HONG KONG

On July 1, Musicoin — the world’s first music streaming service powered by blockchain technology — kicked off its second season of MC Plays, its online YouTube show.

Hosted by four dynamic artists from diverse music genres and backgrounds, the show provides a fun and engaging way for Musicoin to connect with the people. Not only do the hosts cover relevant hot topics in music and crypto, they also interview special guests and highlight quality artists discovered on the platform.

PUP (Pain United with Passion), is a conscious Hip Hop artist and entrepreneur from Connecticut. With his visionary mentality, PUP created Crypto Kingz, a YouTube platform merging hip hop innovation with cryptocurrency education to empower the people. He also spearheaded the #Food4U fundraiser which utilizes Musicoin to raise funds for 4Unity Corp — a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. #Food4U provided a real-world example of how merging music and cryptocurrency can actively create positive social impact as simply as pressing play.

DJ CW (Controlled Weirdness) is a veteran producer, DJ, and leader of UK underground scene since the early 80s. He is the curator for Presence Unknown, a new vinyl and digital record label, and music professor at a university in London. DJ CW brings his love of music and expertise, delivering passionate constructive critique to the show.

Khaiim the RapOet (Self Suffice) is an MC and hip hop educator from New York who has performed with respected artists such as Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Alice Walker and Grammy winner Talib Kweli. He also received President Obama’s “Champions of Change” award for lecturing positive messages to the youth. Self Suffice always brings his stage-diving energy and enthusiasm to the MC Plays roundtable.

England native Daniel Lawton is an ambient artist and video coordinator for Musicoin TV. He previously ran his own YouTube channel ACTV (Acoustic Central TV), where he recorded acoustic musical talent. Daniel studied creative music technology at Anglia Ruskin University, receiving first-class honors, and developed an interest in the application of blockchain technology to the music industry. He shares important ventures highlighting Musicoin’s presence at global functions.

MC Plays overall goal is to build a community of people who have a love for music — both artists and listeners — as well as provide insight on the benefits of moving to blockchain-based streaming for everyone, especially independent artists. MC Plays also discusses major Musicoin updates to help bridge the communication and understanding of the platform.

Fellow Musicoin Global Ambassador, DJ, and producer Lethal Skillz joined the MC Plays crew to kick off the season premiere with an amazing interview. On July 8, the hosts will be joined by Nick Yap, Volareo Founder and Musicoin partner.
