The announcements were made today by Ben Kopec, OnChain Music’s CEO and Founder.

In just the past eight months, blockchain music platforms have created entirely new royalty streams for music artists, but, according to OnChain Music executives, many musicians don’t understand the mechanics of digital assets. Therefore, large numbers of musicians are not collecting as many of these royalties as could be made available to them. Pursuing and keeping track of multiple blockchain music aggregators and royalty collections can present a lot of challenges. Technical hurdles can create frustrations for the user, and tasks such as metadata management and digital asset (including cryptocurrency) management can be very time-consuming and overwhelming.
OnChain Music was established to provide products and services to help bridge the gap between musicians and their blockchain royalties. By facing these obstacles head-on, the company has the expertise to remove the burden musicians often face when dealing with technological barriers, management of content distribution and digital assets, and collection and disbursement of royalties. OnChain Music oversees and manages these aspects so artists and musicians can continue to focus on their creative passions – making music itself.
Regarding the launch of his new company, Mr. Kopec said, “At our core, we believe in helping musicians generate new streams of revenue and maximizing royalties for our artists, bands, composers, singer-songwriters, DJs, and musicians of all types. We operate with the idea that we shouldn’t make any money unless our artists are making money. Therefore, our business is designed around a revenue sharing model. After collecting money from our clients, such as music aggregators, we retain a small fee and then remit the rest to the musicians. Our goal is complete transparency - we share all available metrics with our musicians. When possible, we connect to blockchains and pull in relevant data so that our musicians can see the same information we see.”
About THE IDEATION BEHIND ONCHAIN MUSIC
OnChain Music was conceived to expose musicians and artists to the reality of earning digital assets utilizing blockchain technology and connecting directly to their fans, providing the foundation for a decentralized internet that will benefit musicians and their fans. This decentralization will empower artists, bring them closer to their followers, and allow them to earn multiple revenue streams. Musicians will earn a higher royalty rate, as compared to traditional DSPs, through the sale of NFTs and distribution of music to blockchain platforms.
OnChain Music stands at the forefront of the music industry’s future and wants musicians around the world to know that if they are ready to create their own personal ecosystems in which they, their fans and their income streams can be interwoven, then those artists should investigate all that OnChain Music has to offer them.
About THE NEW ONCHAIN MUSIC TOKEN
The new OnChain Music token is a hybrid cryptocurrency combining characteristics of being a utility, governance, and revenue share token. People who either hold or stake will have access to OnChain Music’s Revenue Share Program, voting, snapshots, airdrops, NFTs, and more. Artists signed to OnChain’s roster also have the potential of increased royalty payouts. OnChain is not doing an ICO or pre-sale. The $MUSIC token does not inherently have any value and one should do their own research before making an investment.
The OnChain Music token is now officially live and trading on UniSwap and PancakeSwap – the ticker is MUSIC.
Steps to buy the $MUSIC token on Uniswap:
- Buy Ethereum (ETH) on an exchange, like Coinbase, or Voyager Digital.
- Transfer the ETH to a browser wallet, for example, MetaMask.
- Go to https://uniswap.org, and connect to MetaMask.
- Go to the token page at www.OnChainMusic.com, and click “Uniswap.” This will direct one to the correct token pair. Then one will be able to sell his/her Ethereum for $MUSIC.
