SoundWave Music Royalties

SoundWave Music Royalties

Project Description

In the NBA industry, basketball players make 50% of the revenue but in the music industry, musicians make only 12% of revenue. With music streaming, Spotify has 8 million artists but only 13,000 artists made at least $50k in 2020 at a rate of $3,700/1 million streams. Everyone in the world listens to music, but the global music industry size is tiny at $21B (Gaming $152B, Box Office $42B). Fans can't own a song to show support on streaming platforms and demand curve economics does not support the idea of “100 true fans” or “1,000 true fans”.
