Thanks for the replies guys! I've figured out since I posted this that the best way is to make an account with your band email to be the account that uploads songs and then have each of the band members make their own listener accounts so they have a wallet on the site. When setting up the smart contract just delete your band account address and add in all of your band members wallets instead. Works like a charm!
@yosi-ben-zvi Miners mine the musicoin and keep most of it with a small portion getting put into a "UBI" pool that is used to pay the musicians. Everytime a listener listens to a musicians song, musicoin comes from this UBI pool to pay the musician. Listeners can also buy musicoin from exchanges to tip musicians. But otherwise it's a free experience for the listeners. Hope that helped!
I was wondering if the dev team caught this when they were reviewing the latest white paper. When discussing the payout rate to musicians based on the value of MUSIC they printed two graphs that contradict each other. The first graph shows a range of $0.02 to $0.20 per stream depending on what the price is. The second graph only shows a range of $0.02 to $0.10 per stream. Which scenario is correct?
I'm not sure of this idea. Eventually I'd assume the majority of people using this platform will be listeners just from the fact there are more non-musicians than musicians in the world. The listeners are the ones who drive this economy. Without them the artists make no money. I feel like when you see a song that is highly upvoted it should be one that listeners like and not more influenced by musicians votes. Sometimes the most technically appreciated songs by musicians aren't always the best songs for the masses.
I recently shared a link to Facebook of our song on musicoin. I noticed that when I click through the post it will bring me to the song but then it does not seem to play. The vinyl starts spinning but the player never loads and the song doesn't play. Is this a known issue and is there a push to make listening to songs more compatible with mobile browsers? I feel like this is very important as the majority of people use social media through their phones
