Problem / Solution

The music industry is known for its challenges, with many artists struggling to find reputable record labels that can support their music projects while also protecting their copyrights. This often leads to artists feeling compelled to give up control of their music and copyrights in exchange for financial support, which can hinder their long-term success and creative autonomy.

To address these challenges, our team developed this mobile application. The platform serves as an alternative investment app, allowing users to buy and sell royalty streams on a peer-to-peer marketplace. The app aims to provide artists with alternative financing options and enables them to retain control over their royalties. By creating this platform, we aim to make the royalty process more democratic and accessible to everyday users.
