END of the European Union: Marine LePen Emanuel Macron AKA Mr. Macaroni

Realize for a moment how everyone depends on money, and then realize how sick that really is. Did you ever dream of a world where people had access to food, clean water without FLUORIDE, fruits, vegetables, seeds, storage, oh wait… life takes a lot of work, but still! C’mon! If your Father had planted 50 trees for you, would you not be a wealthy man of produce? Then, you would realize, money is not the answer, so, therefore, also is governance not the answer, because government naturally tries to suck the produce off of the people and transfer it into the hands of the governing, spending money on nothing but death and destruction! What a scam the Euro really is. All forms of money are a scam, but some are less of a scam than others. Bitcoin is less of a scam. With the Yellow Vest protests and the introduction of bitcoin into Tobbacconist shops in France, when better is the time to reject the concept of government controlled currency?

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-01-17/marine-le-pen-says-leaving-euro-no-longer-priority

France doesn’t need to leave the Euro, because the Euro is bullshit. What does it really do? Can it feasibly collect taxes? Does it spend more than it should? Does it provide any real form of protection? Does it defend the rights of humans to defend themselves with weapons? No, no, no, no, no, no, and no. So, what the fuck is it good for? Do you believe Google will give this post any visibility in the search engine? No, so what does it matter?

You would be be surprised how much your words matter!

Still! Imagine what would happen if France rejected the Euro for bitcoin? Just imagine! What would happen to the Euro? Why can’t the Yellow Vests organize around cryptocurrency? Is this a cry for help? Because God gave it to you right there, and the inventor didn’t ask for anything. Embrace Bitcoin today! Our Freedom awaits!

SonIQ – Let Freedom Sing

SonIQ – Let Freedom Sing

Toward a Blockchain Music Market-Play 

Parker Emmerson | myblogband.com

ABSTRACT

The independent music talent pool is richer than ever, but its pockets are empty. Corporate middle-men and streaming, ad-based platforms have monopolized the marketplace by enabling steals of songs,  and in the process depriving talented independent artists as well as superstars major earning potential. We think the contemporary music economy needs to change in order for music cultures and subcultures to flourish. It needs to adopt innovative ways of bringing revenue directly to musicians to empower and incentivize them to produce better, faster, stronger, keeping our music industry alive and thriving. The patented innovation we propose is the integration of our media-oriented cryptocurrency, SonIQ, into our patented online social network for musicians, MyBlogBand (US20100326256 A1, US8487173 B2, US8962964 B2), to allow for seamless licensing, payment, distribution, and collaboration of independent music, media and even artificial intelligence.

INTRODUCTION

Independent music has gained enormous steam since the advent of the internet. In recent years, listeners have grown jaded with radio’s limited, formulaic offerings and turned to the web for free or cheap access to raw, talented musicians all over the map. But whether this buffet of independent music can outlast listeners’ appetites depends on indie artists actually making a good living from their popularity, which internet platforms haven’t engendered so far. Lacking profits, artists have been resorting to grueling tours, like troubadours of olden days.

An argument for cheapening the music industry is that consumers are accustomed to not pay, and consumers are the boss. But because the state of things is not sustainable, whoever provides a viable alternative first will become a disruptive pioneer and a champion of democracy.  We live in a time in which the importance of sustainability is more apparent and appealing than ever. We think cryptocurrency can be seamlessly integrated into the user experience and eventually prove its own value as consumers see music quality and availability improve through the use of this payment system. 

MyBlogBand will be a patented, custom-tailored cryptocurrency social network for multimedia artists that will let them prove their contributions to media as well as license media access and return ownership of content as access to a library of data. This feature is distinct from iTunes, Spotify, Pandora and other streaming music services: iTunes only allows limited access to purchased media by authorized devices with non-transferable license. The others don’t grant ownership of content, limit accessible content types to music and limit themselves to popular, syndicated artists, making it harder to discover new artists and indie musicians.

BACKGROUND/PROBLEM STATEMENT

1) Artists have a hard time quickly and efficiently distributing their content and receiving adequate payment. Too much money is given to middlemen, and only a few artists dominate the heard music. We need to rectify the situation so independent music scenes can thrive.

2) Time-stamping and proof of authorship.

3) Fast and easy distribution of payments for content.

SOLUTION

1. MyBlogBand: MyBlogband is committed to honoring the freedom and trust of musicians and listeners worldwide by re-investing in small and indie artists, and protecting the diversity, integrity and accessibility of the global music library for listeners. With the help of SonIQ, Blogband wants to ensure trust that every artist will get paid well as they deserve, that their music will be accessible and affordable, and that there will be privacy all around. Blogband enables a simple, direct and transparent payout structure using SonIQ in which indie rates can be the same as  those of big artists. Money goes directly to the artist rather than trickling down through platforms or labels. Artists get bigger per-stream royalty rates and the option to offer easy paid downloads, to sell CDs and monetize other artist products, and to monetize donations through fan-funding platforms similar to those of Patreon.

Myblogband LLC has been around since 2007 and was re-branded as Blogband LLC once the patent was awarded (US8487173). We have a strong IP asset package marketed by a top IP asset attorney and entrepreneur – but we are still young and growing. Our vision for establishing IP and solid business growth involves media licensing and integrating Bitcoin. In addition, we are seeking interested parties who would like to invest in making Blogband a real challenge to the status quo of music distribution platforms and the establishment music industry. Social network for musicians to collaborate online in a band that they start or join. Distributed payments to contributors over a custom-tailored cryptocurrency network — SonIQ — that uses licensing.

a) Claims of the social media music network.

b) Mechanics of the licensing smart contracts.

c) Band members input their cryptocurrency addresses and automatically receive payment for their percentage contribution to a song upon initial sale of the song through the platform and all subsequent copies generated through sending.

2. A Digital Media Wallet on MyBlogBand will allow licensing via SonIQ, a custom-tailored cryptocurrency for the social media framework. The idea here is to use the cryptocurrency styled mining network to facilitate the licensing of media, be it video, audio or visual. Licenses to access media would be generated using the Bitcoin network in the SonIQ embodiment over a social media framework of MyBlogBand, an idea currently addressed in my patent-pending CIP application. It could also license content through the cryptocurrency network node with individual licenses to media stored on a Cloud server.

What is a Bitcoin network node? A Bitcoin network node is a record of all Bitcoin transactions that have taken place that is current and up-to-date with the current issuance of all Bitcoins and transactions of all Bitcoins. The same is true for a node of any current cryptocurrency. This idea of a node is essential to the concept of a crypto currency or cryptographic ledger technology. People who operate computers that are used to solve the encryption algorithm that issues crypto-currencies (Bitcoin, Litecoin, etc.) are referred to as miners, and it is their job to see to it that Bitcoins are issued within the constraints of the open source software project. Bitcoins are entries into the distributed, cryptographically protected ledger that indicate a positive balance located at a cryptographically protected address. Bitcoin addresses are generated by operating a Bitcoin node and indicating that one would be able to accept Bitcoins when they are sent to a particular string of numbers that was generated within the constraints of the Bitcoin software protocol.

What is a Bitcoin wallet? A Bitcoin wallet is a positive balance located at a Bitcoin address. Bitcoin wallets are either Cloud based or stored on a hard drive. Access is granted to a Bitcoin wallet/address when a Bitcoin node has the correct private, cryptographic key (set of numbers) to send Bitcoins from that respective address.

How are licenses to media contained and protected in this embodiment? Given an individual piece of media, for example a song, entitled “Song 1,” authorization to play the song, copy the song, transfer the song or sell the song would be granted

using a cryptographic key issued by a mining network such as the Bitcoin network/protocol. A user’s online account would be credited with access to the media

over a suite of different hardware/software platforms that have access to this data stored on “the Cloud.” Cryptographic keys that grant access to the media would be stored on the Cloud and all the user would have to do is log into their account. Users could transfer those cryptographic keys to be stored locally on hardware. A “wallet” software is used to organize the cryptographic keys that grant access to data, therefore turning it to consumable media. The wallet organizes the data+cryptographic keys as a cryptocurrency node on the cryptocurrency network in a Graphic User Interface such that it is easily accessible through a browser. In this embodiment, the keys are still held on the Cloud, so the media is accessible wherever the data is available so long as the user is logged into his Cloud account. The cryptocurrency, distributed ledger technology is simply used to maintain the licenses to transform data into media.

How are media licenses transferred from one person to another? By means of access to the Cloud account, the user may transfer these licenses using a website or by having his local Media Wallet transfer the licenses from the Cloud server to another wallet or Cloud account. Any format of media may be transferred.

How do licenses operate in conjunction with data to grant access to content? A cryptocurrency, or distributed ledger technology (synonymous), works with a public address and a private key. A decentralized encrypting network (like the Bitcoin network) maintains the history of all transfers/transactions that take place. Data is downloaded from many different distributors and platforms, with the downloading/receiving of data, licenses to access the content are also conferred to a public address, the private keys to which are held on a Cloud server or local disk. All of this is made available to the user through their Media Wallet.

How is content finally delivered to the end user? Once the user has the data, the private key that grants access to the data or balance, which is enshrined by the Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency network at a particular address also grants access to the data, thereby turning it into media, because a centralized or distributed database of media files verifies the presence of the correct keys at the cryptocurrency node through either proof of stake (proof that there is the presence of the key) or transfer of the key one time per media usage to the owner’s own wallet.

3. Licensing media as granted access to a host of media stored on a Cloud server.

The owner of a private key that corresponds to the correct respective value on a cryptocurrency network is also granted access to a subscription style service of media.

4. Licensing media content through a Bitcoin network node with individual licenses to

particular pieces of media stored on a local server/computer/hard-drive/wallet.

Data is downloaded and locally stored licenses (private keys) grant access. The private

keys can be transferred from one address to another address on a cryptocurrency

network or the balance located at an address that signifies access to the data can be

sent to another address, and thus access to the media is conferred that way.

5. Licensing media content through a Bitcoin network node with individual licenses to a host of media stored locally.

6. A custom-tailored cryptocurrency — SonIQ — for the express purpose of granting media licensing on the basis of distributed, cryptographic ledger technology. A wallet that can organize and categorize different kinds of licenses to different kinds of media using a multitude of cryptocurrency platforms including the cryptocurrency platform that has been custom-tailored to make media licensing easier. Cryptographic network- mining network (present, existing, or novel and tailored). . Further, we hope to allow for the tokenization of media content through a digital media crypto-wallet, so that virtual items in games can be included in the ownable content transferable over a blockchain. Virtual weapons, clothing, items, cars, or any acquirable object in a video or computer game can be tokenized, held, synced, and transferred between games, users and players for different devices, terminals, consoles or games for different purposes.

7. We want to be adaptable to future technologies, so our eye is also on integrating AI structures. Artificial intelligence robots can integrate different robot features, buy and trade different parts of themselves as assets.

Basic terms:

License node – An up-to-date record of the presence of all licenses.

Direct send – The transfer of both the data for media and the cryptographic token by which the data is allowed to be media.

License authorization key – Generated by the network of the custom cryptographic,

distributed ledger/currency when a content owner/provider/generator receives payment via Bitcoin, the aforementioned custom currency or other currency.

Media Wallet – a cryptocurrency wallet that contains access keys to different kinds of data.

License for different purposes: right to perform the song, right to play the song in a venue, right to copy the song, right to sell the song, right to distribute the song.

About Blogband

When my High School band, The Reckless Clinic was about to break up and go to college, I wanted us to keep collaborating, so we gave birth to Myblogband.com in 2007, a patented social network for musicians to collaborate online. Over the next years, I worked on getting a patent, knowing how hard it is to develop a web company from scratch. Over the years, I learned more about the internet, web design and web functionality. Now, we have Myblogband.com and the intellectual property asset package behind it. Rebranded under Blogband LLC, the next wave of the future is the creating of online, real bands by real, human musicians in a virtual band workspace through Blogband LLC’s patented technology. Future patents and patented technologies are coming. Join us today at http://www.myblogband.com

Tutorial

MyBlogBand.com is a great way for musicians to connect to other musicians online and exchange music and ideas. It is also a great way for listeners to discover new bands and musicians they might like as they can search for bands and musicians by genre. Several bands and musicians are featured on the home page, and the most played songs are listed in on the home page.

Registration

To participate in MyBlogBand.com, a user must register. To register, a user must enter a username, email and password. If the username or email are already in use, the user must pick another. Once registered, the user is logged in and can post comments to a band page. They also may continue on to become musicians. Any registered user can post comments on the band profile page.

Musicians

Musicians can fill out a profile, post pictures and tracks for others to listen to. Any of this can be edited at any time by logging in. Musicians may also participate in bands by starting a band and inviting other musicians to join, or auditioning for one of the many bands already on the site. To log in, enter your username and password in the log in boxes at the left hand column. If you’ve forgotten your password, you may click on “email me my password” and your password will be mailed to your email address. Once logged in, the log in box goes away, and a menu with various options appears in the left hand column. If you did not create a musician profile when you registered, you can create one now. If you have already created a musicians profile, you can view your profile by clicking on “view profile”. You can make changes to or delete your profile by clicking on “edit my profile”. It is important to choose genres that represent your music, as that will help others with similar interests find you. It is also important to choose instruments that you play, the amount of time you have been playing that instrument, and the state you live in as this information will be used by other musicians on the site to find you.

You can change your password by clicking on the “change my password” link in the left hand column. You can add and remove images from your image gallery by clicking on “manage my images”. Images are uploaded by selecting a local file using the “Browse” button and then clicking “Upload”. Only jpeg images should be uploaded. Images can be reordered by using the pulldown boxes next to each image and selecting which position you would like that image to occupy. The first image is used as the thumbnail image for your musicians profile page, so choose an image that you like. You can add and remove tracks from your profile by clicking on the “manage my tracks” link. Tracks can be uploaded by selecting the file using the “Browse” button and then clicking on the “Upload” button. Depending on the type of connection you have, it may take several minutes to upload a track. Do not click on anything else while a track is uploading. Only MP3 tracks will be playable by the online player. Tracks must be named before they are uploaded.

Bands

Musicians can participate in bands in several ways. A musician may start a band. A band has a profile very similar to the musician profile. It is important to choose genres that are representative of this band so other musicians and listeners can find the band. Bands also have image galleries that work identically to the Musician image gallery described above. Once a musician creates a band, they can invite other musicians to join the band by searching for them using the “Musicians” menu item at the top of the page.

If you have at least one band, and the musician is not in that band, a link will show up on that musicians profile page called “invite this musician to join your band”. This will open a page where you select the band that you want to invite them to join and an optional message. An email will be sent to the invited musician. They can log in and accept your invitation. Band members should create at least one song that is representative of the band. This is done by clicking on the band name in the left hand column and then clicking on “manage band music”. This will open a page where any current songs are listed, and a link to add a new song is available. Add a new song by clicking on the “add a new song” link and filling in a title and optional description. Once the song is created, tracks can be uploaded for this song. A song may have many tracks as the song develops and new parts are added. Tracks are added by clicking on the “tracks” link under the song on the “manage band music” page. Select a local file using the “Browse” button and then click “Upload”. Please wait for the upload to complete as it may take some time depending on the type of internet connection you have. The first track uploaded becomes the “public” track for this song and is the one that shows up on the band profile page for this song. You can add notes for this track so that others know what the track is. You can make this a “private” track so that only other band members can see it, and you can decide if you want to make it downloadable by others.

As more tracks are uploaded, you can decide which one is the “public” track. For instance, if you add a guitar solo to the song, you can upload a mix that includes this solo and make that the “public” track. Any musician can audition for any band that they are not already in. To do this, find a band using the “Bands” menu item at the top of the page, and click on the “audition for this band” link. This will allow you to upload a track for a song. The band members will get an email. A band member can log in, find the band and song that the musician has auditioned for, and listen to the track. The band members can keep the track or delete it. If they like the musician, they can invite them to join the band by clicking on their name and clicking on “invite this musician to join your band” on the profile page as described above.
