Why It’s Important
Conventional record companies are infamous for their inflated use of middlemen and unethical compensation. The process becomes decentralised when Web3 is included, enabling fairer artist rewards and enhanced creator-label interactions. The broad knowledge of Patrick Moxey can be quite helpful in setting up the foundation for Web3-powered music companies.
