Sound.xyz was founded to solve two major problems with the music industry: (1) the vast majority of songs go entirely unheard and 90% of streams go to the top 1% of artists and (2) artists earn a minuscule amount from each stream ($0.003 per stream), resulting in even the most talented artists struggling to making a living wage. We believe music is more valuable than the current paradigm suggests.
Sound.xyz is powering the next generation of artists and their communities.
- Launch a listening party: Sound gives artists the chance to debut new music as a set of NFTs. Each edition of the NFT is numbered uniquely, so listeners can showcase their early support. Putting out a new track should be an event, not an afterthought.
- Own the moment: Each Sound NFT is more than just the song. Owning a song’s NFT grants the backer the ability to make a public comment on the song — let the world know what you think! Sell your NFT, and your comment disappears, getting replaced by the new owner. Show off the Sound NFTs you’ve collected and prove you were a fan from way back in the day.
- Create a culture: In addition to owning the song and etching your name in its history, Sound NFTs are your access pass to the Sound community on Discord where artists and listeners interact with each other through weekly hangouts, collaborative projects, and more. Artists can also choose to include additional benefits for their backers, ranging from exclusive listens of unreleased songs to concert tickets.
