Audiocoin (ADC) Scrypt-based alternative cryptocoin

20 Jun


AudioCoin (ADC) is a digital currency for the music industry. It was recently reported that the Music Industry had hit rock bottom in terms of revenue generated. While streaming sites show some growth (mainly due to the younger demographic), artists and independent labels continue to suffer from what is (at best) a flaky business model. What the music industry needs right now is innovation and a fresh start. It needs a Bob Dylan strapping on an Electric Guitar, It needs a Woodstock, it needs a Punk Rock style ground zero revolution. AudioCoin builds on the Peercoin and (by association) Bitcoin protocol to provide a new way to consume music. It breaks down the barriers of traditional e-commerce systems and provides a super cool way for music fans and artists to engage in viral marketing. The main gain is that artists (producers) and music fans (consumers) are rewarded tangibly and thereby rendering the current streaming model both archaic and redundant.
