We have some news for you! Funding will now be paid back before any royalties are shared with the rightsholders, which means that backers have a much higher likelihood of getting their money back and making a profit. This means that campaigns will now have a number showing the return if the streaming goal is reached, but the actual streams needed for payback will be lower.
Let’s say you invested €10 and it gave you 10% of the song and no one else invested. If the song reaches its streaming goal, you would first get your money back, €10, then 10% of the rest, in this case €90. This means you would get €9 more, so in total you would get €10+€9=€19 or 1.9 times the money you invested. If the song streams less, the return is less, if it’s more, the returns are higher. All share the risk but also the success!
Have a great week and stay safe!
