Hello Satoshi Club! We are happy to announce our AMA session with Melos.Studio! Welcome to Satoshi Club

@yalulin welcome to Satoshi Club

Yalu Lin:
Hello!

Thank you for having me here.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
It’s a pleasure

How are you today?

Yalu Lin:
I am good. thank you
wish you all well also.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Sure! We are so excited to have you here today.

Yalu Lin:

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Let’s go

Yalu Lin:
Let’s go.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
And we will start with intro!

Yalu Lin:
Yes yes.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Could you please introduce yourself and tell us more about Melos.Studio

Yalu Lin:
Yalu, I first crypto invest in 2017.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
As always! We never change

Yalu Lin:
Joined from the very beginning of Machi X in 2019. Machi X started as a music copyright marketplace ecosystem where fans, collectors, and patrons can buy and sell music copyrights. We listed 59 songs from Golden Melody Award-winning artists. These are equivalent to Grammy’s awards in Mandarin Chinese music industry. One of the songs was listed on Binance DEX. Machi X is also one of the recognized project in https://ethereum.org/en/community/

I was in charge of the operations dept and handling song IP purchasing, legal, and etc. Co-op directly with music creators, singers and their agents.
Machi X pivoted into a DAO, focusing on NFT art curation and helping bringing artists to crypto.
This is where learnt a lot about music industry and blockchain application.

Later i was discussing with my friend Jim who has been developer for decades, and a musician for his entire life time, so we thought we can do another music project, Melos. Jim is also the co-founder of Melos.

Melos is the brand new web3 ecosystem for music creation.

We, humans, are just highly emotionally attached to music.

We are builiding an ecosystem where people can enjoin music creation with more fairness, more value, and more fun. We are providing tools for poeple to collaberate in music creation, where each profit can be share in all creations.

And we are doing this through NFTs.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
I think everyone does

Yalu Lin:
Ya, we used music/tunes to express our emotions before we have languages.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
As I know even j can create music content on your platform! And that’s perfect! You inspire people

Yalu Lin:
Thank you

Mary | Satoshi Club:
How big us your team? Who work with you?

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
Great background, Yalu. Thank you for the great intro.

Mary | Satoshi Club:

Yalu Lin:
At this point, we are total of 12 people
mostly are devs. 4 in market and ops, 2 in product design

We are also collaborating with friends from time to time so we can operate more events

~tada~

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Pretty big team

Yalu Lin:
Not bad, and still very busy.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
So, is your platform fully operational now?

Yalu Lin:
Not yet. the official launch is in September.

We are fine-tuning the some final touch, such as crypto and fiat payment etc.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Gotcha! We will wait for this! And I am going to create Mary song there

Yalu Lin:
That will be awesome

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Thank you for your intro!

Are you ready for the first part of our AMA with the questions from our community?

Luis Merino

Yalu Lin:
Sure thing.

Let’s go!

Yalu Lin:

Q1 from Telegram user @orlemys
Melos.Studio has partnered with iconic American R&B artist Trey Songz for the platform’s first music NFT, set to release today 31st of August. Would you kindly tell us more about the specifics of this partnership? Is this a long-term partnership, do you have a set amount of NFTs you will release with him? Further, how is the production of the music NFTs done? Is it recorded by the artist as a regular song and then made into an NFT, or are there other exclusive steps to take? How will it be sold?

Yalu Lin:
Ohoh oh yeah, it is on sale RIGHT NOW
https://www.binance.com/en/nft/blindBox/detail?productId=127630597802689536

Trey Songz is the king of R&B. He is a singer, a songwriter, a record producer and an actor. He has won the best Male R&B Artist BET Awards and three times Grammy nominated. He has sold over 25 million records

This is brand new music we worked with Trey Songz, as to promote Melos.Studio’s vision of co-creation.
They are sold on Binance NFT as with Mystery Box

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Yes, i actually love his songs

Yalu Lin:
within the purchases, there will be opportunity to have zoom calls with him and the once-in-a-lifetime music co-creation with Trey. What’s more, all the buyers can have the opportunity to share $100,000 cash awards and chance to get the genesis mining NFTs of Melos! and this is the very FIRST Music & Art Mystery Box on Binance NFT.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Even zoom calls? That’s incredible!

Yalu Lin:
Exactly!

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
OMG! Lovely.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
You rock, guys

Yalu Lin:
Rock and roll.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
So, Satoshiclubbers, pay attention to this event

you can get a lot of bonuses here!

Yalu Lin:

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Thank you for your answers! Ready to proceed?

Yalu Lin:
Yeah!

Q2 from Telegram user @Jonahapagu
Melos is planning to set up an incubator to assist the creation of music, formation of Virtual Band, and music studio. This is to support musicians and create more music festivals,… So how will this incubator work, what features do you plan to implement in this incubator, how will virtual bands be formed and operated in Melos and what kind of music studio do you plan to create…..

Yalu Lin:
Love this question and thank you for this.

Let me start by this….

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
Take your time

Yalu Lin:
We took another look at NFTs and was thinking NFT shouldn’t be just a storage of medium. it really should be more, so we are using NFT as proof of creation, or proof of co-creation.

For example, musician Alice mints her piano tune as G0 NFT, Bob see this, buys it and then add his guitar to mint as G1 NFT, Fred buys and add his drum to mint as G2 NFT….
Whenever there is a sales made, this creator and creation info is reacorded in the DNA of our nfts. so the profits can be traced and shared to all of them.

Then we also have 1. a more fair profit sharing system 2. a create-to-earn ecosystem 3. interactive collectible 4. a new application of NFT and new relationships between artist, fans, and collaborators.

The ecosystem is going to be filled with music ideas, inspirations…

We are also providing tools so that you can create music online by yourself as a music newbie or if you are an music expert.

And you want to create music or with others in different timezone or different places. Virtualband is our next generation tool.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
What if Bob strongly disagrees with what Alice added and thinks his music was spoiled? Can he complain?

Yalu Lin:
Virtualband will alow users to make music jam as as easy as using google docs. You will also be able to discuss the music piece online like clubhouse, leave notes for others and more. it is going to be fun creating music on Melos.

Well, there is social chat room for them to discuss too.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
This is crazy! I love it

Yalu Lin:
So with Melos, to enjoy music, we can do more than just listen. We can all participate in the music creation process and be rewarded

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
And if they don’t reach an agreement?

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Awesome idea and i want to see your platform to go live

It’s a question

Yalu Lin:
Well, if the NFT is sold, it is an item for others to work with
and Alice already made money on it

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Gotcha

Thank you for your answers! Ready to go to the next question?

Yalu Lin:
Yes yes.

Q3 from Telegram user @alice_wonderland12
Melos NFTs show who composited them and all the people that owned the NFT before. So if I buy an NFT of this type, there is no way I could erase my trace from the NFT history? What information about the previous owners is saved, and how can their privacy be preserved?

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Yalu Lin:
The work can stil be edited if not minted.

But once it is minted on blockchain, they are on public ledger.

Sure you can unlist the NFT from marketplace before it is sold. that may also be less visible to others.

Btw, we just broke Binance NFT record, 30,000 NFTs sold within 10 min.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
I see that it is a different kind of NFTs

it’s not about privacy, but it’s more about copyright

Wow, congratulations! So, everything sold?

Yalu Lin:
We call them interactive collectible.

Not yet, the sales is still going strong.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
And it’s their beauty!

Yalu Lin:
We can still get them.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Satoshiclubbers! Don’t be late

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Yalu Lin:

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Thank you for your answers! Ready to jump to the next question?

Yalu Lin:
I am, thank you.

Q4 from Telegram user @victorogb
An the impressive tech of Melos ecosystem is a function called “More Salt to Music” operation. With this process, Melos plans to hide crypto cash inside MusicBlocks, in order for fans world over to be part of the promotion of MusicBlock NFTs. Without a doubt, this feature is awesome, as it builds a strong bond for music and it’s NFT collections. Can you carefully elaborate further, how will this feature be implemented, would fans be compelled to carryout specific mining operations for a share of these crypto cash, and how often will such operations take place? Also, since this operation has direct correlation with “NFT Forging” as offered on Melos, can you briefly talk on this?

Yalu Lin:
This is some easter eggs game we can play within our community.

This may be easier to explain with the format of our own marketplace blindbox.

The concept of our blindbox is that we can slice a song into pieces, publish them and allow the fan to play a collection game.

The winning colllector can then merge them back into the orginal song.

The winner can be provided with some rewards such as token, NFT or let this song be named under winners’ name.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Haha

so if i want to have full song i need to collect several NFTs, right?

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
Like a puzzle

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Wow!

Yalu Lin:
Like a puzzle.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
I want a song with my name

Yalu Lin:
Just some new concept to play with music.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Circles Luis

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Haha

Mary | Satoshi Club:
I love this concept and i am sure your community will be never bored

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Thank you for your answers! Ready to go to the next question?

Yalu Lin:
Rock it rock it.

Q5 from Telegram user @Asela1112
As I understood, MELOS STUDIO mainly focused on NFTs without a native token. What is the reason of being relied on NFTs without your own currency? Do you think, NFTs will be adequate for a massive exposure in Crypto Sphere? But Most NFT platforms use a native token to gain a mass adoption since the native tokens help to grow more trades within ecosystem. So don’t you have intentions to create a token like $MELOS instead of being depend on other currencies like BUSD?

Yalu Lin:
Well, yes, we are still working on our distribution of Melos DAO governance token. The final announcement about this will come out later.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Yalu Lin:
So don’t be scammed if anybody offers you the token now.

We are offering NFTs first, on Binance NFT right now: https://www.binance.com/en/nft/blindBox/detail?productId=127630597802689536 (

)

And yes, you are also correct, our focus is to provide more open, more valuable and possibly more fairness approach to music creations, so we are trying to plan carefully on how the token can help.

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Do you plan any token sales?

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
It’s not that expensive… SatoshiClubbers, what are you waiting for?

Yalu Lin:
Planning

Yalu Lin:
Don’t wait, just go.

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:
How are you going to distribute them?

Mary | Satoshi Club:
Oh, it’s a great hint!

Luis Merino

| Satoshi Club:

Yalu Lin:
Yes yes.

Q6 from Telegram User @ItsMelissa3
You mentioned that If we want to participate in the construction of Melos community, no matter what operational advantages we have, now we can apply for the Melos Angle. What is the Melos Angle? Where can we apply? How many spots are available? How will the participants be selected? When will the results be announced?

In our DAO governance, there are 3 major sections: Creation: any topics related to creation of NFT on Melos. Organization: helping with governance, tech developments. Expansion: help organizing events in telegram and discord channels, or helping promoting Melos to others. We want Melos Angels to help us develop on these sections.

Part 2 — live questions from the Telegram community

Q1 from Telegram user @Newton7Gm
What are the important social media links to follow the announcement of your projects?

Yalu Lin:
Twitter: https://twitter.com/melos_studio
Telegram: http://t.me/melosstudiodao
Discord: http://discord.gg/Wg7Quep8zW
Medium: https://melosstudio.medium.com/

please do follow them, and thank you

Q2 from Telegram user @yellowchamp
How do you consider non-musician in Melos Studio? Do you have any workshop and musician that can teach to non-musician that want to explore more in your platform?

Yalu Lin:
Yes, in Melos Workshop, there is a tool. an AI assistant that we call Metis. that can help you complete a song even if you insert only a few music notes.

This way, even music newbies can create music.

To be honest, i am not so much of a music creator as my co-founder Jim. I’ve learnt to play with music with Metis. it’s been fun and exciting.

Btw, Jim has been a musician his whole life and he is also a very senior developer also.

Q3 from Telegram user @Emidm28
Today (August 31th), the Melos’ first music NFT mystery box in association with singer Trey Songz will be released. Where can we buy that mystery box? Do we have to register in advance somewhere to be able to buy it? What will be the content of those mystery boxes?

Yalu Lin:
It is here on Binance NFT. just register as Binance user and you will be able to purchase. simple

https://www.binance.com/en/nft/blindBox/detail?productId=127630597802689536

Q4 from Telegram user @EmnKing
While the Melos community aims to promote usage and value of MusicBlock NFTs, the Melos DAO community members are responsible for autonomous community governance, such as proposals, organizing votes, and implementation; seek cooperation, continue to expand the community, and maintain fair trades of MusicBlock NFTs; and incentivize creator, collectors to continue to create, forge and trade MusicBlock NFTs. This is nice for members of the community. Is there any ranking to this membership? If there is a ranking, what are the needed criteria for one to ranked to a particular class? Is there a maximum vote for a member? If there is no maximum vote, how do you plan on controlling the voting power of users despite the autonomous system of Melos?

Yalu Lin:
Yes, there are going to be 5 different membership levels to participate in the DAO governance.

As mentioned earlier, there are 3 different sections for DAO voting, so the max voting weight and voting numbers are according the both the DAO topic sections and the different membership levels.

In our plan, Melos is a dao gov token for votes and a utility token for accessing functions on Melos platform.

Q5 from Telegram user @jazzmusic2000
Will the NFTs that are created in Melos.Studio only be available in your NFT marketplace? Or will their creators have the opportunity to market them on other platforms?

Yalu Lin:
Yes, in long term, we want to incubate musicians from our own platform and promote them to other platforms, to share our success.

This is music, should be promoted everywhere.

Q6 from Telegram user @shardy35
Where can I buy your tokens now, what are your current contracts address and how can I buy them and what are the benefits?

Yalu Lin:
Token not for sale yet… but the trey Songz NFT on Binance https://www.binance.com/en/nft/blindBox/detail?productId=127630597802689536

They can participate in NFT staking and mine Melos tokens later on

So go buy now.

And every

NFT in the binance NFT sales can be used in NFT staking.

EVERY one of them.

Q7 from Telegram user @Nayemshekh
Did you know that Corona Viruses( Covid-19) has had a huge impact on the crypto market? How can you maintain team performance during this pandemic?????

Yalu Lin:
This is actually one of inspiration for Melos, we still want to co-work with other musicians while we cannot travel during pandemic.

Musicians have held up this energy to build music and now it is time

Q8 from Telegram user @iam12312
I see that for every Melos NFT Trading, some portion of the Transaction value will be given to Previous Creators,
Why is it so?
Is there other benefits for Creators on the platform?

Yalu Lin:
This is to share the co-creation energy with previous creator.

So we can form a new co-creation ecosystem.

Musicians work with musicians and support each other.

Creators can gain more direct and more open value on Melos platform.

And can also provide never-seen interactive collectibles to their fans.

Q9 from Telegram user @cenkkargin0666
Malicious users or artists can steal ideas or music that do not belong to them and upload them to your platform. How does Melos Studio go about preventing such playing or copying ideas? Do you pass any checks or audits of incoming content before it is published? What are you doing to publish original content?

Yalu Lin:
Yes, there are processes implemented to avoid this.

And there will be punishment for uploading/minting infringement contents.

Q10 from Telegram user @Pratze
I’m checking your staking program but its still not work for now, can you give an explanation? how will your stake system and what are the benefits stake in there?

Yalu Lin:
This feature is still under development and will be audited before launch.

You can stake and mine Melos token.
