Originally built on top of the POA network and now fully migrated to Solana, developers of the Audius Desktop app managed to identify numerous inefficiencies with traditional music distribution and are now offering everyone access to the platform that has crystal clear music rights ownership rules and no intermediaries standing between music artists and their fans. The platform is powered by its native AUDIO token, which runs on Solana layer one blockchain with a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism network that features over 200 nodes.
One of the core benefits of Audios to music fans is that they get full access to all uploaded music tracks, with no restrictions placed on its music playback apps on Windows PCs and mobile platforms. Users are encouraged to just download the app and start enjoying music from a large variety of artists such as deadmau5, Katy Perry, Nas, Skrillex, and many others.
The app features a bright white interface that promotes easy discovery of music content that can be streamed with a single click. The main navigation is performed with tabbed commands located on the far-left side of the app, with shortcut categories Discover (Feed, Trending, Explore), Library (Favorites, History), and Playlists.
The platform promotes the use of 320kbps MP3 files, which is a similar quality that is offered by several industry-leading music streaming platforms such as Google Play and Spotify. However, here music files are not protected with any kind of content protection.
Music creators can take full advantage of the Audius network to monetize their creativity without the need to bind themselves to traditional record deals. The platform promotes several ways for monetization, and expanding reach, with extensive plans for the introduction of new premium content monetization options in the future. Content creators have unrestricted access to HQ audio uploads, detailed metrics, a feature-rich dashboard, and more.
