Ontology and Muzika are Building a Decentralized Music Platform
Ontology, a new high-performance public multi-chain project and a distributed trust collaboration platform, has announced a partnership with decentralized blockchain music ecosystem platform Muzika. Muzika will develop dApps and a new music ecosystem based on Ontology’s underlying technology. Ontology and Muzika will also cooperate in events and community.
In the past 20 years, the music industry has experienced two giant transformations: from physical records to digital music and from music downloads to online streaming. The first transformation has made music more accessible, while the second has played a key role in expanding the industry.
However, this industry has its own problems: middlemen and copyright, limited fan participation, unbalanced and unclear economic distribution, and more. With the continuous development of the music industry, the revenue share of musicians who produce original music has declined, while music publishers are enjoying long-term returns from a one-off task. In this regard, there is an urgent need to build a decentralized and reliable blockchain music platform.
Therefore, Muzika’s sustainable music ecosystem solution will use Ontology’s underlying technology to give fans a new identity, allowing them to be involved in any step of the industry if they wish. Fans can participate in parts of music production, allocation, consumption, and profit distribution. This will form stronger networks and allow original music to be produced and distributed fairly.
By building an autonomous and reasonable digital music ecosystem, Muzika will eliminate unnecessary intermediaries and media, give more rights to musicians and fans, and eventually restore the profit balance among market participants.
Muzika has over two million active users and 17,000 music producers across more than 150 countries, with rich experience in community management and user management. Under the direction of Ontology’s real economy strategy, Muzika can connect different aspects of people, assets, objects, and affairs in the digital system through Ontology’s distributed services to integrate the music world with real businesses, and encourage greater trust collaboration.
Speaking on this cooperation, Inseo Chung, CEO of Muzika, expressed:
“Muzika is creating a real decentralized digital music ecosystem for the digital music industry to close the gap of all stakeholders with an innovative structure. The cooperation between Muzika and Ontology will be a great step in this. We look forward to working together to achieve a transformation of the digital music world”.
Ontology’s Founder LI Jun said:
“Music has various application scenarios in our life. Ontology is delighted to collaborate with an innovative team like Muzika to challenge the music industry. With the development of the dApp, the relation between music producer and fan will be changed, bringing a better music user experience and achieving a more balanced profit distribution and long-term cooperation model. We believe that the integration of blockchain technology and music will create a better landscape for the future”.
Muzika is a music blockchain platform with a mission to apply blockchain technology to the daily lives of the public. It aims to be the first digital music blockchain application to gain public recognition and popularity. It also has a leading core team, with all three founders included in Forbes Asia’s Top 30 under 30. The team also operates multiple platforms including Mapianist, MyMusicSheet, and KPopPiano.
Muzika has more than two million active users and 17,000 music artists across more than 150 countries from Mapia’s business platform, which lays the foundation of Muzika’s success. By building a music ecosystem maintained by producer and consumer, music fans can directly participate in sponsorship and production, and have freedom and rights in consumption and income distribution.

Ontology and TOP to Partner in Communication Technology
Ontology, a new high-performance public multi-chain project and distributed trust collaboration platform, has announced its strategic cooperation with TOP Network to build a communication network ecosystem at blockchain application level. Ontology Global Capital (OGC) will also make an investment in TOP. Ontology will fully support the TOP Network in technology, operations, and ecosystem construction, and promote mutual development.
From terminal-to-terminal connection in the PC era to person-to-person connection today, communication technology has dramatically changed the way we live. However, information islands are still created by over-centralization. Therefore, traditional communication technologies and decentralized networks need to be closely integrated to generate innovative solutions to break this.
TOP is devoted to creating a distributed communication platform to provide a secure and low-cost communication cloud service for developers. Traditionally, developers need to build their own communication stacks and deploy their own networks for communication applications and maintaining the communication network. This pattern has long development cycles, high costs, and poor network security. Top communication chain provides developers with a one-stop solution and allows them to save more than 60% expenses via building a decentralized communication network.
In this cooperation, Ontology will provide the underlying basic blockchain technology, integrate blockchain systems, and provide a data exchange, data identity, high-performance smart contracts, and other services to build an open platform and ecosystem. TOP will develop decentralized applications on Ontology’s blockchain platform based on its own communication services.
CEO of TOP Network, Steve Wei, was one of the early employees from WebEx, the world largest video conference provider. His original video conference software was acquired by Huawei and he has rich experience in the communication field.
Speaking on this cooperation, Steve believes:
“Ontology is not only a mature high-performance public chain platform, but it also provides very strong basic service components such as ONT ID and ONT Data for on-chain business, which are very user-friendly. TOP communication chain will provide decentralized communication cloud services for Ontology developers and enable them to easily develop high-performance communication social applications on Ontology, which will save a large amount of development costs and communication network costs. Also, the TOP team will directly develop communication applications on Ontology’s platform, bringing a significant number of users to the Ontology ecosystem. The partnership of Ontology and TOP is built on the basis of mutual benefit, which provides strong impetus for the ecosystem construction of both parties”.TOP Network and the Ontology Team
Speaking on this cooperation, Ontology’s Founder LI Jun said:
“With the rapid development of communication networks, information islands will be broken and the target for an ‘internet of everything’ will be more achievable. Blockchain technology will add more power to the whole development process. Ontology is delighted to cooperate with TOP, a blockchain-based decentralized communication network. With the accumulation of TOP’s experience in the communication industry, we will provide data exchange, data identity, and high-performance smart contracts and other services to jointly build an open platform and developer ecosystem”.
