The Future of Investing in Web3 Music with Brett Shear

5/10
January 17th, 2023
Brett Shear, aka BlockchainBrett, knew early on that he wasn’t meant for a traditional 9-5 path. While studying accounting in undergrad, he quickly identified discontent with the average business track and began searching for big ideas to spark his imagination. Inspired by his older brother Myles Shear, who manages EDM artist Kygo, Brett searched for a passion of his own eventually leading him to web3.

Exclusive: Daniel Allan & Reo Cragun on "Criteria"

6/25
December 13th, 2022
Daniel Allan and Reo Cragun are, once again, leveling up. The web3 trailblazers have both had groundbreaking years with Daniel’s Glasshouse, Reo’s Frameworks, and the LNRZ project all making waves. But they have their sights set higher. They want to put web3 music on the map. And they want to do it with Criteria. Their first full-length project as a collaborative unit–the 8-track EP, as its name implies, seeks to set a new standard. Sporting partnerships with Sound, Bonfire, OnCyber, Spinamp, and Argpeggi–the 2500 edition drop, available to the public on December 16, is ready to raise the bar, and so is the music.

The Collaborative Free Mint: The Journey of the Drop

21/500
November 8th, 2022
We are in a moment where more artists than ever before experimenting with distribution technologies at the same time, and I really believe we need to be documenting the details for the future. We all have our own reasons and our own paths, and I’m happy to share mine with you. At the start of every release for me lies a story, a story in the music. It is in the music that I find the seed for all my ideas that I build, whether that is the artwork, the visuals, social media content or, as I have got deeper in to using web3 tools, the way I distribute. I start by saying this because music is the centre of everything for me, and staying true to this has always kept me on the right path… there are no short cuts working this way, but I know I can look back on my decisions without regret.

The Spirit of Web3: Sound Lounge Live + Iman Europe

5/500
December 6th, 2022
Walking into the Peppermint Club in LA on a Wednesday night for Sound Lounge Live, I don’t know what to expect. I’ve spent the past decade following the music and chasing the buzz, and have been to more shows, showcases, and industry events than I can count. But tonight is different. This is my first web3 music event. Months of online interactions and interviews, I’ve yet to be face-to-face with anyone in this room. Countless conversations around the culture of web3 and its community, I’m finally IRL to see for myself. What am I hoping to find? The next wave.

WISHFUL THINKING!

3/500
November 20th, 2022
During the summer of 2021, the tide would rise in and out of my yard. Ducks would congregate and talk amongst themselves as Cristian jay and I looked for inspiration in their words. We were living in rural Washington state, and our house sat directly on the water. The entire summer was filled with spontaneous creation, the kind where instead of deciding what we would make, we plucked it out of the air as it floated past us.

Get LOUD with So Tuff So Cute

November 15th, 2022
It’s a rare, rainy November day in Los Angeles, and Mija and GG Magree of the duo So Tuff So Cute are in their element. “I love this shit,” says GG, referring both to the rain and to the eclipse that occurred that morning. “Our house is so witchy and cozy so we’re literally like …” “Thriving,” Mija interjects. Mija and GG–both in sweats–sit side-by-side in matching upholstered chairs with a floor to ceiling Monstera plant peeking out behind them. “We moved in together a year ago,” says Mija. “Basically the same time as we started So Tuff So Cute.”

Using Music NFTs For Social Impact: Paying It Forward

25/50
October 18th, 2022
My name is Heno. & I’m a first generation Ethiopian-Eritrean American from Takoma Park, Maryland. I’m an artist, producer, storyteller, community organizer, Web3 trailblazer & so much more, but today I’m speaking to you candidly as a 6’4’ Black man who lives in America. Growing up how I did, it was normal to not speak much on the things we dealt with every single day; whether it’s due to not wanting to burden anyone, not wanting to be labeled with any stigma, not wanting to appear weak or just because society has taught us how to internalize & suppress our trauma REALLY WELL.

Introducing Sound Protocol

September 20th, 2022
When we built Sound, the vision and mission was to create a world where any artist has complete creative control of their art and career without compromising the ability to own the relationship with their audience. In order to do right by artists and their communities, we had to make careful product decisions that allowed us to test our hypotheses about the future of music in a way that would allow us to generate real insights without sacrificing the trust of musicians, listeners, and collectors. We’ve learned a massive amount in a relatively short period of time.

Since the earliest days of Tycho, online communities have played an integral role in the project.

Web3 now presents us with a chance to connect on an even deeper level, which is why I’m launching the Tycho Open Source Community.

Less than a year ago Guild.xyz started as a simple tool to connect Ethereum with Discord for "token gating".

To change this, we are excited to introduce Guild as an infrastructure for platformless memberships.

I had built a career making music - my band Marian Hill had grown from an up and comer on the Hype Machine charts to a platinum-selling major label act, all the while making my wildest dreams come true: I was making a living making music I loved. But to keep doing this, to keep living my dream…I needed my hands.

July 1st, 2022
The blockchain technology space proceeds in cycles. Today, in July of 2022, we are in a downturn but with more reasons than ever to be excited about the future. July 1st marks seven years since CoinFund was founded at my kitchen table in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in the 2015 Bitcoin bear market. Indeed, as a firm we spent four and a half of the last seven years navigating bear market conditions. Now, as we begin our eighth year as a firm, it’s worth reflecting on just how far the industry — and CoinFund — have come in that time.
