Emanate ICO & Token Sale

Emanate is a music ecosystem that has been built on the EOS platform and is said to be self-governing in the way it functions. The ecosystem is based out of a primary function of conducting smart collaborations in creating music that keeps the platform alive. It also acts more than a streaming service which has been generic in the current time. It actually let the users purchase music and thus, opens ways for monetisation of projects. All the purchases made in the platform are based on tokens which makes it unique as well as highly secure from data loss. It adds up to the economy in the most stable way possible.


The major goal is to set up an ecosystem of music enthusiasts, creators and distributors to engage in a healthy monetisation of original music.

About the Project

The platform of Emanate is run and maintained by the DAO board which has a strong community backup. The music industry which is valued at 50 billion dollars is well handled by the powerful tools of the platform. It not only aids the users to get an amazing experience in music but also makes sure that the creators or artists are duly rewarded for their input in a project. The Emanate tokens are the base of trades in the ecosystem which is highly secure and safe from malfunctions. With due credits, the artists get revenues for their work without the inclusion of middlemen. There are over forty thousand artists in the platform with endless content for the users to choose from.
