According to PAX Economics, blockchain-based karaoke DApp SOMESING officially released its service on the ICON Mainnet after 6 months of beta testing. Since going live 24 hours ago, the DApp has already generated over 21,000 transactions with its own SSX token.
The beta testing period on the ICON TestNet allowed the team to receive valuable feedback and work on enhancing user experience, enabling them to improve functions and stabilize services ahead of official launch. According to CEO and founder Heuibae Kim, the app recorded more than 150,000 downloads, 70,000 active users and more than 3,000 daily active users during that time.
Earlier in July, the team also won 1st place in Block Battles Season 2, a blockchain survival television show, exemplifying the service as a real-life use case of blockchain technology.
As the world’s first karaoke app on the blockchain, SOMESING aims to become a “social music network” where anyone who loves songs can be rewarded for their contribution. “We want to make our app simple for every user, even if they don’t know much about blockchain,” said Kim. “We will strive to upgrade the service based on user feedback, so that everyone can easily use and enjoy the app.”
Future plans after the release of the official version are already in the works. “Through partnerships with online and offline agencies and various broadcasting and entertainment businesses, we will provide more opportunities to users to enter the diverse music scene and to new singers to prove their songs with the public,” said Kim. “In the end, this will bring diversification to the music market.”
Kim predicted continuous transformation as online music content that users can directly participate in and enjoy continuously expands and diversifies. “My team and I would like to lead a great transformation of the digital ecosystem for music,” he said.
