Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is royal?

Royal is a platform enabling anyone to invest directly in their favorite songs and earn royalties alongside the artist.
We believe in a future where artists' freedom is inevitable. Royal strives to unlock the ability for artists to independently retain the majority rights to their work while opening the door for their community and fans to invest in them and alongside them.

How does royal work?

Artists use royal to share true ownership in their songs directly with fans, as investors.
1) Artists use royal to create digital assets with embedded ownership in the master recording, earning royalties from income-producing activities such as streaming. These assets can also include extras provided by the artist – access to exclusive communities, free merchandise, concert tickets... and more.
2) Investors can purchase these digital assets.
3) Royal collects and distributes royalties to all owners.
4) In the future, owners will be able to buy and sell between one another.

Why would an artist sell their ownership?

With royal, artists have the opportunity to gain independence from traditional deals by getting paid for their work directly from their fans and biggest believers. We are creating a system where artists and fans can benefit mutually without relying on middlemen taking most of the profits.
