AMA Recap: Rocki Ready to Revolutionize Music Industry

With some of the most popular music platforms today seeing a hugely disproportionate split of profits between the artists it highlights, Rocki has identified a gap in the market.

NFT Music Could Revolutionize Industry

The CoFounder of Rocki, Bjorn Niclas, joined Web3Wire to discuss how his project is set to revolutionize the music scene and bring power back to artists who have been operating in exploitative circumstances.  

Rocki is a music NFT platform empowering musicians to earn new revenue streams and listeners to indulge the new wave of music collectibles that may be akin to vinyl collections in the near future. 

“I’ve always thought there was a huge opportunity to build something better. As we saw NFTs becoming popular, I saw a need to invent something new,” Niclas explained in the AMA. “So we put together Rocki, the goal was to build a new way of selling music, and a new way for fans to enjoy the music through NFTs.” 

With 20 years of experience in the music industry at various levels, be it booking agent, tour manager, or otherwise, Bjorn Niclas has been identifying gaps in an industry that he believes is failing the majority of our artists today.

“The current landscape is that 1% of the artists on Spotify account for 90% of the revenue on Spotify,” Niclas explained, citing research that suggested 8/10 musicians earn as little as £200 a year. 

With that in mind, Rocki is offering artists the opportunity to maximize the profits on their artistry and listeners to begin adding to their collections. Just as fans are interested in collecting music in the form of CDs or vinyls through NFTs, this can be indulged further in a way that allows the art form to reward its practitioners fairly. 

Through Rocki, users can now mint a song as a collectible, to find out more about the exciting new platform you can watch the entirety of the AMA below.


What is Rocki?

ROCKI describes itself as a next-generation music NFT and music streaming service, designed to solve some of the most fundamental problems of the music industry. Powered by the ROCKI token, it sees itself as the first platform that rewards both the artists for their streams and the listeners for their participation.
