How MiraQle is Building a Fan-First Music Platform

Published

on

What sets MiraQle apart?

There are no other companies in the blockchain sphere that have all the components that we have. We built all of this in order to give fans control of the platform, something that doesn’t really exist anywhere else in the music industry. We’re very proud of that.

What sacrifices have you had to make to get to this moment?

We had a lot of trial and error in the beginning. We’re a music company not a tech company. Since we don’t know everything there is to know about blockchain technology, we ran into a lot of scam artists and a lot of roadblocks in the beginning, just because we weren’t really clear on the kinds of technology we needed to get the results we wanted. But the challenges were worth it, and we feel very confident about the technologies and platforms we’ve developed.

Where do you hope MiraQle is in five years?

We want fans across the world to be part of the music industry. We want them to be producers and consumers at the same time – “prosumers,” if you will. We’re going to keep testing what we can do with our technologies and platforms, and as we keep growing, we can keep stretching into more and different parts of the music industry.
