"As the only engage-to-earn social music platform in the industry, we are fundamentally changing the way artists and brands interact with their fans," said Ketan Rahangdale, CEO of Unitea. "It is an incredible privilege to have such a diverse and experienced board stand behind our vision and roadmap, and help us make it a reality."

Unitea's engage-to-earn platform leverages blockchain technology and an in-app economy to incentivize fans as they engage with their favorite artists and brands. By sharing music, creating unique content, and more, fans earn digital tokens that can be used for real rewards, from direct artist access to curated online and in-person experiences. At the same time, Unitea's data-driven marketing tools allow artists and brands to leverage audience insights in a more transparent and authentic way, creating stronger fan communities and new revenue streams.

"By successfully combining traditional social media techniques with Web3, Unitea is allowing brands to create new highly impactful engagements for brands with music fans, in ways that were simply not possible previously," said Steve Forcione, Former Global Innovation Lead at WPP.

"We're excited about the unique ways Unitea enables connection with our community of fans, from adding experiential layers into our live events, to incentivizing fans to stream music from the artists on the label," said Dirtybird Records Founder Barclay Crenshaw. "The music industry is constantly evolving in how fans can more closely connect with their favorite artists and I believe the technology Unitea has built is already bringing about the next evolution which will bridge this gap in ways previously unavailable."

In addition to its music app, Unitea's proven technology platform can be utilized across industries by brands, music festivals, sports organizations, and more to launch customized engage-to-earn initiatives, and provide a more rewarding way to share information and engage with their communities.
