We are currently living in a time that has experienced a greater rate of change than any other time in history, affecting all industries and aspects of work life -- something these music platforms are definitely taking into account. The digital age has seen a fundamental shift in the way we listen to and enjoy music. To ensure that content creators, big name musicians and indie artists alike can be recognized and properly compensated for their work, many enterprising services have been established. They provide new ways for musicians to not only market themselves and reach ears, but also get paid.

Alternative payment methods are one option for such music platforms. This includes cryptocurrency tipping such as bitcoin. Subscription models and online marketplaces are also becoming more prevalent, from NASDAQ-like music exchanges to crowdfunded sites.
