Ujo Music is a cryptocurrency platform that lets artists create, publish, license and distribute music and get compensated for it.

Ujo Music is a cryptocurrency platform founded by Jesse Grushack that lets artists create, publish, license and distribute music and get compensated for it under the Ethereum network. The platform features decentralized file storage, constellate for metadata, persistent identity, and automatic royalty payments.

Ujo Music began as a project within a startup incubator focused on building projects around the Ethereum blockchain called ConsenSys. The first Ujo Music prototype was built to be used by Imogen heap, a famous British singer/songwriter. The Ujo Music platform was used to license Heap's music under different terms such as permanent download, stream, stems (songs for remixing), and sync rights (for advertising purposes).
