Musicoin: What is Musicoin? Universal Basic Income (UBI)? Pay Per Play (PPP)? Ambassador Program and More

in #blockchain3 years ago (edited)


Musicoin is a decentralized platform that leverages the power of blockchain technology in empowering musicians to take full ownership of their content and finances. The Musicoin platform is built on a transparent Peer-to-Peer network powered by programmable smart contracts to enable fair remuneration for all musical content and services.

Musicoin Pay Per Play (PPP) smart contract aligns with a musician’s intuitive expectation of a payout, from every single stream of their content.

PPP is a smart contract on the Musicoin blockchain that enforces and executes licensing terms to instantly reward musicians with $MUSIC (native currency of the Musicoin platform) per playback. Payments are done in a fair and transparent fashion and can be automatically divided and distributed to all contributors, such as band members, songwriters, and producers.

No intermediaries are required to facilitate payments other than the public ledger of the Musicoin blockchain. Musicoin will leverage the power of blockchain to bring about an equitable environment that is currently lacking in the 100-year-old music industry.

Furthermore, removal of intermediaries has allowed Musicoin to transfer most of the value generated from music to the musicians. Below is a comparison table of per-stream payouts (in USD) among existing streaming platforms, including Musicoin. As you can see, Musicoin does not distinguish between signed and unsigned artists and pays its musicians at a rate that is at least ~286% higher than its closest competitor, Spotify.


UBI Economic Model

Universal Basic Income (UBI) is a recent implementation of a new economic model on the Musicoin ecosystem. A UBI pool is created to secure musicians’ income from PPP on the platform, at a fixed rate that is fair, uninfluenced by market forces and higher than that of any other competing streaming platforms. The rewards from mining are split into the following, 79.6% of each block rewards go to miners, 15.9% goes to the pool, and 4.5% goes to project development.

By following the UBI model, this will boost the influx of content from musicians as well as make streaming music free for listeners, thereby ensuring deeper penetration of Musicoin into the streaming market. Unlike other streaming platforms, users on the Musicoin platform will be able to stream songs for free and without ads. Free and unlimited music streaming without ads is the critical feature that will distinguish Musicoin from centralized streaming platforms, allowing us to expand radically and capture a bigger share of the streaming market.
