Music3 by MODA DAO

An introduction to MODA DAO

Redefining the future of Web3 music ownership, publishing and licensing via NFT standards, decentralized governance and automated finance. We call it, Music3.

Welcome to MODA DAO.

Problems with music

Problems with blockchain

Three pillars of operation

Pillar #1: Music3 Infrastructure and creator tools

  • Membership structure for ensuring authenticity and network effect
  • Open on-chain music registration
  • International Standard Collaboration Code (ISCC) contract creation

Pillar #2: dPub — A publishing ecosystem for Music3

  • A (dPub) publishing DAO structure that plays the role of maximising the monetisation opportunities for the musical composition and songwriting side of each song in MODA Publishing.
  • A global, digital, autonomous and decentralised licensing and collections agency designed for Web3, NFTs and virtual performances here, in the metaverse and beyond planet earth.
  • Autonomous, DAO-voted grants and decentralised finance options will replace old-school album advances.

Pillar #3: MODA Innovation Lab

  • Pre-release music-hype market
  • Music Genesis NFTs
  • A user-generated content revenue share engine
  • NFT based autonomous micro-licensing
