Disruptive music artist platform has announced the launch date for their global music downloading and streaming app headlined by Grammy-nominated Carolyn Malachi and DJ sensation Jinco.
"Don't quit your day job" is the first advice most artists get the moment they reveal their intentions. The industry is highly competitive, opportunities are limited, producing content is tasking and putting them out is saddled with challenges.
"Don't do it for the pay, do it for the passion" tends to be the follow up when the artist starts encountering difficulty distributing their works or having intermediaries cut into whatever meager reward they should have been reaping.
Making a living as an artist is incredibly hard when every play boils down to distribution. Self-distribution rarely provides the artist with the necessary exposure to justify the effort, while third-party distributors will take anywhere between 15 to 40% of revenue generated by content. Factoring production cost of content, marketing, and logistics, the artist is often left with nothing to take home.
With the advent of decentralization, there have been several attempts to build blockchain-based distribution platforms. However, none of them have been successful due to poorly implemented features, community engagement and development, and low content.
All that is set to change with the Alpha version launch of VOISE decentralized music platform for artists and listeners on October 18.
VOISE was successfully crowdfunded in July, selling over 825,000 tokens to develop its music streaming and distribution platform. This helped reinforce VOISE's belief that anonymous, decentralized streaming is the future of the music industry. VOISE let creators realize 100% content revenue on a simplified and streamlined platform. The platform has been designed to bridge the gap between the crypto market and mainstream consumption through the integration of both crypto and fiat payment gateway services. VOISE will unite both crypto enthusiasts and average music consumers in their common love for music.
VOISE Alpha launch offers a plethora of full-fledged features. From the homepage, users will be able to directly access music, whether choosing from popular downloads or sampling the latest uploads. They can also find new and old music by searching in thematic sections, arranged by favorite genres and artists. Their purchases will be easily accessible from a “My Collections folder”, which has been linked to their wallet section, allowing them to seamlessly deposit, withdraw and make purchases within the platform in VOISE tokens or ETH.
Musicians on the platform can upload songs and albums and either set their own prices or let the community freely download and donate instead. They will also have access to a detailed profile section for maximum community engagement. Fans will be able to follow and donate to their favorite artists through their profiles.
VOISE Alpha platform will also host Radio DAO, a community streaming service for future announcements. Top artists will be promoted on the radio channel and it will feature a unique community voting concept where users will select their favorite radio service – and share any profits obtained.
The VOISE community can look forward to even more exciting developments as work continues on the music platform of the future. The successful tokenswap in September has set VOISE on the path to future listings on major exchanges. VOISE tokens are gaining recognition, having been added to
CoinExchange, with $800,000 daily trading volume and currently trading at 800 satoshis.
VOISE has also updated its development roadmap, which will see upcoming work on attracting more collaborators for the platform, building more partnerships in the music industry, an artist verification system and search engine. In line with this, VOISE has initiated partnership effort with the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance, the world’s largest open-source blockchain alliance connecting Fortune 500 enterprises with Ethereum experts.
Recognizing South Korea as an emerging market, VOISE also has plans to reach out by creating a South Korean music community to attract investment.
