The Musicians Quick Start Guide Compiled Series & More


Tomorrow i'm running my first Free community workshop for Musicians in Malaysia with the help of a great man and musician himself @bitrocker2020 from #Teammalaysia so i thought of compiling all my previous guides and how to's for the ease of sharing during the workshop to assist our fellow musicians in their own journey on the Blockchain (Further details below)

If these guides are of any help for you or you would like me to cover any specific topics that i have not mentioned, please do let me know and leave me a comment below.

Hoping this guide will help you as a musician on your journey on the Blockchain!


The Blockchain technology has enabled so many new platforms and solutions for musicians like myself to get rid of the middle man (Monopolized Music Industry) like record labels, distributors, commercial music media platforms like the radio and TV that keeps repeating the same $%^ music over and over and not giving space or room for independent artists to get exposed and spread their music.

Blockchain Technology to Help Struggling Musicians?

musician struggle.jpg

The fact that the technology can eliminate the corruption and the need for the current monopolized music outlets and platforms and enabling the artist to establish a direct relationship between the music creators and consumers is simply Revolutionary!

Artists and Composers no longer need to go through the current purchasing platforms which usually takes half the cut of the revenue minimum! Musicians can now directly be compensated whenever their music gets played directly with transparency and speed.

This is a great blessing for musicians that don't have the financial backings of a big record labels behind their back and especially and new musicians who are starting up with their musical careers.

I'm still fairly new on the blockchain, I'm no expert but so far in my blockchain journey i have learned about and ran into several platforms and solutions for musicians that i can assist would like to share with you.

I explore new stuff daily, i'm listing down here the one's I personally tried and used so far, please if you aware or use something i did not mention feel free to share along!
