Over 2,000 verified, independent musicians, bands and labels populating Musicoin now have more power than ever to share their music online and get paid for it instantly via blockchain technology.

Musicoin developers Tamil Vendhan Kanagaraju and Hayrullah Cansu have enabled embedded players to rock inside Twitter feeds and websites the world over. Sharing on Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest and Google+ is also addressed with clickable image links featuring a song’s primary graphics and description. “The musicians gets paid Musicoins every time someone plays their song with these embedded players,” said Musicoin founder Isaac Mao, “At roughly the equivalent of $0.02 USD a play, it’s a significantly higher payout than mainstream music services like Spotify, Soundcloud and Youtube.”

Musicoins can add up, too. In the past week Musicoin hit an all-time high of over $0.07 USD. “Early adopters saw their earnings triple over the course of three days,” said Andre Xu, Musicoin’s Chief Spokesperson, “Building a functional music player the public can share on multiple platforms is another blockchain-first for Musicoin and more innovations are coming quickly. We’re saying to musicians, listeners and the cryptocurrency community, ‘come one, come all. Now is the time.”

Perhaps more amazing is that the public listens for free while musicians get an extremely high stream rate due to Musicoin’s innovative payment scheme. “These payments are realized by harnessing the computer power of the cryptocurrency mining community. This is true decentralization,” added Musicoin Ambassador, Joel “DJ Deadly Buda” Bevacqua, “Billions of websites and social feeds the world over can now relay Musicoin content anytime, anywhere. It’s one of the first examples of blockchain technology interfacing with the average person’s life seamlessly.”

Musicoin (identified by the symbol “MUSIC” on major cryptocurrency exchanges Bittrex and Cryptopia) is a smart cryptocurrency & music licensing platform built upon the Musicoin blockchain. Artists, industry associates, and music listeners worldwide are encouraged to visit Musicoin’s official website at
