If you are an aspiring artist, it would be wise to reconsider before you put your songs onto these platforms and try to search for an alternative platform or solution.

Did you know that artists only received 2% of the $43 billion the industry generated in 2017?
When revenues are at an all-time high at $43 billion a year in the US, it makes no sense that artists only take home 12%. They created the content but they are getting the smallest piece of the pie. US consumers alone spend over $20 billion a year on music, but record labels, publishers, streaming companies, radio satellites, and other players who stepped in to help with distribution and sales took almost $10 billion, while artists received just around $5 billion. Majority of what the artists received even came from touring. This is according to Citigroup’s media, cable and satellite researcher Jason Bazinet. Artists don’t really get what they should for their works. Even Taylor Swift boycott Spotify in the past when she claimed she was being ripped off over royalties.

If these artists would like to increase their earnings, they must look for an alternative way of publishing their content. Ideally, artists should be able to release their content directly to consumers so they could take the majority of the profit. They should be able to cut all these middlemen and look for a platform that compensates artists fairly.

With AVXChange, artists and content creators will be compensated properly and consistently. Anyone, including new artists, can easily share media files to the network and start earning. AVXChange seeks to give all artists the same industry-leading percentage (60%) of the purchase price.

With that being said, do you think these streaming services are deemed to be a loss-making giants?

Fractured Streaming Services, Drive Users to Piracy –  AVXChange Offers a Solution

Fractured Streaming Services, Drive Users to Piracy – AVXChange Offers a Solution

Streaming war is coming!

For the last decade, streaming services like Netflix have become a popular way of watching television and film which lead to the disruption of the entertainment business model. Streaming has become the standard for watching movies and TV-shows for most individuals and has become the biggest competitor for piracy sites. With the rise of more and more streaming services by large media companies such as Apple and Disney, it is becoming difficult for consumers to choose which services to subscribe to in order to get all the files they want, especially now that these companies are spending a great deal more on producing exclusive content.

Are consumers ready to pay for three, five or more different monthly subscriptions?

According to research by piracy research firm MUSO, people are likely to use unlicensed platforms to search for content that is unavailable. Which means individuals are considering to pirate those files since they feel like they are already paying too much for their subscription and are not willing to pay for any more streaming services.

If you are currently subscribed to any streaming service, are you willing to ditch current services for a better solution?

For those reasons previously mentioned, AVXChange would like to present our platform to those unsatisfied consumers. AVXChange’s platform will be available in any country and will allow users to purchase any content they wish through a single interface. Which means, AVXChange is going to provide all the files you want, any time you want without having to pay or create several accounts with various retailers to acquire all the possible content you wish to acquire.

AVXChange or Audio Video eXchange is an incentivized peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing platform designed for the exchange of audio and video entertainment over the internet. It is a unique distributed P2P file sharing platform built using Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), blockchain, and our native cryptocurrency (AVX), for incentivized purchasing and participation, easy global transactions, security, and immutable transparent transaction history.

AVXChange Airdrop Distribution Announcement

AVXChange Airdrop Distribution Announcement

We are pleased to announce that AVXChange airdrop distribution has ended!

We want to express our sincere gratitude to the AVX community for their continued attention and support toward our project. We ask that you all continue to spread the word about AVXChange as we get closer to our public beta release. Since you can no longer get AVX prior to official network launch/IEO, we want to remind those of you interested, that we will be issuing native AVX tokens to beta testers to use on our network for the purpose of beta testing.

The ERC20 AVX tokens that you received from this airdrop will only act as a placeholder for the future native AVX tokens and are not compatible with the AVXChange platform and its corresponding features. Therefore, they need to be migrated onto the new blockchain.

Once the final blockchain solution is fully developed, tested, and successfully verified, a self-sufficient blockchain (the mainnet) will be launched. All AVX tokens will be created in the genesis block and will be available for token swap or migration. During the token swap, users will be able to swap their ERC20 AVX for the mainnet AVX or the native AVX on a 1:1 basis. Users who hold the ERC20 tokens will receive the same amount of the native AVX tokens.

Our beta testers will initially need to apply with us, so if you are interested please click here to apply:
