Bringing Music To The Blockchain

BlockTunes is a platform built by independent musicians for independent musicians. Our mission is to take back control of the music industry and to treat music like the rare art that it is!

Blockchain allows artists to receive compensation for their work many times over in ways that traditional industry cannot offer such as NFTs, DAOs, and more!

Fans can enjoy and purchase fresh music, collect and resell rare music NFTs, purchase royalty free licensing rights, and invest in our DAO and be a part and help fund of the future of the music industry!

The BlockTunes store is where artists will have their own music and merchandise store. For merchandise, we provide a print on demand service built and managed by our partners at the Hivelist Store. All the artist has to do is fill out the POD submission form, upload your Hi-Res image to the form, and our partners do the rest.

When artists release music using our BlockTunes Release Submission Service, their music gets loaded for standard download and streaming, as well as they get a print on demand t-shirt and hoodie with the album cover added to their store!

Artists will have the ability to create external products in their store which is what we use for NFTs that the artists may have minted on other markets and blockchains, for example: Opensea.io for ETH and Polygon, AtomicHub.io on WAX, or Hive based markets like NFTShowroom.com, NFTTunez.io, and Hivelist NFTs, etc. Artists will be able to link their fans directly to those external products from their BlockTunes artist store.

NFTs, or Non Fungible Tokens, give you the ability to treat your music like fine art. Artists can create rare tokenized versions of their works and sell them as collectible pieces of art. NFTs are a digital collectibles or certificate of authenticity. They can be sold with private rights, which only allows the buyer to resell it in our marketplace, or royalty free rights which allows the owner to use the work in videos, commercials, etc. The artist minting the NFT and BlockTunes will both receive a 10% commission on any resells from the OpenTunes Marketplaces.

Our OpenTunes RARE collection is now up and running. This collection is for those rare one of a kind pieces that you want to treat as a piece of fine art.

Our OpenTunes EDITIONS collection will be available in Quarter 3, 2022! This collection will allow artists to mint several editions, or copies, of the same song, for example: 1 of 25 editions, or 1 of 100 editions, whatever you choose.

BlockTunes artists can use the Feed to post any mixes from places like Mixcloud, Soundcloud, or even videos from YouTube and more. Fans will be able to interact through comments, creating an engaging experience for all and giving the artist a way to receive feedback!

Our Feed is also connected to the Hive blockchain. Artists will be able to add their Hive account in their user profile so that when they post to our site, their post will be solidified forever on the blockchain and has the ability to earn crypto rewards! Anyone interested in getting a Hive account can do so through our partner, Hivelist.

BlockTunes offers different artist and label services such as mixing and mastering, branded website and blockchain services, public relation services and more. Our services are either offered by our in house team or through our partner service providers.

Verified artists and labels will be able to access these services via the Artist Central page that will show in your ‘My Account’ dropdown.

BlockTunes Release Submission service just covers the BlockTunes site exclusively but gets you allot of value including merchandise, royalty free NFT bundles, PR review, and more!

Our BlockTunes PLUS package includes everything from the standard release as well as distribution other blockchain based stores and streaming services such as the Hivelist NFT marketplace, Audius, Emanate, and more as they are developed in this growing space! The PLUS package is everything you will need to distribute your music to not only the blockchain marketplaces, but to the mainstream as well! We will act as the publisher with the distribution company and get your music out to Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, TikTok, and more!

All an artist will have to do is select what package they would like, submit their work with the information needed, and we do the rest! Once registered as an artist, you will access this through the Artist Central page!

If you know artists or bands and refer them to us and they use our submission services, you will get and NFT representing each artist you refer! Hold that NFT in your wallet and you will receive 5% of the monthly DAO dividends as a payment for artist referral!

So it pays to go out and find good independent artists who want to get their feet wet in the crypto game!

The Metaverse is the next big wave in technology meets society. In these crazy times with mandates and travel restrictions, it can make it extremely difficult for people to attend events. That is where the Metaverse is going to come into play. It’s already started with platforms like Altspace VR and blockchain based platforms like Decentraland and Sandbox. The amount of events in the Metaverse are growing so we plan to jump onboard and host live Metaverse concerts and events for our artists to play live for fans all over the world!

We are hoping to have our first metaverse event in Quarter 3, 2022

For Metaverse events we are now partnered with

Blocktunes DAO is made up of DEFI backed DAO smart contracts built on Binance Smart Chain (BSC) using the XDAO platform. The DAO has a governance token, BTD, which is held by the team that acts as a multi signature account ensuring the funds are safe. Then there is an investment LP token, bTUNES. Investors can track the performance of the DAO and voting members can take action on the DAO Dashboard.

Our fund earns income in a variety of ways:

Investment in bTUNES tokens from the site or directly from the DAO Dashboard

Artist submission fees for the BlockTunes Release Submission Service

BlockTunes 10% commission from NFT sales and resells on the various NFT marketplaces

BlockTunes 10% commission from music and 50% commission merchandise sales

BlockTunes 10% commission from streams and revenue from external distribution

Automatic Market Making – otherwise know as yield farming on Pancakeswap earning CAKE tokens

Lending using the Venus.io Protocol which earns interest on the assets in collateral as well as their XVS token

bTUNES LP Investment Token

bTUNES token is our LP Investment token that will add value to the BlockTunes DAO. This will be your piece to the investment that will help build a new future for the music industry. This token does not give voting rights, but builds the value in our company which will be put to work to earn rewards to pay out to artists and investors. Holding the bTUNES token will get you a portion of our dividend payouts from the DAO as well as give future governance voting privilages.

bTUNES tokens can be purchased for BUSD directly from our DAO Dashboard. bTUNES tokens are only created when they are purchased directly from the DAO.

To sell your investment tokens, you will go to the DAO dashboard and go to the bottom where it says ‘Burn LP’. You will then select the assets in the DAO you want to receive when you burn your bTUNES tokens.

We will be mainly using the Pancakeswap Finance DEFI platform on BSC for our main yield farm as well as using the Venus protocol to build a credit reserve fund. We use this credit reserve to pay for operational and marketing expenses, or to build more value in our farms. We take a loan against the assets in the Venus protocol and then we will pay it back with 40% of the farming rewards each month. 10% will go to BlockTunes to cover expenses, and the other 50% is paid out in dividends.

Governance

BTD governance tokens are held by the development team, the advisory board, and other early investors. These tokens are the primary governance token for the DAO treasury. Future tokens will be distributed to any new advisors or company employees. We need to keep this group small so that transactions can be pushed through without the need for every token holder participating. Currently, during initial setup of the DAO, the voting quorum is set to 21%. This will be changed to a 50% quorum via a vote in early Quarter 3 when payments start to get dispersed to bTUNES holders.

bTUNES holders will be able to vote on proposals in the future. These votes will be off chain, but will dictate major moves made by the DAO. All bTUNES holders will have the ability to submit a proposal for a fee. The fee will be used to prevent spam proposals and all fees will be fed directly to the DAO.

Dividends for bTUNES and NFT Holders

COMING Q3 2022

We are currently working on a dividend structure for the DAO. The current plan is to pay out 40% of the farming rewards every month to bTUNES token holders. 5% to the holders of NFTs on our OpenTunes collection, and 5% to our A&R team NFT holders, these are the people that find awesome artists that some and sign up and use our BlockTunes release services! Our A&R team will receive an NFT for each artist that signs up and uses our service.

Dividends will be paid out in CAKE tokens as that is our primary farming token for the DAO. All of the income from sales, streaming, and submissions is all put to work in the yield farms and lending lines which passively builds value to the DAO.
