big strong boat, fix all the issue before jump in the deep Music Ocean with the big wave (and mp3). Because nobody can stop the blockchain

we have been here 4 months actually i dont mind the website i have seen improvements we a few nonmusicain liseners listening to our music its performing at about 70% musicion is a long term goal on a computer fans can listen to all your songs in time hopfully they will be able to listen via a mobile app but they can listen on a iphone or a samsung with a 705 chance so in its beginning stages that is not bad

From experience on the Volareo side I can say that we are seeing an increase in attention for blockchain music all together as well. Musicoin is mostly spoken about postively by others for actually having a platform. While many other have non functional betas running. Community is key here and the more we support each other the more the community will thrive.

Of course … I believe in this project, that’s why I am here, but we must keep our promise to respect this trust, and build a better future together.

In general I believe it is good to ask these questions. Better to clear things up then to take problems with you.
One question I personally have for the team is on the matter of speed. As time goes, will the platform get faster or will there always be some sort of delay when requesting to play a song to validate it?

administrators

@volareo Streaming part should be and will be greatly improved, we all know that current delay can be too big ☺

Now in this situation is better to wait few days until market correction is finished…

@zeljko-stanojkovski will new site still be in Beta stage or it’ll be final product?

hi @metkraming it’s still in Beta. Waiting for the app to launch for V3. New white paper ni coming this quarter as well.

Looks like your connection to Musicoin Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
