[Rejected] Music on Aurora (MoA)

Hello Aurora!:heart::heart:

I present Music on Aurora (MoA)


Music provides practical use cases for Aurora on many levels. Forbes magazine, in an April publication, named Web 3 “the future of entertainment” - and rightly so.

With Music On Aurora, we plan to explore all the possibilities in fostering an efficient and workable collaboration between music and entertainment and Aurora, by building out a DAO, and various music projects and initiatives on Aurora along with other compatible apps in its ecosystem. For the past year, I’ve seen it done on Near’s NxM and have participated closely both as a musician and as a Community/Social Media Manager. I would love to replicate and scale these results on Aurora.

What Music On Aurora Will Offer


This DAO will serve as the governance tool for the global community we will build. To be established on either Sputnik or Astro, our DAO will enable decentralized voting, decision making and rewards disbursement. We will proceed with the creation as soon as this proposal is approved.

A Community.

Music On Aurora will have a vast community of musicians, singers, music producers, songwriters, etc. as its nexus: the backbone around which all our endeavours will be built. Telegram and Discord are powerful tools for building community participation and discussion. We will onboard and build out a thriving global community there, and beyond. Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Youtube will be engaged to showcase musical projects building on Aurora.

The Projects

Every month, we will aim to support the most Aurora-centric music projects by providing small funds. Musical projects like concerts, albums, EPs, interviews, etc. that use and showcase Aurora will be considered. For instance, musical concerts that will use NFT ticketing supported by any of the NFT marketplaces on Aurora will receive priority.

A Streaming Service:

We hope to later develop an NFT-backed music streaming service where, unlike traditional web 2 platforms, middlemen are eliminated and music makers and consumers can connect and relate directly. This project is a long-term plan.

We offer to solve the problem of Aurora’s near-absence from the Web 3 musical space with the above intiatives and more, creating a liaison between musical creatives and all the tools available on Aurora.

  • Create the Music On Aurora Telegram group of 400 musicians in one month and at least, 800 in 2 months
