    Ok. I just spent most of the evening uploading some of my more presentable efforts.

    https://choon.co/artists/hornet_therapy/

    What’s next?

    Go down the pub? Retire to the South of France ? :D

  • @AndyPlankton Thanks. I signed up using your link and have uploaded a few tracks of mine that I had forgotten about (including an early Halloween special :)

    https://choon.co/artists/afterglow/

    I will make a big playlist tomorrow of all your tracks plus anyone else in this thread.

    Cheers

  • it's still beta...September will tell more ...

    Here is my link:

    Crypto has shown great promise over recent year$...I have a background in currency so it clicked with me early on...

    You should know....There is streaming hardware platform for sale that will be streaming these tracks too:

  • Thanks for the tip-off @AndyPlankton - i used your code and signed up.

    Would you be able to add https://choon.co/tracks/0sd0av93mh5/my-heart-beats-fast to the AB playlist? (Which i'm just about to have a good ole listen to...).

  • I’ve added everything by everyone in this thread to two playlists. I assume they need to get listened to in order to generate income for the artists?

    I've created an Audiobus playlist on Choon. Anyone who wishes to be added buzz me with your artist and the track you want added and I'll add it.

    Anyone I've already put on, if you want a different track added let me know.

    Cheers Andy! Can you please swap my track Halloweenified with Secrets of the trees. Thanks again and congrats on making the front page!

  • See the thing about Choon.co is not mainly the crypto currency itself but the Blockchain technology. Blockchain enables so called Smart Contracts. Smart contracts are set up in a way that they run autonomously right on time without possibility of intererence from the outside. For us musician this is the big deal. If I upload a track to Choon and sign a Smart Contract between me and my work is automatically saved to the blockchain and transparently available for all to see.
    The Smart Contract fixes who is the artist and who has the copyrights and who gets what amount of royalties from said track. The contract is Smart as it automatically converts all streams of your music to note tokens and issues a statement each night!.
    Choon will open up in the near future, for labels, radios and other ways of consuming music. It will eventually offer streaming packages like apple music this will guarantee that new note tokens are entering the system. This is by far not the only way who Choon will stabilize the platform so the artists don't dry it out for the quick buck.
    Just last week the announced a partnership with a Smart Speaker Startup from the Netherlands that will have access to the Choon library, for each stream to that speaker, no matter where, your smart contract will automatically issue the statement and notes to you each night.

  • Choon is the way music distribution should work. Without all the intermediate parties that drain out your money and value of work.
    Listeners are able to curate playlists and earn tokens themselfs. This way charts are not premade and bought like they are today with Beatport or other big streaming outlets.

  • I reckon they need an app version. (Like Spotify and Soundcloud have apps). Does anyone know if one is coming soon?

  • When uploading a track is there an opportunity to enter an ISRC code, and get given an EAN/ UPC for it representing an ISWC for that work?

  • Bottom line. The music I make as a hobby earns me nothing. Never has. Now it might finance a few app purchases...

    Yes is in development. They have a clear roadmap layed out a good year ahead.

    I added Forest of Rusting Spires to the playlist. If you want one of your others there instead just let me know.

    An app version would be good, the website does work pretty well on mobile, at least on the devices I tried anyway.

  • Thanks for including one of my tracks Andy. :)

  • That really looks interesting 😊
    @AndyPlankton, I just uploaded this, the title track from my „The Road“ Album:
    https://choon.co/tracks/0e7jffmaz42/the-road
    It would be great if you would add this to the playlist

  • Something to be aware of is your work still needs promoting. So the chart side of it is still based on old fashioned ‘drumming up business’.
    There’s a lot of quality on there that has nearly 0 streams which is a shame.

    Thanks Andy. Much appreciated.

  • Is anyone else able to upload from their iDevice? Is there a limit to song length or something (trying to upload a 12-minute track to no avail)?

    Yeah, yeah I'll go back and read the fine print soon, but would appreciate it if someone can answer this.

    Yes i messaged the Choon support a couple of weeks ago. There is a time limit of between 12-15 mins. They were not more specific. I decided all my stuff was much too long anyway for the Choon playlist thing so chopped everything right down. Not had a problem since. Podcasts can be really long. I haven't tested the exact time limits for music tracks...........under 12 mins should be fine...........I'm not sure why they couldn't be more specific....seemed a little odd, but it is still in Beta........

    O.K. Thanks for the quick reply, much appreciated. Just one other question.........is a podcast a different thing then, as some of those are over an hour long? Cheers! Keep up the good work! 😊

    hi there,

    Podcast are only for talking podcasts, not music ones. Thus those can be longer.

    Thanks!
