As a BlockTunes Headliner, you are not purchasing your account, you are investing in it! Your investment comes with 20 bTUNES tokens sent to your Binance Smart Chain (BSC) wallet which when held is where the DAO disbursements will be made. The money follows the token! These 20 bTUNES tokens represents your $200 investment to the DAO. Yield from the DAO is used to pay for overhead costs and the remainder is disbursed to bTUNES tokens holders on a monthly basis.
Once your account is upgraded, you will have the ability to mint NFTs in the following collections:
- OpenTunes Marketplace – This is a place to mint original work that you want to make into a rare digital collectible, or you may want to sell the royalty free rights to allow content creators and influencers the ability to use your music in their videos and presentations. There are all kind of possibilities on how to manage your NFTs.
- Creator’s Copyright – This collection is an open collection to all verified BlockTunes artists for you to copyright your work on the blockchain. This will be a copy that you will not want to sell and will hold in your wallet, unless you are selling the actual creators rights for the work, which is giving up your rights to the music. If you are doing this… you should list it for allot of money… just saying… If you use our BlockTunes submission service, we will create this NFT for you and send it directly to your BlockTunes wallet.
- Artist NFT Collection – BlockTunes Headliners not only get their own store, and the ability to mint NFTs in the OpenTunes and Creator’s Copyright collections, but they get their choice of their own BEP-721 (think one of a kind) or BEP-1155 (think multiple editions) collection! ** Only Available to Headliners **

For example: You may have minted items on other blockchain marketplaces such as Opensea on Ethereum or Polygon, AtomicHub on WAX, NFTShowroom on Hive, or even on the HiveLIST NFT marketplace, you can list them all as external/affiliate products on your store in the NFT Showcase category. It will be your own little artist retail store.
You will have a link to submit print on demand products and our partners will take your designs and put them on various products and list them on the store. You will receive 50% of the profits from each merchandise sale after all production, shipping, and taxes have been taken care of.
Your artist store is created automatically after sign up. Go to the My Accounts menu option, then Artist Central to locate your store dashboard!
Commission and Payment Information
BlockTunes has a base commission of 10% on each sale made on your music download store, and 50% on any print on demand products. The rest get’s paid out to you on the 1st and the 15th of the month. Any merchandise orders will also be calculated and everything sent in one payment. Artist payments made from the BlockTunes store will be paid out in BUSD tokens to your BlockTunes wallet address on file.
Artists will be paid out monthly dividends from the DAO for holding their bTUNES tokens. Dividends are currently paid out in the CAKE token, which is the token our DAO earns on a passive basis to pay artists and investors.

This gives newcomers a way to get into the game without having to install Metamask. The internal wallet is only for BSC and can be used to purchase items on the store using the Pay with BSC feature! This wallet also shows users any NFTs they have in their wallet not just from BlockTunes but from any BSC NFT market! For security, our wallet is for viewing only as well as internal store payments. We use the selected address as your payment address for bTUNES tokens, NFTs, and your CAKE token dividends.
