Our friends at Earbits made a huge splash recently! Earbits is an ad-free indie music streaming service. They’ve been around for a couple of years now and continue to launch features that keep pushing them above other music streaming services.
Earbits just released “the first social currency for steaming music” called Groovies. Groovies are a way for Earbits to pay artists in data and promotion from fans performing certain actions. Fan use Groovies to stream songs on-demand and can earn them many different ways: opening an Earbits account, sharing music from Earbits via Facebook or Twitter, and “Liking” the band’s official Facebook page or email list. The fans get instant access to great music and the artist establish a data connection to these fans to promote live shows, downloads, t-shirts, and many other things.
If you think about it, fans are already talking about the music they like whether it’s because they “liked” that band on Facebook or are tweeting about it. So the guys at Earbits thought why not encourage fans to do more of this and get something in return.
Check out the other press Earbits has received on this new release:
- Groovy, baby: Earbits’ social currency lets indie music fans unlock on-demand streaming features
- Earbits Launches Social Music Currency ‘Groovies’
- At Earbits radio you promote the music, earn “Groovies.” and listen on demand

We’re excited to have Earbits in the portfolio. Keep an eye out for more exciting announcements coming soon from this incredible team.
