What is eMusic's mission and vision?
Our mission is to bring to life eMusic’s values of fair pay and rewards for fans, artists, and music services by rebuilding the fundamental music distribution infrastructure. We aim to create and promote balance, transparency and efficiency:
1) An enhanced eMusic experience with complementary features enabled by Blockchain efficiencies: more music, more features, and better pricing for the music they love
2) A fully transparent music publishing system that can be used by any producer or creator of music - from unencumbered individual artists right up to major labels with 1,000s of artists on their roster.
3) A frictionless method for music retailers and streaming services to enter into direct, profitable agreements with existing content providers.
4) A set of tools for managing music royalties and rights holders that provides instant access to funds and the flexibility to redistribute rights.
5) Seamless integration of a re-shaped music industry that requires no change to listening habits for music fans, whether they stream their music or download it to own.
Why is eMusic launching a Blockchain platform?
Today, artists are creating more content than ever before, but earning less as more and more fans switch from purchasing music to streaming. However, slim margins are also pushing most popular streaming services into bankruptcy. ' +
It’s clear that the economics of today’s streaming model are unsustainable. Providers are losing billions and most musicians and songwriters can barely scrape together minimum wage after labels, distributors and publishers take a disproportionate cut of the revenues. ' +
It is time to disrupt this broken industry, to ensure artists are paid fairly for their music and to support healthy competition between service providers. By decreasing the role of inefficient middleman, creators can retain a larger share of the revenue and the fans can continue to enjoy music the way they want to on streaming and retail platforms like eMusic. ' +
As the first major music service to fully embrace Blockchain, our eMusic Blockchain project is about developing a sustainable music ecosystem for artists, service providers, and the fans that support them.
How is eMusic uniquely positioned to bring a Blockchain solution to the music industry?
eMusic is a digital music pioneer, serving over 47 million passionate music fans from around the world since opening the first digital music store back in 1998. eMusic is a powerful, well-respected music brand and a strong business that has persevered through dramatic industry change – selling nearly a billion downloads. ' +
We have millions of customers that value music ownership and rewarding artist, we have millions of talented artists looking for new ways to connect with their fans, and we have hundreds of thousands of supportive independent labels searching for new sources of revenue.
We also have unique agreements with our music label partners that enable eMusic to offer over 26 million tracks for purchase, using the eMusic token, immediately following our token generation event.

What makes the eMusic token valuable?

It also enables members of the music industry to independently crowdfund projects and promote their music through their fanbase and the eMusic platform.
EMU purchases also represent a contribution to the future of the music industry, where artists will be paid fairly for streaming and reproducing their work and fans of music can build closer bonds with the artists they love.
