Audius is a decentralised music streaming platform that allows anyone to publish their music for free. Artists can upload their music to the network, streamed by nodes to listeners through the Audius app. Artists will have full ownership of their music and can decide how to monetize their music on the platform. Audius is also in a partnership with TikTok, allowing artists to use their TikTok profile to sign up and get verified on Audius. With the integration, artists that upload their music on Audius can also share it on TikTok more easily.  

Audius (AUDIO) is the network’s native utility token. It is used as a reward for staking and to compensate artists streamed on the platform. AUDIO token holders can participate in the network’s operations as content nodes or discovery nodes. Content nodes host and manage content on behalf of the artists. Discovery nodes index the metadata and music to the content ledger. Users wanting to vote on proposals for network updates can earn governance power by frequently contributing to the network.

The market cap of AUDIO now stands at about $251 million, with over 1 billion AUDIO tokens in circulation (as of early June 2023). AUDIO’s all-time high (ATH) price peaked at $4.95 in March 2021 and is now trading at about $0.24. (as of early June 2023).

Audius (AUDIO) is available on the Matrixport app; alongside other blue-chip cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), stablecoins (USDT, USDC and BUSD), and many more. Users can deposit, withdraw and transfer AUDIO on the app.
