Decentralized Audio Distribution, Attribution & Monetization
Using Audius, creators can generate immutable and timestamped records for your creative works and register your assets to the Audius network. Because the network is decentralized and secured by blockchain technology, the metadata attribution remains safe, verifiable and immutable.
Providing a transparent network in a space traditionally controlled by third parties, Audius builds a bridge between creators and consumers. Discover new content or verify authenticity, authorized through a truly transparent system of attribution.
Audius uses blockchain technology to ensure that artists get paid safely & instantly as consumers listen to content. Choose from preexisting license terms or create your own and automate the payments, transfers and issuance of licenses.
