The music industry is facing challenges in engaging fans and providing transparency, feedback, and rewards. Blockchain technology presents a potential solution by enabling new forms of fan engagement and participation. This paper proposes a blockchain-based music platform that leverages Ethereum’s decentralized platform and smart contract functionality. Ethereum’s Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm makes it more energy-efficient than the Proof of Work (PoW) algorithm used by Bitcoin. The platform could facilitate investment in up-and-coming artists, feedback mechanisms, and rewards for fans. The scalability and decentralization of Ethereum make it an attractive choice for building a platform that can accommodate a large number of users and transactions without compromising performance. The proposed platform offers a secure, scalable, and decentralized solution that provides novel ways for fans to engage and participate in the music industry while being energy-efficient, sustainable, and accessible to everyone with a stake in the system.
