  1. Inefficiency & low transparency of payments commonly exist in the current industry standard.
  2. The identical unit-priced revenue models don’t distinguish the value of fans well.
  3. There is no effective, trusted way for music networks to transact with each other. SongRise Solutions
  4. Remove All Blackboxes All transactions on SongRise are transparent and instant. No black box algorithm will be applied.
  5. Track and Analyze Value of the Community Graph Identify meaningful relationships and valuable network are built through NFT ownerships and onchain activities.
