Audio Marketplace

More than just a streaming platform, the marketplace will allow the full creative workflow to be monetised and collaborated upon. Influencers can earn playlist payments from followers.

Token Ecosystem

MN8 distributed to early adopters for ongoing participation in the economy and its governance. Discover more about our plans for a high-growth, yet stable and liquid token economy.
