Voting is now open for the inaugural Audius Awards, an initiative created by the fully decentralized music streaming platform to allow its growing community to have their voices heard and to celebrate a banner year.
Audius ended 2020 with roughly 500,000 monthly listeners and has seen that number boom to nearly 7 million as 2021 comes to a close, with more than 200,000 artists contributing to the blockchain-based streaming platform.
And now Audius wants the community to decide who made the biggest splash this year, with voting commencing for categories including Best Artist, Best DJ Mix, Most Active Community Presence, and Top Label on Audius, among others.
The Top 5 vote-getters in every category will receive a "Silver Audius Awards NFT" while every single community member who votes will receive a participation NFT.
Competition is sure to be fierce as Audius saw some big names, such as Dillon Francis, Subtronics, and Disclosure show up nearly every week on trending tracks, while other acts such as Zedd and Mike Shinoda came in hot upon their arrival to the platform.
Those interested in weighing in can vote at Audius.one/vote. Voting will remain open until 11:59 pm PST Friday, December 17.
Be sure to check back on Audius' social channels at 12 pm PST Wednesday, December 22 for a livestream event announcing the winners.
