The upcoming Big Bang Upgrade will bring some significant changes in terms of user features that we covered in the previous release, namely the Fan Token and NFT modules.
However, the upgrade will also introduce the Inter Blockchain Communication (IBC) and Liquidity Module. While these two modules are less front-facing than Fan Tokens and NFTs, they are nevertheless a vital component in the upgrade, launching some core infrastructural capabilities that will help to power the new BitSong ecosystem.

It will mark the first time that we begin to welcome musicians, music industry participants, and music fans to our ecosystem, thanks to the launch of our Fan Token and NFT modules. Here we take a look at each of the modules and the opportunities they offer to artists and fans.

Fan Tokens

Fan tokens are a brand new phenomenon already making waves in the sports sector. …

Music Deserves More!”

This is the thought that gave birth to BitSong, in the mind of Angelo Recca, Founder, CEO of BitSong in December 2017. The goal was to make the royalty payment system in the digital music world, transparent and more convenient through the blockchain.

Since that time, BitSong has made huge strides in terms of objectives, technology, and development.

It’s also laid a solid foundation for the kind…


We are pleased to announce that, thanks to the invaluable support of Andrea (Dimi) from stakefish, we are close to launching a new bridge connecting Ethereum to the BitSong mainnet. Once it’s live, the bridge will allow the BitSong community to seamlessly transfer their BTSG tokens between the BitSong and Ethereum networks. The bridge will be available for testing next week, and we’re now inviting interested validators to register for participation.

An Ethereum bridge is a fundamental tool for the upgraded BitSong mainnet, providing an essential channel for BTSG liquidity between BitSong and Ethereum. …

By the end of that year, there were over 340 million subscription users of streaming services across the globe.

However, despite the increasing demand for streaming, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to carve out a career in the music industry. According to a poll conducted at the end of 2020 by The Ivors Academy and Musician’s Union, eight out of ten musicians earn less than $200 per year from streaming…
