SOMESING, a social music network, announced on Feb. 28 that it has launched the beta version of its hand-carry karaoke app in the Google Play Store, and is offering various prizes such as BT21 Friends Duo Speaker & Figure through its official Facebook and Instagram.
At SOMESING, which aims to be a social music network where any sing-lovers can enjoy singing songs for free, the songs users sing become new content. The more popular a song becomes, the more rewards the singer will receive.
This reward system is possible as SOMESING is based on blockchain technology.
SOMESING has been attracting industry attention because its karaoke app, which is a life-friendly entertainment service, is the first of its kind to incorporate blockchain technology.
Its beta version, released on Feb. 28, has reflected the most important elements of a karaoke app, including sound quality and sound effects, the sync between music source and voice, duet and video functions, and will be conducting a beta test with users using ICON's Testnet.
SOMESING’s full version will be released soon after improving the beta version based on test results.
Kim Heui-bae Kim, CEO of SOMESING, commented on the launch of the beta version, "We have been putting a lot of effort to improve sound quality, sync, and duet functions based on our operation of the online karaoke app for four years. With these years of experience, we are now able to build a new ecosystem for sing-lovers by incorporating blockchain technology."
Kim also said, "Test for our beta version is being conducted with many users of existing karaoke apps, but since karaoke is a popular service, we intend to hear various opinions of new users as well about the quality of the service".
“Reflecting the diverse needs of our users, SOMESING will provide the best environment for them to produce their own song content,” Kim emphasized.
Kim Jong-hyup, a board member of ICON Foundation, said, "SOMESING's app, which is one of the decentralized applications (DApps) of ICON, is the first iconic example of the application of blockchain technology to the real world, and SOMESING will prove the growth potential of various life-friendly DApps that are based on the ICON platform."
A SOMESING official said, "Anyone can participate in the beta version launch event through SOMESING’s official Facebook and Instagram, which will be held until March 10. The prizes include BT21 Friends Duo Speaker & Figureand other valuable products."
