Sonorus is a Web3 protocol to revolutionize how music, and eventually all sorts of content forms, are published, distributed, and monetized. Musicians and listeners can earn money through uploading, listening to, and promoting music. In the future, we are planning to launch music streaming developer SDKs and Sonorus database to further benefit developers and broader users.
The reason why we are here is we believe the traditional music industry has to be changed. Content artists are underpaid — they usually only receive 12% of the streaming revenue and most traffics are going to the top 1% of artists. Listeners are undervalued — they share the music with their network and promote the music to broader audiences, but never get paid.
Note: Sonorus is currently under development, so contents in the Whitepaper could be changed in the future.
