Royal is creating an open market for true ownership of music.
For the first time, artists can share music rights directly with fans, building a new revenue stream that empowers them to retain control over their work.
Music ownership has been limited to labels and private equity groups — a setup that has resulted in only 12% of recorded music revenue going to artists (and 0% going to fans). With royal, artists create more value for their music, powering their career while taking their fans on the journey with them.
This is the beginning of an era where artists and fans see each other as partners. Royal is at the forefront of this movement, developing new technologies leveraging the blockchain to unlock the power of ownership both for artists and fans.
