cXc Music: Elevator Pitch
cXc Music is the musical revolution we all want.
Welcome to the Revolution in Music Promotion, Distribution, and Charting.
cXc Music offers artists and listeners a new way to connect on a global and local level. Post a song on cXc Music, and your city will know.
Our revolutionary cXc Music mapp (map app) allows you to find and share music in your local area, or anywhere in the world. Our tools put you on the map, metaphorically and literally. Listeners: Find new and hot music made in your area. Artists: Share your music with the community instantly. cXc Music provides free tools to share your music, and climb to the top of the charts in your area code and beyond.
cXc Music allows artists to geotag their Spotify, Soundcloud and Youtube tracks on our map, as well as events, giving local listeners an easy way to find new local music and music event.
Listeners find and vote on the music they like and help the artists they love climb from local acts to global chart-toppers, all without record labels or Billboards.
Artists get the exposure they really want and get their music out in their community with little effort. Listeners can easily find what music created in any area has the most buzz in each genre.
Songs that get the most UPs show up bigger and brighter on the map. When you are looking at a state, only the best songs in the counties will show up, allowing songs that do well in the local area to get wider exposure.
The app generates top 12 charts (and beyond) from individual ZIP codes, cities, counties, areas states, nations and the whole world. New charts are generated every 5 minutes. When you travel to a new town you can quickly look at the top artists in your favorite genre and join in on musician-posted events.
For musicians and bands, cXc Music means a level playing field. You are the best in town? Prove it. You want to perform at a show? Throw it.Looking for local artists to collaborate with? Found it. cXc Music gives you the tools to do all this and more. What’s more? All the exposure you will get for your Youtube, Soundcloud, and Spotify brings you followers, plays, and lifelong fans.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to re-upload your entire catalogue on our platform. We just provide tools to organize and promote the music that’s already out there. Just link the music you have up online.
One Algorithm To Sort Them All
cXc uses a triangular voting system, first of it’s kind. We call it Purple. Users get one piece of free currency (a Sol) every day. This unit is divisible into 288* UPs (votes). You can never have more than one Sol chip, and if you spend yours, you will be given a new one every day. Sol chips are spent by UPing content.
The creator of the UPed content receives equal amount of Blue Chips (BLU) also worth 288 UPs. A user can never have more than 1 Sol, so they can’t accrue voting power, but artists can collect as much Blue as they want, which has the same voting power.
There are no rules against voting on your own content, and it is actually key to getting exposure. Anyone can UP their content to get some views with Sol or Blue. Having Blue means that an artist can buy the way to the top of the charts for a short time, hopefully landing them some views, fans, and more Blue than they spent.* – Why 288? We calculate the rankings every 5 minutes. There are 288 5-Minute monads in each day, a vote for each monad (though voting all at once is fine!)
Artist that collect blue chips can also exchange them on an open exchange for a Steem-based Smart Media Token called purple (PRP). Purple is like Bitcoin, Ethereum, or any other cryptocurrency: it’s worth real money. So basically, up-and-coming artists can get paid for promoting their music, instead of the other way around. Really, dude.
Purple is valuable because it allows anyone to buy Blue to promote their work locally and globally. The money you spend goes to artists, because the blue is bought from the artists, not cXc. So, all the “advertising” dollars on the platform go directly to musicians. Even better, the system contains economic limits on how many paid votes are even possible, so the collective always have true power over the charts.
But wait. There’s more!!
cXc Music is just the beginning for cXc and Purple. cXc Media will house similar media Mapps, cXc Video, cXc Lit (Literature), cXc Art (Photos, graphics and more), cXc News, and cXc Games. Outside of cXc Media, cXc Solutions and cXc Ideas will provide a platform for people around the world to come together to solve problems. cXc Pueblo provides a framework for municipalities to give their citizens a voice. Beyond cXc, any developer can code their own Mapp using Purple with our open source framework coming soon to mapps.io.
