Choon ICO Review
Choon ICO
Ticker: NOTES
ICO start: 2018-07-02 00:00:00
ICO end: 0000-00-00 00:00:00
Tokentype: ERC20
Hardcap: 500,000,000 NOTES
Platform: Ethereum
Distributed: 25%
Accepting: ETH

Since launching in May 2018, the site has amassed over 5,000 tracks from 2,000 artists making it the blockchain's largest music streaming platform with a thriving user community.

Choon is built by music industry and blockchain professionals including international DJ and record producer, an Gareth Emery, and blockchain developers and co-founders of the renowned CryptoPunks project, John Watkinson & Matt Hall. Its advisory board includes Mark Gillespie (Manager, Calvin Harris), RAC (2017 Grammy Winner), Benedict Chan (CTO, BitGo) and Marco Santori (President, Blockchain).

With 25% week-on-week user growth and press coverage in BBC, Forbes, Billboard, and Coindesk, Choon's token sale for their native NOTES token should be one of 2018's hottest media token-sales.


Choon will be a commercial-grade music-streaming ecosystem designed for the public at large, not simply the cryptocurrency community. So, while blockchain technology will allow us to deploy a trustless, low cost decentralized marketplace for music and near-real-time royalty payments for the regular (non-blockchain-savvy) user, blockchain interactions will happen unnoticed and under the hood, while being fully accessible to those looking for them.
This means that Choon is positioned to be one of the �rst generation of projects to introduce blockchain technologies to the rest of the world, because it can be used by anyone.
