MusicY is a decentralized crypto music ecosystem governed by a DAO community by combining three elements: Music NFT Marketplace, Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and Social Finance (SocialFi). MusicY empowers the traditional music industry, allowing music artists, music lovers and music industry practitioners to fully enjoy the huge benefits brought by the crypto music economy.

Initially NFTs were stationary, but we have seen the evolution of NFTs from still pictures to looping images (gifs) and music NFTs. Music NFTs are proof of ownership of unique audio, musical compositions that can be bought or sold. Similar to cryptocurrency, music NFTs are stored in a distributed ledger, making them difficult to counterfeit, and documenting the process of minting, and trading. Music NFT gives music creators control over their own works. With digital provenance, scarcity and collectability, NFTs of scarce quantities is highly sought-after. With the mega trend of NFT, although the music NFT market is just emerging, the music market is large, especially in the community where musicians and fans converge, its potentiality is worth waiting for.
MusicY allows music creators to mint music NFTs in minutes, record them through a ‘smart contract’ and transfer ownership in seconds. This breaks down the inequity in royalties and profit sharing between music platforms in the traditional music industry. Music creators can easily profit from the secondary market and earn a predetermined share from the resale of future music NFT productions. At the same time, MusicY encourages more investors to support music talents and monetize their capacity. Not only limited to music NFT, but also concert tickets, limited edition experiences, digital content and digital goods can be minted into NFTs. The secure and decentralised data on the chain allows NFT holders to truly own their rights and easily realise the liquidity of intellectual property.
On MusicY, each NFT is a “mining machine”. The NFTs you hold can be staked to the MusicY NFT liquidity mining pool before being sold. The hash power of each NFT is determined by their trading amount and their number of addresses, which in turn will earn MY (MusicY Token) for the holder of the NFT. MusicY has a professional and unique aesthetic ability for music, and will give a higher hash power to potential musicians and their quality works ( not just on the basis of vulgar evaluation criteria such as musician’s fame), and will continue to discover more and more We will continue to discover more artists with great potentialities and assist them to express themselves.
The MusicY NFT platform will also offer projects such as ‘Musician Crowdfunding’ to support the creation of new musicians. Music creators can quickly and efficiently initiate music NFT crowdfunding, with fans and other eco-participants providing the corresponding USDC or ETH to support their music creation. Once it is completed, the MusicY system automatically minted the corresponding NFT work and put it on sale. 50% of the proceeds from the first sale are automatically paid by the smart contract to all participants of this crowdfunding project. For subsequent sales, 50% of the royalty income from the NFT work will also be paid to all participants on a proportionate basis. Mutual benefits for music creators, fans and eco-participants.
MusicY brings all music services together on one platform, which is innovative and efficient, eliminating many intermediaries and reducing the time and economic costs associated with intermediary agencies, making the contributors of music creation the main beneficiaries, while music lovers, music industry practitioners and the entire music industry will all benefit together. With the support of blockchain technology, the MusicY Music NFT trading platform will drive the whole music industry into the “crypto era”.
