In this Interview, Chris chats with Trance DJ and producer Gareth Emery about his new venture Choon. Causing quite a stir in the industry, Choon is a blockchain based streaming service which aims to allow direct listener-to-artist relationships by cutting out all the industry middlemen. Benefits for artists include near real-time royalties, transparency in data, and smart contracts allowing the artist complete control of their works and splits. As a fan, you can create monetised playlists, know that your plays are directly supporting your favourite artists work, and have full confidence that you are supporting your favourite producers. Here we discuss how artists are paid, what are ‘notes’ and the roadmap for Choon over the next year. This is cutting-edge technology and here we chat to someone at the forefront.

I can’t open choon.co from my comp an iphone: Error 1016. How about you guys?
Sorry for late reply.
Working fine for me here using https://www.choon.co/
If you’re still having issues you should contact them via mail email@example.com
An 1016 Network Error usually means that DNS servers can’t resolve a name, it could have been a temporary issue or a problem with your own Internet settings but you will have more issues than just one site access then.
DNS Checker can help to check problems with potential DNS servers used to identify a web site, right now they report a problem in Montreal/Canada, could be a reason if your request is using this specific DNS.
Loving choon.co such a cool idea
Can someone tell me whats happen to choon.co i cant seem to longin or find the website ??
Hi there, sorry for very late reply
Choon.co no longer exist unfortunately, from what I could read, it went bankrupt due to a lack of investors not backing up the project as expected and the platform went down back in 2019 already.
Hi Tekalight sorry for the late reply buddy, Thats a shame I had a lot of my own tracks on there I want to try and get back but I don’t think thats going to be possible now, Well never mind.
Yeap, no luck then unfortunately.
Do you know AUDIUS ? That could be an alternative maybe.
Yes I am a member I signed up last year
