    Regardless of technical analysis (i.e. token distribution, discounts, etc.) business model looks very interesting and relevant, as current situation on the cloud music service. This project has huge capacity considering planned options. GitHub repository looks very solid and impressive, obviously, the team already put a lot of efforts into arranging segregated environments along with the back-end.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The main expectation for me is further development of this project, including a live platform as it looks exciting.


    An amazing idea supported by a strong team of professionals and surrounded by an advanced technology. The documentation and the technical side is very well organised and explicit.

    A dual token economy is intended to solve one of the a major problems of a crypto economy - volatility. MN8 token utilises the services of the network and it is also a rewarding mechanism.

    Risks and disadvantages

    I think the startup should try to attract Dsound's audience (users and artists). Probably some rewarding program is a good way to attract active Dsound's followers and to create like-minded community on social networks.


    A successful evolution of Dsound which has been growing with zero advertising is encouraging. There is an important information about partnerships on the website.

    Team consists of experienced founders and advisors in the music industry. Thus, there are also partnering artists. Besides regular Whitepaper, there is also One Pager, and Pitch Desk.

    Risks and disadvantages

    I wish Roadmap be more detailed, with precise explanation of the platform development. In addition, there is no MVP. At least it is not mentioned on the website. Marketing policy should be better managed. For instance, there is no information about thread on Bitcointalk.


    Overall, it would be difficult for the platform to succeed, as the whole idea is not fully elaborated. Thus, there are many competitors in the music industry now.

    Referral program and rewards for sign-ups leading to active use should facilitate the growth of the community. The team plans that giving away 1000000 free accounts will lead to mass awareness in several months. There is a vesting schedule for the team's share of tokens.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The details of hypothetical two token economy will be discussed and presented later, so there is uncertainty for those investors who wish to make their decision now.


    The team has successful experience in the industry, I believe they can see the best way of the developing their project. A good marketing strategy is presented in the Whitepaper.
