What’s Bitsong?

BitSong is a new music platform built using the Ethereum blockchain and the IPFS distributed file-system; it will be dedicated to musicians and listeners, solving one of the major problems related to the world of music. Problems that a musician who wants to emerge knows very well, the current music streaming companies do as intermediaries between advertisers and producers; they point to solve this “modus operandi” with this innovative decentralized music streaming platform.

How does it work?

  • The user will get paid for the “User Attention”;
  • The producer will receive incomes in real time;
  • The advertiser will be able to optimize the campaign after assessing the report results.

On the BitSong platform you will be able to produce songs where an advertiser can attach advertisements enabling the users it access it from any device. For each advertisement listened, the artist and the listener will get up to 90% of the profits invested by the advertiser, with the chance to receive donations from fans for the artists’ next album.

Ratings

Competitors and comparisons

The space has quite different competitors with blockchain and non-blockchain related projects, we will consider those two: Musicoin and Voise.

Team

The team has music background and different artists are already collaborating with the project, in complete opposite with the other two platforms, where the team is not available (Musicoin) or is very small and with no music background (Voise).

Idea

The idea is not unique, but it is the rewarding system for the listeners, which you cannot find in the other two competitors, who just point to cut the middleman between the musicians and listeners.

MVP

No MVP for Bitsong since nothing is available on the official website, for the other two platforms there is an already beta product available but the adoption and music variety is quite scares.

Supply

The supply for Bitsong and Musicoin is around 1 Bil. Tokens each, voice has a lower one around 770 Mil.

The good thing in Bitsong is that all the unsold tokens will be burned, opening the possibility of less supply and more speculative vantages for investors.

Advantages

  • The team is experienced in the field required -> +2
  • Paying the listeners is a great feature -> +2
  • Any good or noticeable competitor around in the space, especially with such features -> +1

Disadvantages

  • The partnerships are not very notable or well followed artists -> -1

 Conclusions

Bitsong could really disrupt the music but this environment is already very crowded and the competition is massive. Decentralize the music industry is a very good idea since we know how can be difficult for artists get traction and have visibility in this highly competitive space where they’re on the mercy of the producers, who have always the last word and way too much power. The team has music background and there are already many artists collaborating with the project. In order to say if this project will have success we have to see its adoption, by users and especially by artists, only then we can say something more concrete. The user rewards for their “attention” could be the feature, which can increase the chances of adoption ad consequent success.
