This proposal is to draft how user approval should be done for the creation of a new market (music. μ-zomia) with current concerns.
Initially, μ-zomia was planning to use soundcloud accounts for user authentication. However, some music-related people do not have soundcloud accounts (behind-the-scenes recording engineers, composers, conductors, etc., who do not have any output as music that can be viewed under their own names).
Even if we could get the above people in the background to create soundcloud accounts, it would be difficult to get an official batch. (It is assumed that they will not be able to upload songs under their own names, etc.)
Although it is possible to proceed with authentication using soundcloud accounts while ignoring the above, it is difficult to say that this is support for all people involved in music, and is considered to be against the open philosophy of Web 3.0.
This is not only a problem with soundcloud, but the same concern arises when trying to implement authorization for “public artist” accounts such as Spotify accounts and apple music accounts.
As an alternative/solution, I thought of using “Youtube account” for user authentication.
The reason is as follows.
- It is easy to create a Youtube account (you can also authenticate with your phone number, so you can identify yourself).
- It is possible to create an account for music related people other than artists.
- When Proof of creation is introduced later, we can check the activity.
Youtube accounts are already desired as “Youtuber market” by many people, so it is necessary to separate “music segment” among Youtube accounts (it is unclear whether this is technically possible)
No decision has been made within the Dev Protocol community to start talking about a Youtuber market.
I would like to adopt Youtube accounts as the authentication method for μ-zomia, if it is technically possible to assign attributes to Youtube accounts later (music related, general Youtuber, science, etc.).
If this method can be realized, it can provide a means of account creation for many music-related workers.
As a result of our prior thinking about the launch of the music market, we thought that this was an issue related to the Youtuber market, which is a major market candidate later on. I would like to hear your opinions.
