Issue #3: Partnership Announcements, NFT Press & Public ROCKS Swap
Hello, fellow ROCKSTARS!
Lots of exciting news to announce today, so let's jump straight into it.
It's been a massive few days since our last update. The Guy J Royalty Right NFT auction got a ton of press and support from the music and crypto community. This clearly shows the potential with this new revenue stream for artists and the entirely new fan engagement created, as fans can now become a stakeholder in the financial success of a track on ROCKI. Making fans "active' instead of "passive" is a goal we have here at ROCKI.
Our first successful Music Royalty NFT auction was covered by all the prominent industry press leaders such as CoinDesk, Cointelegraph, Business Insider, AP, NASDAQ, Yahoo Finance, CBS, and many more. It was great to see this kind of response from the industry this early on!
Public ROCKS Token Swap.
Our highly anticipated public ROCKS Token Swap is happening tomorrow Wednesday on the Bounce.Finance platform 6 am PST / 2 pm UTC. We know many of you have been waiting for this, and we would like to thank everyone for their patience as we put this together. As we have mentioned before, we love the idea of having our community members being vested in the future of the platform, so here's your chance to join us in our mission to change the music streaming industry for the better!
Public ROCKS Token Swap: Date: 23rd of December at 6 am PST / 2 pm UTC. For full details on how to participate with easy to follow step by step directions, please visit our guide on Medium, which can be found here.

Announcing two major partnerships!
ROCKI is proud to announce a major partnership with Bounce. Bounce is a great decentralized auction protocol that we have been working closely with over the last few months, testing our Music NFT's auctions using their decentralized auction technology. Bounce will power the decentralized NFT auction section on ROCKI in the near future, so all NFT auctions and secondary market place engagements can happen directly on the ROCKI platform. More info here.
We’re also super excited to be announcing our partnership with ANKR. ANKR will support ROCKI in building out our node infrastructure to bring the buyer rights to royalty income from music. Using ANKR, ROCKI will have access to a robust and reliable managed infrastructure to ensure the necessary level of performance to run a decentralized streaming service without worrying about up-keeping or maintenance. More info here.
