The blockchain hype went public in July 2015 with “Fair Music: Transparency and Payment Flows in the Music Industry,” a report from the Rethink Music initiative at the Berklee College of Music’s Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship.
The problems it outlines are well-known and widely acknowledged:
Soundblock makes the management of physical and digital sales transactions, reporting, and multi-party royalty payments easy with a realtime and transparent Blockchain ledger.
Store a record of every transaction, file download, and payment receipt on a blockchain ledger. These records can never be deleted or changed by anyone ever.
All owners of a project receive reports and payouts simultaneously when digital platform and on-demand storefront sales are recorded to the ledger. This establishes transparency and trust.
Collaborate and share digital assets and production files with anyone, anywhere, confidently and securely with digital contracts that require the approval of all users for any action or use.
Soundblock uses an end-to-end impenetrable storage vault to protect your files, data, documents and contracts across the entire Soundblock, ARENX and Arena Music network.
Make your blockchain ledger public or exclusively manage access to transactions and user actions privately within your internal network. This is ideal for managing multi-project contracts.
The Soundblock API can connect your blockchain ledger to any physical or digital commerce platform. Enterprise accounts can white label the service for stand alone or branded use.
One single account owner creates, manages and approves each individual digital contract and can set the ownership level for all parties for any individual project.
Strategic partnerships with Amazon, Google and Oracle make it possible to reduce risk through a distributed network. Your digital files, NFT's and digital wallets are secure on web3.
We smartly distribute your music and physical merchandise to the most popular music platforms and on-demand merchandise storefronts in the world; while every stream, download, and merchandise sale is documented on a private or public blockchain ledger forever.
Soundblock makes it possible for owners and investors to receive reports and automated payouts simultaneously whenever a transaction is recorded to the blockchain. We have created the most secure and transparent digital music aggregation service in the world. We are a platform where music and merchandise transactions and other digital assets are securely created, shared, stored and documented. This makes auditing, reporting, collaborative storage, digital wallet management and NFT integration easy.
The blockchain was created in 2008 as the public transaction ledger for the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. The technology manages secure transactions that are recorded to the blockchain using a decentralized ledger. Smart Contracts manage digital currency conversions and payments for all parties who have ownership in digital assets which reduce the need for intermediators, arbitrators or other enforcement agencies, allowing an unlimited number of parties who may or may not even know each other, to work together transparently.
In simpler terms, the blockchain and smart contracts make it possible for artists, lawyers, publishers, composers, managers, platforms and other parties to perform secure, documented transactions in a trust-less environment.
Any form of use, or change to the digital asset is recorded permanently and forever on the blockchain as a “timestamped record” of the action. It can never be manipulated, erased, modified or deleted without everyone who is a party to the smart contract, or those who share ownership in the asset, being notified instantly and simultaneously.
The block chain transaction ID’s become a permanent historical record that is attached to the original asset forever.
In most cases, any production or master file type can be uploaded and stored in your Soundblock account. Some of the more common file types include but are not limited to:
Image files (JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, BMP)
Zip Compressed files
All of the web2 music platforms and services we distribute audio content to are not blockchain compatible. In order to develop our end-to-end solution for traditional platforms like Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora and TikTok, Soundblock runs on AWS Quantum Ledge (QLDB) and Amazon’s Managed Blockchain for Ethereum to interact with blockchain based services like the ARENX NFT exchange.
This makes it possible for Soundblock to develop proprietary API’s for third parties to integrate with our blockchain solution that allow Soundblock to upload individual decentralized reports. What Is Decentralized Storage? | Binance Academy
Amazon QLDB is not a blockchain or distributed ledger technology. QLDB stores data and files in an immutable database using cryptographic verification that works in conjunction with a blockchain transaction ledger. Cryptography refers to the science of writing or solving codes. Encryption, the application of cryptography, is the process of converting plain text references into a cipher, which can’t be figured out without a key. Think of the phone number (more specifically, the unique serial number found on every SIM card) as the key used to unlock references the encrypted data or files recorded to the ledger. Every transaction, file upload, change, report, file download, payment and file deletion has a unique identifier, we call the blockchain record.

A blockchain is a digital ledger which is shared with a network of computers using advanced cryptography. Transaction records cannot be faked, counterfeited or double spent as networks of computers are keeping track of any movements of data simultaneously. Blockchain technology also uses tokenization which ensures that information within each transaction cannot be hacked. Data and records are thus securely stored in a blockchain. For example, if a server is down or data has been corrupted, the backup data is instantly available.
they’re saying, you can never get rid of piracy; and that’s the reason we can charge .00000 nothing for a song and completely devalue music. Then you have blockchain technology coming around, and you say, ‘Ah, now we’re able to kind of reverse that process,’ when it comes to licensing music.”
