Today, November 7th, marks a turning point in Ujo’s history. Due to ongoing maintenance costs, the time has come for us to bid farewell to our beloved Alpha project. Instead of spending time maintaining the prototype, which fulfilled its purpose, we are knuckling down to build an open platform for all artists.
The Ujo team joined with Grammy award winning artist, Imogen Heap’s initial Mycelia experiment as both wanted a more fair and open music industry. Imogen posted Tiny Human to her website along with all relevant metadata for the song to see what new music services could do with it. In collaboration with Heap, we were able to showcase the power of the blockchain in getting Tiny Human up for sale on the newly launched Ethereum blockchain.
