Fractionalized royalties (Royalty Shares )in music are a new and innovative way for artists to monetize their music by dividing the ownership of a song, album, or entire catalog into smaller, tradable units called "fractionalized shares." These shares can then be purchased by fans, investors, or anyone else who wants to support the artist.
When a song earns royalties, the proceeds are distributed to the owners of the fractionalized shares. This means that fans and investors can potentially earn money from the success of their favorite artists. The specific terms of royalty distribution vary depending on the platform or company offering fractionalized royalties.
Supporting favorite artists:
Fans can directly support their favorite artists by purchasing fractionalized shares fostering a more meaningful connection with their music.
Investing in the music industry:
Investors can gain exposure to the music industry by purchasing fractionalized shares of artists' catalogs, potentially benefiting from rising artist success.
Transparency and participation:
Fans and investors can track their royalty distributions and participate in artist-related events and initiatives.
