On February 27, 2018, DSound creator Pedro Reis Colaço (@prc) announced a new backbone for the music industry composed of the MN8 Audio Exchange Protocol (MN8 AEP) - allow Emanate audio to be integrated with any platform... with rights, royalties, payments and all metadata built in. He believed that MN8 AEP is to music, what HTTP is to web content but upgraded with decentralization, real time monetization and trust less licensing and collaboration.
