A survey conducted by eMusic revealed that its listeners would use cryptocurrency to allow artists to earn more, receiving a larger music revenue split.

It has been reported that 65% of eMusic customers would use cryptocurrency if it was for the aforementioned reasons. It is worth noting that a mere 8% of the respondents had used Bitcoin (BTC) or any other crypto in the past.

However, 800 eMusic users answered questions about cryptocurrencies and their use in the music industry.

Survey data revealed that 40% of music listeners overestimate the number of royalties that artists receive when their music is purchased or streamed. 87% believed that a “fair share” for the artists would be a higher sum, with the most popular response being a 50% split.

Likewise, the report released in May by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry showed that music streaming boosted music revenues to over $20 billion in 2019. Still, an analysis by the music news website Soundcharts estimates that artists are paid only $0.00318 per stream on Spotify.

As it has been reported at the end of May, eMusic is building a decentralized music distribution system to reduce the cost of inefficiencies and pay artists more when fans purchase and stream their music.

Launched in 1998, eMusic is known for being one of the first websites to sell DRM-free MP3 music recordings.

Company data website Owler reveals that the firm employs 278 people and has annual revenue of $65.7 million.

Thus, independent tech marketing and PR consultant Eric Doyle said last year that there are, in fact, many projects trying to apply blockchain technology to the music industry.
