Choon will launch May 1st.

After just over five months of heads-down engineering work, we’re happy to announce that the Choon platform will launch at 12PM US Pacific Time on May 1st, 2018.

If you’re an artist: you will receive an email in the next few days providing instructions of how to log into your account. You will be able to check your uploaded music, edit track titles, change artwork, and fill out your profile prior to launch. Please note that any NOTES balances you see on your profile are testnet only and will be reset to 0 on May 1st.

The Daily Distribution of 375,000 NOTES per day will begin on May 1st, and will remain at this rate for five years, after which the number will be reduced.

To ensure we are able to scale in the face of unknown demands on our servers, new artists sign-ups will be restricted during this period. If you are an artist wishing to join Choon, please sign up for our Waiting List instead. We will be rolling out an invite system shortly to allow limited numbers of artists to join the service each day. Artists who submitted music prior to the cut-off date will be free to continue to upload new music via their account.

If you haven’t already, now would be a good time to check out our new White Paper: A few screenshots from it are at the bottom of this post.

And if you need to get in touch with us, here’s how:
Everyone else:

See you on May 1st!
