In 2016, growth in streaming revenue achieved a staggering 60.4%, now making up 50% of the total recorded music revenue worldwide. Whilst the likes of iTunes and Spotify explode in streaming volumes, this success often surpasses the actual artist, profiting cliques of powerbrokers through clandestine backroom deals. As an evergrowing share of artist’s income derives from touring and events, intermediaries have caught up and plagued the simple process of ticketing into an extortion scheme victimizing artists and fans. Soundeon presents a step-by-step solution to not only invigorate the music business with fairness, transparency, trust and independence but unleash the value potential of merging recorded music and ticketing into a transcending fan-centric experience.
This is the world’s first vertically integrated blockchain solution that transcends digital multimedia distribution and live event ticketing. Based on the proprietary Ethereum-based protocol, Soundeon utilizes its registered Creative Smart Contract to create a trustless and transparent music rights management and ticketing environment that addresses the long-standing problems plaguing performing artists and fans alike.
