Frequently Asked Questions

What is Inmusik?

Inmusik is an new kind of music streaming platform that aims to increase the entire economy of the music industry by incorporating game theory and blockchain. Our ecosystem enables participating fans to earn rewards by placing Token votes on content they believe will succeed over time and in turn, share in all future earnings. This approach introduces a new revenue stream for recorded music – something artists, labels and fans very much welcome.

What is $OUND Coin?

The $OUND (pronounced as sound) Coin is a smart contract Token built on the Ethereum (ERC20 token) standard. It is an integral part of the community as it provides a mechanism for Token votes, automatic trusted payment of earnings, other financial transactions and can be used by other third party applications.

Our smart contracts enable the music industry to implement a new form of Digital Rights Management (DRM) on the blockchain. This means it is decentralized, transparent and immutable, ensuring automatic trust in the system.

What is Inmusik Cash?

Inmusik Cash is an internal token designed to be a stable currency, pegged to the USD. It is the Token paid out to artists and labels for streams. One token is equal to $0.01- (1¢) and it always will.

Why is Inmusik using Dual Token system?

Because of the expansive nature of the speculative market, Inmusik has developed a stable currency that made sure artists and curators receive their respective payments. Also, putting billions of streams on blockchain requires a different kind of technology to the main Inmusik Token $OUND. The dual token system solves both of these challenges.

What makes Inmusik different from other music streaming services?

To  enable  a fair music  market economy in  a tech savvy world, Inmusik incorporates  blockchain technology with a blend of concepts  around the principle of ‘Shared Success’ and community  curation.

 

Inmusik is a Blockchain-powered music ecosystem that introduces a new asset class – securitized music. For the first time ever, fans can invest in the future success of music. We’ve created a completely new revenue model for recorded music that integrates with our streaming platform, designed for the active enjoyment of music and the growth of the entire industry’s economy.

Is Inmusik a free music streaming platform?

There are two ways to participate on Inmusik: buy in or work in. For those who choose to buy in, there is a monthly subscription fee which is competitive to other streaming sites that offer unlimited streaming of mainstream content. To work in, users can do a range of tasks within the community like, verify content, vote and earn from payouts, earn referrals for sharing content or helping us choose the best 7 seconds of songs. We aim to ensure that every user who provides value to the community is rewarded and so it is entirely possible, for users to not have to pay cash to limitlessly listen to all their favorite music on Inmusik.

As a musician, how can I make a living on Inmusik?

Inmusik has invented a new revenue stream for recorded music. As a musician, our platform enables you to receive increased, fair, and transparent payouts which are in direct proportion to your impact within the community. Inmusik can also help you find and build an active fan base, and in the future, earn more through ticketing and selling your merchandise. Inmusik will be a fan creation machine that will help musicians earn more while being able to upload and manage your own content, connect and communicate with your fans.

I’m a music fan and love listening to music, if I stream, vote for my favorite music can I really earn money on inmusik? And if I do, in what form would it be?

You sure can! We believe that all those who positively contribute to the success of the venture should be rewarded based on the measurable value they contribute.

Here’s how you can earn: using your $OUND Tokens, you can vote on a song and with that vote, you then own a stake of the songs future earnings. This means that earlier voters on popular songs will earn the most as you share in all earnings after your vote. Also, the more Token votes you make, the bigger your stake will be. To add to that, listeners can also earn by referring other listeners to a song. Each referred listener will add to your stake of the refers pool giving everyone a fair opportunity to earn using our unique model.  

If I don’t have $OUND tokens, can I still be a member of Inmusik?

Yes. Inmusik allows everyone to enjoy unlimited music streaming by purchasing a  monthly subscription, just like other streaming platforms. However, as you can earn on Inmusik by helping to curate music, your subscription rate can also be lowered when you contribute to the community. If you prefer to listen only, the subscription price is the same each month.

Step 1 – Go to their site at https://www.myetherwallet.com/. You should be seeing a pop-out about important things to remember when making your ETH wallet. Read through those,

Step 2 – After the pop-out reminders, you should be seeing their homepage and you will be asked for a password for your new wallet. Your password encrypts (protects) your private key so make sure not to forget it. Click ‘Create New Wallet’ once you finish typing up your password.

Step 3 – Once you have set your password, you should be redirected to a page where you can download your Keystore. Download this and save it somewhere safe. Do not lose this. You cannot recover this when this gets lost. After you read the warnings, click the ‘I understand. Continue’ button.

Yes, you can. Despite the restriction that the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) has placed on purchasing cryptocurrencies from RBI-regulated entities, it cannot restrict you from investing/purchasing cryptocurrencies directly from an international company. It abides by the law in India that anybody can hold cryptocurrency.

Will small independent artists also get a chance to sign up and upload music?
