It seems to be open source:


Mmm. Basically they’re a soundcloud/spotify platform based in a blockchain protocol in terms of monetization, that’s it. Only their client (Another React app) and protocol (ethereum) are open source (Apache License 2.0) the rest is the same: Another privative/centralized music platform with DRM.

At the moment the only real federated/decentralized music platform is Funkwhale. Or Jamendo which is centralized but all its content is under Libre/Free copyright licenses like Creative Commons.

  • Still not open source, it has an extremely lacking song library, not particularly better for user privacy, doesn’t pay artists, lacks artist verification, a lackluster at best rollout, etc.

    I think it’s something to keep an eye on, but it’s nowhere near where it needs to be yet.
