Just joined @resonatecoop, a streaming music service formed as a multi-stakeholder #platformCoop. Free for artists to join and only $5 for listener-members. They use a model called #stream2own: listen nine times and you own the track. Funds go directly from listener to artist.
Hope others on #SocialCoop are aware of this service. I can imagine a democratic, musician-owned service like this would be great for artists, if it catches on.
@KcTerry I love Resonate. Great reminder that I should be listening to it right now. Will do.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
