Viberate is a crowdsourced live music ecosystem and a blockchain-based marketplace where we're matching musicians with event organizers. We're listing profiles of over 120 thousand musicians, from superstars to garage bands.
This paper describes the crowdsourced booking and payment platform for the live music industry that will ultimately be scaled to all live creative engagements. Based on the Ethereum platform, it utilizes smart contracts that solve decades-old problems that live performers have with getting demand, determining their value/price, negotiating terms, executing agreements and getting paid. Its main pillars are an innovative database of millions of artist profiles, ranked according to social media popularity; a tokenized incentive program for musicians’ fans; a talent booking process; and a blockchain-based contract and payment system.
