Music Industry 2.0 – Fan Powered Royalties

Better Than Stream Share Revenue From Spotify – We Tell You Why!
A Better Way Of Artists Payment.

What are fan-powered royalties?

Fan-powered royalties are a more equitable and transparent way for independent artists who monetize directly with the streaming platform to get paid. The more fans listen on a streaming platform, and listen to your music, the more you get paid. Under the old model, money from your dedicated fans goes into a giant pool that’s paid out to artists based on their share of total streams. That model mostly benefits mega stars. Under fan-powered royalties, you get paid based on your fans’ actual listening habits. The more of their time your dedicated fans listen to your music, the more you get paid. This model benefits independent artists.



Fan-powered royalties are a more equitable and transparent way for independent artists to get paid. With fan-powered royalties, each listener’s subscription or advertising revenue is distributed among the artists they actually listen to, rather than being pooled. This new model benefits independent artists and empowers fans to play a larger role in the success of their favorite artists. It also encourages the growth of local scenes and the rise of new genres.

How do fan-powered royalties work?

The streaming platform pays royalties based on what portion of a fan’s time they listen to each artist. The total amount of money generated by a fan for the artists they listen to is based on a few factors:

1. How much the fan listens to that artist relative to all of their listening time in a given month

2. How many advertisements the fan has consumed

3. Whether the fan has a paying subscription

Fan-powered royalties benefit independent artists whose fanbases are dedicated to listening to their music frequently. So if a fan only listens to an early-stage rapper from Detroit or an emerging singer from France, most or all of their subscription or advertising revenue will go to those exact artists.

The Result

since we know how unfair the monetization on spotifs and co is, we are looking for new ways of artist compensation – this is exactly where we start – every download that takes place is credited to the artist without him having to share with other artists, we create this transparently through quality instead of quantity. Exclusivity instead of everywhere.
