Rewards Platform Pays Music Streaming Users for Listening

Current, a rewards platform that enables a blockchain-powered entertainment experience for consumers, has announced a media rewards ecosystem for iOS and Android users.

Current pays users for listening across 100,000+ stations from around the world. According to the company, users can earn as much as $600 in value per year, with points redeemable for gift cards, consumer electronics and other forms of payment coming such as cryptocurrency.

In addition to listening to their favorite music, users can earn points by viewing qualified videos, performing microtasks, completing short surveys, and voluntarily sharing basic personal information.

“Current gives people an exciting new option by unlocking rewards for things they already do every day,” said Dan Novaes, Current’s co-founder and CEO. “Consumers are quickly realizing that their attention and participation in online activities has inherent value. Current offers them an easy way to profit from that participation. This is real value that adds up significantly for the user, by the day, week, month, and year.”

Current users redeem the points they earn for gift cards from a wide range of stores, shopping sites, and entertainment providers through partnerships that include Amazon, Best Buy, Uber, Google Play, iTunes, Target, Walmart, Starbucks, and many others. They can also redeem points for electronic goods such as headphones, smart watches, speakers, and other accessories.

The Current app can be downloaded on the App Store and Google Play.
