Musicoin is created for both musicians and listeners. Its musical economy empowers listeners to freely participate via various value-added services that it has built and is actively building on top of the platform. Moreover, the Musicoin Blockchain ensures each musician receives the most competitive industry compensation, instantly and automatically, for each stream of music.

On February 27, Musicoin has announced that it plans to upgrade with blockchain hard fork, aiming to support enhanced security and more efficient transactions. The hard fork will be triggered at block 2,222,222, which should be released approximately by the end of March.

Once enabled, the hard fork should both reduce risks of replay attacks and enable users to securely store their assets with the Ledger Nano S and Trezor hard wallets and MyEtherWallet.

Our blockchain team has developed a perfect plan for this hard fork to enhance the infrastructure of the whole MUSIC economy. Following our 1.0 and 2.0 releases, this upgrade would mark a new start to wider adoption of this currency and MUSIC economy.

Blockchain-based New Zealand-based research firm Brave New Coin (BNC) has unveiled a new system for measuring the mood of the Bitcoin community based on Twitter messages.

According to BNC, the new Twitter Sentiment rating system analyzes over 34 million BTC-related Twitter posts each week. The company uses artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that look for records containing the words bitcoin, $ BTC and BTC and others.

BNC notes that user sentiment continues to be a “significant” factor in the price and dynamics of digital assets, and a new technique has been developed to track these sentiments. According to the BNC, it took 18 months to launch the Bitcoin Twitter Sentiment. The data obtained is divided into seven categories - Opinion, Technical Information, Inside the Network, Advertising, Bots, Macros and Hacking.

For the week ending January 17, the most common entries were in the Opinion category - their number was 30.42% of all data received. In second place was the category Technical Information, and in third inside the network (includes information on mining and hashrate).

BNC spokeswoman Pierre Ansaldi said that during the first quarter of this year, the company will also launch community sentiment analysis tools for other crypto assets.
