Re: SongCoin Idea

I don't disagree about getting the money, but the money *is* there-- the streaming services may not be profitable but they sure do have revenue. Total music industry revenue in 2016 is like $7B. https://www.recode.net/2018/2/28/17064460/spotify-ipo-charts-music-streaming-daniel-ek Kinda feels like t...

Re: SongCoin Idea

Getting paid would be great. Maybe that's it. Essentially a mechanism for creating, selling, and accounting for shares in a song. When you create the song, you own all the shares, and then you sell them off and put it all into the ledger system And anything that's done with the song that makes money...

Re: SongCoin Idea

Yeah I don't really care about blockchain necessarily-- I think the rush to apply it to everything is foolish. But as a thought experiment about how to value and support songwriting, or even as an art experiment about how to enforce manufactured scarcity in a digital good, it's interesting to think ...

Re: SongCoin Idea

I have no idea how to get it started. More like spitballing the concept. Oooh or what about if you use blockchain to say that you can only listen to a certain song a certain number of times. Make listening to “A Day In the Life” a finite resource. I know that would freak people out. But music is too...

SongCoin Idea

I was listening to a podcast this morning, because I am one of those people. Anyway, it was about money and had a segment about cryptocurrencies. Specifically there's an artist who minted a currency and then backed it up with his art... so the whole thing is basically an art piece. https://www.forbe...

Re: Automatic songs, automatic reviews (Yes, You're A Robot reviews)

The John Benjamin Band - excellent synthing, the bass is deliciously chunky. My only real criticism is that I like this rather than loving it, which is odd as this is so far up my street that I feel like I should love it. I think I prefer the verse to the chorus, the effected vocals don't totally w...
