We are Moosty






Register your music, manage and pay out royalties, execute crowdfund actions.

Music Lovers

Listen to music legally, donate or invest in musicians and their songs. And share in the profits of your favourite musicians.

Streaming Service

Create or connect a streaming service on the Moosty blockchain and profit from existing contracts and payment services.

Record labels

Move your artist on the Moosty blockchain to automate processes and agreements between the label and the artist.



We envision an easy registration of ownership rights for every musician – a decentralized storage. An easy way to get insight into these rights – transparency. Every participant in the ecosystem gets his fair share – fair distribution. We envision ease of transactions, almost instant payment provision – ease of payment. We put the musician in the centre of the industry again.

We will provide the possibility for every musician to create his or her own business model, provide templates of different models and provide data insights. Give them the autonomy to easily raise funds.   We envision one place to take care of all of your music business. Where every participant has the incentive to add value to the network. Where the founders of the network do not keep accumulating value unless they provide value themselves. A marketplace that in the long term is organised democratically and decentralized.

The Moosty Blockchain Platform will be deployed on the Lisk platform through a sidechain!



Since the advent of the internet the music industry has been in a constant battle how to keep up with the revenues of especially content distribution and the royalties involved. Piracy and streaming solutions have driven down revenues and margins and still there is no ultimate business model that rules them all – soundcloud is in demise, spotify does not pay enough royalties, and others do not pay royalties at all, the industry is being governed like an oligopoly with a few very powerful actors, and, in addition, the current way of doing business requires too much time to get paid without any transparency. Even Spotify and Youtube have difficulty in finding the owners of certain music rights and therefore hundreds of millions of dollars are not sent to their rightful owners, or end up in certain ‘black boxes’.

We believe that developers and musicians – who sometimes are one and the same – could work more closely together to create more services that can aid musicians along the way. There is a need to tackle some of the core infrastructure for the music industry to keep it fair and creative for those thousands of artists to come. Before we can build these targeted solutions and make lives of thousands of musicians easier we will have to emphasize some of the core challenges as tackling these would open up an ecosystem of solutions.

Ownership rights: Currently there is no central storage of ownership rights and the insight in ownership rights is time intensive, incomplete and non-transparent. The necessary solution is live and transparent insight in ownership rights.

Physical and digital distribution: The distribution of your revenue takes time. Sometimes it takes months, without any guarantee that the right amounts are transferred to your account. The distribution should be artist-centric, transparent and quick.

Fair distribution of revenue and alignment of incentives: The industry also faces differences in incentives; some actors within the ecosystem appropriate more value than others, especially the smaller musicians do not have the possibility to appropriate their much needed and deserved value. The incentives of all actors should be aligned and the power of developers should be leveraged more.

Different business models: Every musicians creates his own way of working her or himself to the top. We think it is time to create insights into data so that it is much easier to start from scratch and understand how your fellow musicians did before you. There should be more open and free information for musicians to start. There is need for a better User Interface.

  • Third Parties can integrate with the Moosty Platform through APIs and hosting music content.
  • The third party solutions provides external streaming services to make use of the Moosty Blockchain, pay-out through our system and stream content from artists.
