Not really sure about cryptocurrency in music, as I to be honest like most, don't really understand it. The relevance of telling a person that bitcoin now costs X amount of something is great if you have some. The downside at this point is it's already been taken care of. The ability for it to trickle down in my mind regardless of what the currency is, FIAT or CRYPTO is crucial to its success. Having stated before that streams to me are opportunities regardless of the real-time lack of monetary reward! If you're making even a fraction monthly then surely that must be a good sign - but it could take years! I've only ever seen an increase in that in recent years and not having the touring capabilities it's difficult to guess, who is actually out there.
No the relevance of making royalties in music is that you somehow do: If larger companies start paying out better revenues in a digital currency I'm all for that, based on a stock exchange(s) and prices having an ability to rise and bring some worth to a songbook portfolio.
You can see from my own charts that the influence of a platform like TikTok even entertains my own music which is great based on its clearly being used. I've always worked on the basis of the music holds up so it travels. I suppose I wouldn't mind being paid out in digital forms of currency.
