SOMESING, a Korean startup that operates a blockchain-based karaoke app, said on 26 April that it has launched an iOS beta version application in Apple's App Store.
The company has started a launch event offering prizes such as iPhone and Golden Goose Snickers through its official Facebook and Instagram.
"Since the launch of a beta version app for Android on Google Store in late February, SOMESING has received a lot of attention from users. So far, about 20,000 users have downloaded it and we have more than 1,000 daily active users and brisk transactions on the ICON network," said Kim Heui-bae, CEO of SOMESING. “The release of the iOS beta version will allow global iPhone users to easily download and enjoy SOMESING." Kim added, "A continuous increase in the number of users will make SOMESING app a global decentralized application (dApp)."
"The release of SOMESING's iOS application in the game-oriented market will enhance the value of a variety of content and contribute to expanding the blockchain ecosystem," said Lee Jung-hoon, director of ICON foundation. “In the future, we expect SOMESING to have a positive impact on the activation of the dApp market based on the ICON platform.”
SOMESING aims to become a social music network where anyone who loves songs can enjoy singing for free. On the SOMESING’s blockchain-based platform, songs covered by users become new content, and the more popular a song becomes, the more profits the singer gets. It is characterized by a fair rewarding system based on blockchain. It is also drawing attention from the industry and market as a life-friendly entertainment service.
"People can participate in the iOS beta version launch event through SOMESING's official Facebook and Instagram until May 7, and SOMESING will offer iPhones, Golden Goose Snickers, Airpod2, BT21 Friends Duo Bluetooth speakers and figures as prizes," a SOMESING official said.
