What is Choon?

Choon is a music streaming service and digital payments ecosystem powered by the Ethereum blockchain designed to solve some of the music industry’s most fundamental problems.  There are so many great things about Choon for the artist and the listener!

A few of the Choon music features I am excited about are…

  • When you play a song on Choon, your money goes directly to the artist or band via a cryptocurrency called Notes ($NOTES.)
  • It’s going to be free for the first year (until May 2019)!
  • Listeners get PAID to listen to new music. 
  • Playlist curators get paid a percentage of NOTES earned from streams from their playlist.
  • Smart Contracts automatically handle revenue splits.
  • Artists can stake NOTES on the platform for rewards and unlockable features

Choon FAQs

Right now, the answer a solid yes. Use this handy tool to calculate your earnings.

Too early to tell, and it doesn’t really work like that. The value changes with every single sale and purchase. Read Marco’s article for more info on this.

As of right now, the only place/DEX I have found it on, is Etherdelta. Here is the link: https://etherdelta.com/#0x5e6364d4534f780ae053b93b45c8b8840e683eb7-ETH

Be patient is my best advice, and don’t depend on Notes for rent quite yet.

Choon $NOTES Are Now Unlocked!

December 1st, 2018|

It’s been a long time coming. (Not really!) but today is finally the day. Choon’s cryptocurrency token, $NOTES, are officially unlocked as of the writing of this update! It’s December 1st, 2018 and the NOTES are free. This means $NOTES can be bought and sold. We will see how the value develops once the token hits a few cryptocurrency exchanges. There were a few showing interest on Twitter, including an exchange that took a poll of which coin to list next, of which Choon lead the way! Read the full official release notes on Medium.

Fellow Choon artist Marco Svarda wrote a user-friendly article about what the unlock really means for artists and users.

200K Choon NOTES!

November 16th, 2018|

Thank you for your ongoing support!! Shout out to everyone on Instagram who checks out my music on Choon. We’re all helping to shift the music business towards a fairer, more transparent industry. Remember, Choon is not trying to compete with Spotify. They want to help artists get a fair wage for their music. If that means a few hundred streams a month, an artist will be able to but themselves a nice dinner. A few thousand might be able to pay your (non-metropolitan) rent! A few thousand on Spotify can barely buy a beer.

General Update & Artists for Life

September 25th, 2018|

Since The announcement of the token unlock delay, things have been a bit quiet at Choon. Still growing, but calm. A lot of people are questioning the platform, and rightfully so – but the Choon team and the artists on Choon are helping to educate those interested. Every product goes through a vetting stage – this is Choon’s.

We’ve seen some new people in the ChoonHQ telegram and that’s cool. Plus Kyrptokind and Clyde Rouge spearheaded the first every charity on Choon, and their goal is to buy the rainforest. Sign me up!! I’ll make one of my next songs donate some to the cause. So cool! A great use case example of smart contracts in the real world.

New Choon: ? BOOMERANG ? has landed!

September 14th, 2018|

This song is my first commercially produced and engineered song in many years. It’s about that early phase in a relationship where you’re excited but anxious. But it’s also an homage to the timeles saying: “If you love it, let it go.” If it’s meant to be, it will come back to you. Whatever that may be. It doesn’t have to be about a person! Written by HoneyChrome, produced by Mike Rogers/Le Sonic (Deee-Lite, Erasure, Chubby Checker), mastered by Randy Merrill (Lady Gaga, Adele) at Sterling Sound.

How to Get your ASCAP/BMI registered Music on Choon with a Direct License

August 31st, 2018|

When Choon first launched, we were not allowed to upload music that is registered with a performing rights organizations (PRO) like BMI and ASCAP. This was a big roadblock for me. Not for every artist on Choon, but for a good handful of us. There are benefits to signing with a PRO, even if you aren’t getting a ton of spins yet. I am collecting royalties for every live show I perform. That’s pretty cool. I was going to considering giving up my BMI contract if Choon $NOTES held enough value to compensate. Turns out we don’t have to decide, and can do both, with a direct license.

Check out my article on Medium about the proper process to get your BMI/ASCAP registered songs on Choon!

Choon Exclusive Premier: Cashing Out

August 22nd, 2018|

In the spirit of earning a fair value for your music, I released Cashing Out, song I have been working on for a while now. It’s about being broke but gaining the confidence and motivation to change that. The song will be available exclusive on Choon for 2 weeks, then the song will hit Spotify, etc. This is a strategy that I hope one day can be employed by all indie artists to get a return on their investment before releasing to legacy streaming platforms.

Direct Licensing Makes PRO Managed Songs Legal for Upload on Choon

August 13th, 2018|

After some research and emailing, I was able to confirm that it is in fact possible to keep your contract with BMI and upload registered compositions to Choon. This is HUGE news! Up untilnow, I was not able to upload my best music to Choon, making it hard to really convey who I am as an artist. Since submitting my direct license, I have uploaded almost all of my back catalog, re-mixing and releasing music that I buried because I wasn’t getting anything from it and wasn’t confident enough in the production. After uploading all of this, my momentum has picked up and people are really responding to my music. It is a great, liberating feeling.

One Month Since Choon Launch

June 2nd, 2018|

It’s been just over 1 month since Choon launched. I have been promoting the heck out of my music on there. We still have a few weeks until we know the value of the Choon cryptocurrency, NOTES, but if one NOTE is worth $0.05, I have made some real money. There is a slew of artist who will earn small fortunes from the early days of Choon.

Choon is helping indie artists get paid more. Every second counts toward my streams! This is ground breaking since Spotify requires 30 seconds of play time to be considered a pay-able stream.
