Changing the Tune of the Music Industry

Music is an intricate part of our lives. Humans of all cultures have invented and developed unique brands of music, proving its fundamentality to our existence. Music can cause us to move with it or sing along. It molds our moods and sets the ambiance of the space that holds us.

I hope everyone is having a good time with their family.

2021 will be a year full of news:

All the news are the result of years of hard work by different teams. I am happy to be a part of this industry trying to use my time making something unique.

I have to thank all of you who believed in the project and gave me a different thrill every day. Treasure your experiences, improve yourselves and make the world a better place.

I wish you all a happy new year.

The new supply is 116,420,850btsg

As we promised, unsold and unused tokens from our ICO were burned!
