What's New Today
This section will always contain something new so if you have read previous updates you may not want to read anything after the big update logo below. Everything after that contains updated statistics on the various platforms that we use to support independent music and other pertinent information that we think everyone should be aware of so will always be present.
If this is the first time you have read one of these updates then we recommend you read it all and decide what may be of benefit to you.
You can now add the SoundCloud link for your tracks directly on the Track page as well as adding credits.
Other platforms will be added in due course.
A major upgrade to Whaleshares went live late yesterday. If you are having trouble logging in then log in to your wallet and get your private posting key to use as they have now made the site more secure by only requiring stronger keys within the wallet itself.
The aim is and always will be to support independent musicians so please spread the word by telling your musician friends to sign up to Steemit (and Narrative - see below) and join the cause! The more people that join us the more we can help and the quicker we grow.
And remember that I will sponsor those who delegate regularly (via @steembasicincome), even if it is only a small amount, so please try to do so.

Why Musicians Should Enter These Competitions
There are some amazing competitions that members of the independent music community put a lot of effort into running on both Steemit & Whaleshares but they don't get the kind of support they deserve.
In most cases all you have to do is use a specific tag and maybe comment on their post to say you have entered and you have a chance of winning a mixture of $INDIE, AIRPLAY, STEEM & WLS & more!
Song Of The Day by @jhayehidio (Whaleshares)
Submit someone else's track each day and be in with a chance to win!
Blockchain Music Contest on Steemit
- Your song can be of any genre.
- Must be your song! If you are collaborating with someone we need to know.
- Make a post about your song/entry.
- Add a link to your post in their Discord contest room - blockchain-music-contest!
- Your entry must be posted within the Ten (10) day time period.

Whaleshares & Steemit Competitions

Aimed at creatives of all types here is another easy to enter competition where you can just use a tag on your normal dsound upload and have a chance to win!

- 4. Place your We-Talent / I-Talent post link in the comments section of the relevant post links above.
- 5. Provide your BTS wallet username in your post
- 6. Support by sharing the post to grow the competitions and help the community!
If you have a competition you would like added to this list please let me know on Discord.
Radio Evolved LIVE!
The catch up for last Sunday's show is now available here.
What Is Radio Evolved?
Radio Evolved is a new hybrid radio show which airs at 20:00 UTC on Sundays on YouTube.
Be sure to visit us on Discord to join in the lively chat during the show!
Radio Evolved Live is mixture of requested music and live vocal improvisation using instrumentals submitted via our Discord. The show is live on Sundays at 20:00 UTC (convert to your local time)
AIRPLAY Token Automation
AIRPLAY is now set up on Whaleshares and is listed on the Whaletoken Info Page.
So if you send AIRPLAY to the-jukebox via Btshares you should get the reward automatically now.
Please read the introduction post to find out more about AIRPLAY.
@jhayehidio introduced us to a new platform where you can tip other's blog posts. A few of us are currently testing it out and I'll do a video and more thorough post in due course if it looks useful for us all. The team behind this seem really proactive and have said they will added support for SoundCloud and Musicoin embedded players soon.
The basic idea with this platform is that any coin/token holder can apply to add their crypto to the platform to allow tipping of content. At the moment they have the BNTY token included.
I have created a channel in our Discord so we can support each other in the same way we do with Whaleshares.
If you want to join us and give it a go then please help either @jhayehidio or ACR out by using one of our referral links:
Get Sponsored For Delegating And Receive UPVOTES FOR LIFE!
You will not automatically get a sponsorship if you delegate but if you delegate frequently (the amount does not influence our decision) then you are more likely to get sponsored.
Narrative - A Rival To Steemit or Complimentary?
Some of us now have access to the alpha version and it looks very interesting. You can bid for a "niche", a subject that you would like to "own" for a year, and you get a percentage of all earnings from that niche.
I have successfully secured the "Musicians" niche and will be using this as another way to help independent musicians so I encourage you to sign up via the link below so you are ready as soon as it launches.
You can use my referral link to put your name down for the next 1000 people to be allowed access HERE.
