Blockchain startup Ujo Music first came to our attention when it worked with musician Imogen Heap in 2015 on the release of her ‘Tiny Human’ song.
Since then, it’s been preparing to launch as a fully-fledged blockchain platform for musicians, with the company providing an update on Friday on its plans for an artist portal.
“With an identity that is creator-controlled, we will enable artists to publish music, control licensing options, and set distributions without giving up their rights,” explained Ujo.
“With a clear path to showcasing their creations responsibly, we are holding true to our ethos of delivering a more equitable, transparent, and easy to navigate music supply chain that can be monetised by creators.”
There’s more news to come however. “Within the next month, we will be showcasing another vision for what’s possible on Ujo – an artist store, which exemplifies the type of application that can easily be built on top of our platform,” claimed the company. “This will provide a glimpse of a new music ecosystem that is waiting to be explored on the other side the Ujo Artist portal.”
