On the surface, Unchained Music’s distribution platform will be indistinguishable from any other music distribution platform, requiring little to no knowledge of Web3, NFTs, or blockchain. Users will create a user profile which they will confirm via email, then log in to the platform. At this point, they will fill out their user profile, upload their track(s), artwork, track metadata, release date, etc, in accordance with the content guidelines of each digital platform. Unchained Music will then submit their track for distribution to 200+ streaming platforms and digital stores, including Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Youtube, as well as content libraries for TikTok, Instagram, and other social platforms. Eventually, this will extend to Web3 Music and Music NFT platforms.
Once submitted, distributed, and released, royalties and payments will be collected on behalf of the artist, and placed either in a stablecoin liquidity pool or in US Government short-term bonds after being converted to USDC via Circle. After the locking time frame and beyond the minimum locked amount, 100% of the royalties will be able to be withdrawn by the artist. This payout will initially be available in fiat (upon open beta in Feb 2023), and later on by USDC on-chain transfer into a defi-NFT controlled by the artist.
