New Integration: Audius
We're super excited to announce our new integration with Audius that allows song curators to earn money and clout on their Audius engagement. Audius users who have the Yup Extension will receive token rewards on the 'favorites' they give on Audius. Simply surf Audius as usual and favorite music that you want to rate positively on Yup. More information on this system below.
How Curator Rewards work
In its current form, the Yup Protocol rewards users in newly-minted YUP based on curation: when someone influential likes a piece of content across the web, the creator and previous curators earn YUP. A Twitter 'like', for example, is weighted based on the liker's influence, given a token value, and distribut
ed to the tweet's author and all the likers that came before. The same is applied to NFT art; curators earn YUP for being early on quality art on SuperRare. All they need to do is continue to use Audius as they normally do, but with the Yup Extension on.
Artist Highlight: Forhill
Forhill's smooth sound of nostalgia can be found on Audius. The Boston-based musician and producer made his mark on SoundCloud and YouTube in the RetroWave genre. His most recent project Luna was released in 2020, but our favorite Forhill track is "Closer". For those that want to follow what Forhill is curating, his Yup account can be found here.
Next Up: Creator and Owner Rewards
In its full form, NFT YUP Rewards means that the Yup Protocol will track on-chain ownership data associated with each NFT and link URLs to them. When those NFTs/URLs are liked or rated on Yup, the creator rewards will go into a pool that allows addresses identified as creators/owners to receive their pro-rata distribution of YUP rewards.
We're looking to continue to launch new integrations for curator rewards over the next month with as many credible artists, platforms, and integrations as possible. If you're at all looking to help us with this cause or participate as a contributor, please reach out to us here or join our discord.
