music deserves better. Much better.

CLINK.fm is a brand-new type of streaming service, one that’s been re-imagined from the ground up to help music forever—a state-of-the-art music-based entertainment experience. We’re unlocking the true power of the NFT at scale in order to connect retail investors and music creators for the first time ever, all in a luxury, full-catalog streaming app with a 90% payout to music creators. 

X-Factor meets Wall Street

We’re taking money-making in the music industry to a whole new level. Music NFTs on CLINK.fm will be able to trade like a stock. The 24/7 trading action will become a spectator sport—your victories will be celebrated, and the CLINK.fm app will give everyone a front row seat for all the action, regardless of whether they actively trade. Now that’s something that hasn’t been done before, and that’s something that has the power to save music.

Imagine there’s a new song coming out from your favorite emerging artist, and you know that artist is trying to sell the song’s NFT for a certain price to fund a new record or a world tour. You’ll be able to easily invest directly in your favorite artist to unlock a living wage for musicians and create a life-changing, mutually beneficial creator-fan relationship by barely lifting a finger.

Suddenly you’re emotionally involved in seeing dreams become reality. 

better for music

The full app will be ready soon and as an incentive to help us get the word out before the launch, we will soon be giving away credits ($CLINK) for a limited time that you’ll be able to use to stream and invest!

With your help, we’ll introduce tremendous growth and opportunity to the industry—making the future brighter and better for music.

music nfts evolve

The NFTs on our platform are so easy to use, you won’t even know you’re using them. 

Using the latest in advanced, eco-friendly blockchain technology, music fans of all sorts will have effortless access to stream and directly support music, and musicians will have the power to focus more on what they do best: making the finest product known to humanity—music

How does it work? A music NFT will be automatically generated for each song from the full catalog of music for free. The utility NFTs we generate remain behind the scenes and exclusive to the CLINK.fm platform. They represent ownership of the song’s streaming revenue rather than ownership of any type of digital file like the artist-crafted NFTs you may be accustomed to. This is the next evolution of the music NFT. 

Other platform’s collector NFTs
CLINK.fm’s utility NFTs

CLINK.fm acts like any other streaming platform until the artist explicitly logs into their dashboard and chooses to sell their NFT.
Nothing else happens without the owner of the NFT choosing to do it.

You can listen to any song at any time if you have an active subscription—you won’t need to own the NFT to stream it.

WHY WE’RE BETTER

  • Tipping: Fans will be able to easily tip their favorite music creators—with no cut from us. *clink clink*
  • Playlist creators will earn 1% of the streaming revenue when a song is played from their playlist.
  • Algorithm control: Listeners will have control over the degree to which the algorithm is used to find new music.
  • Good for everyone: 20% of our platform’s revenue (1% of each transaction) will go to providing direct cash grants to historically under-compensated musicians and their descendants through an independent, not-for-profit foundation we pledge to create once we reach 5 million active subscribers.

  • Extraordinary Fairness: No free streaming, no fake streams and no backdoor deals are part of our complete-transparency philosophy.
  • Way more to share: Creators receive 90% of their NFT’s streaming revenue, as well as 90% of their NFT transactions. There are no minting fees.
  • Continuous earning: Creators receive 10% of each transaction even after their NFT sells!
  • Regulatory Compliance: We’re committed to following every type of regulation from within each country we operate. This project is very different from most cryptocurrency projects. To attract the widest audience possible, we’re creating a centralized app that runs on our servers and interacts with decentralized blockchains. That means we can operate with the safety and security of our users in mind, without having to make a pretense of decentralization.
  • Music-career launchpad: Someone who is very talented and just starting out with only a few streams might be the exact profile of the true millionaire-maker investment on CLINK.fm.
  • Be your own judge: This will be your chance to find new musical talent, to be the judge, and to be rewarded for your emotional and financial investment in the songs & artists you love.
  • Good for the Earth: Our earth-friendly NFTs use absolutely no crypto mining. An extremely minimal carbon footprint will always be one of our priorities.
