Audius

Audius' mission is to create a fully decentralized community of artists, developers, and listeners collaborating to share and defend the world's music.

Audius is a company that has developed a platform designed for musicians that are both signed or unsigned to labels. The company was founded by Forrest Browning, Ranidu Lankage, and Roneil Rumburg in 2018, in San Francisco, California, United States.

The platform is designed to generate time-stamped records for creative works to register assets to the Audius network. The network is decentralized and secured by blockchain technology to protect and verify metadata attributions. Audius allows users to discover new content that can be verified through authenticity, and its system of attribution.
