We have been working with many different models to help support artists as they begin a career in music. Our vision for ArtistSignal is unique and we are still finding our way. Regarding our recent change, we have heard your comments loud and clear; days have been spent reading through the feedback, and we believe we have reached a fair solution. To better parallel the music industry standard of royalty distribution, we envision using a distribution system based on airplay and votes. ArtistSignal believes that this is fair because the more impact an artist has, the more he or she should earn. Our Top Artist will continue to receive $1,000. An additional $5000 will be divided among the remaining artists in the chart based on percentage of votes. In order to facilitate a more realistic distribution, we will no longer be paying any transactions below $10. For more information about what is coming to ArtistSignal, please check out our latest blog entries at blog.artistsignal.com.
