Interview with Tom Stuart, Founder of TRAX
In this episode, we talked with Tom Stuart, Founder of TRAX.
TRAX is a social marketplace for music running 100% on-chain on the Internet Computer Protocol (ICP).
TRAX was born out the observation that smaller and medium sized artists are being mistreated by the music industry.
A purpose-built platform for artists and music lovers, TRAX delivers a curated feed of music content wrapped in a social media interface. In the style of popular membership platforms like Patreon, TRAX joins up content distribution and outreach with monetization. Users may access creators’ streaming catalogue and social media content at the same time through one individual subscription, giving artists commercial and creative control over their career in a single Web3 space.
Fans will finally have access to a litany of exclusive content not available on typical streaming/social media, including live engagement opportunities with their favourite artists. Artists themselves will benefit from a highly lucrative subscription model which is multiplicative rather than than based on raw streams; the more fans they sign up, the more money they earn at the end of the month.
