The Audius Platform
$AUDIO enables network security, exclusive feature access, and community-owned governance.
The Audius protocol gives everyone the freedom to share, monetize, and listen to any audio. Thanks to $AUDIO, our users can earn a voice in the platform’s future through active contributions to the network.
Our SoundCloud alternative helps artists monetize their work in creative ways by better engaging true fans. We’re here to create the future of streaming by giving users the means to shape Audius as the recipients of $AUDIO tokens.
The protocol will live forever, owned and operated by a decentralized community of artists, developers, and fans collaborating to defend the world’s music catalog.
Users stake $AUDIO to secure the platform, and in return receive a share of network fees, governance weight, and exclusive feature unlocks.
