BitSong Overview

BitSong is a multifunctional blockchain-based ecosystem built to empower the music industry. It unites artists, fans, distributors in an environment where music, merchandise, and fan loyalty are assets of value.

BitSong’s decentralized ecosystem of services providers the global music community with a trustless marketplace for music streaming, Fan Tokens, and NFTs, powered by the BTSG token.

Project Development

BitSong was conceived in 2018 by the developer and entrepreneur Angelo Recca. Angelo realized that while the digitalization of music has brought many benefits to the industry, it’s also created a new set of problems around the ownership of music and attribution of royalties. He joined forces with Iulian Anghelin and BitSong was born.

The initial intention was for BitSong to become an Ethereum-based application where fans could stream music and artists could receive royalties directly. However, after discovering Cosmos and its ambition to become the “Internet of Blockchains,” Angelo and Iulian immediately recognized the full potential of becoming part of a multi-chain environment.

After launching the main BitSong blockchain in August 2020, the bitsong-2b mainnet went live on October 21, 2021. Featuring Fan Tokens, NFTs, and music streaming platform, all underpinned by secure, robust, battle-tested blockchain technology, the launch of BitSong marks a turning point in the ongoing development of the music industry.

BTSG is the native token of the BitSong Network. It is used by the BitSong governance system to vote on blocks and improvement proposals. The amount of BTSGs staked as well as the duration of the validator’s staking term defines their voting power on improvement proposals.

BitSong is a bech32 standard token and is used not only for staking but also for paying fees and for exchanges between artists and their fans, music providers, and investors.

Artists, music industry participants, and fans can use BTSG to:

  • Buy, sell, and trade Fan Tokens
