I see tremendous potential for the Music Blockchain and all it's extensions. I have a few questions/suggestions:The blockchain does NOT support any binary data. It's a ledger of ownership and

licenceship. The data as to be distributed in a different manner (for now) ...
Though the profit is shares with the shareholders onchain. Please read the
whitepaper or the FAQ:
Are 3rd parties encouraged to develop clients, support sites, etc targeting these markets?Short answer: YES!!!! of course!!!!
Long answer: Peertracks is a company making profit out of the bitshares music
blockchain. The blockchain is owned by the shareholders of NOTES. EVERYONE can
use the blockchain as he likes to. You can add your own assets, add your own
applications ontop of it .. It's a little like Bitcoin vs. Mastercoin vs.
Counterparty, although BitShares tech is alot more advanced
First, thank you both @cass, @xeroc, etc.. your contributions to the community rank well up there with Bitshares greats (no smoke).
I misspoke, regarding what content was welcome and/or compatible with the platform. I meant to say, Peertracks as the repository/library not the actual music blockchain.
But along that thread, I wonder is it possible/practical to integrate a "MaidSafe-Drive" or "Storj-Meta Disk" like storage solutions. Reaching out to these community would add strength to the Bitshares ecosystem and potentially address single points of failure, censorship, privacy and further decentralize the end product.
As an AGS/PTS supporter/investor Bitshares has been mostly a passive investment for me, that is about to change. Waiting for the toolkit to mature is no longer an option and selfish on my part. I'll be posting a series of bounties and requests for proposal in the next fews days. Some will tie back to the 501c(6) non profit foundation I co-founded the other a full commercial venture leveraging my resources in my healthcare business. All will fully honor the AGS/PTS contract.
I'm very much looking forward to engaging, the sidelines can be quite boring !
