Bittunes is an Australian Start Up Company that has taken on the mission to create a new software platform to do something remedial in relation to the music industry. This has been a long term goal, going back almost ten years, but was kick started in 2013 with the sudden wide adoption of Bitcoin in April 2013.

Bittunes has been in semi-stealth mode since the project started, and this has been for many reasons. We are wanting to make a platform that significantly changes the status quo in the music industry and, quite simply you cannot do this over night. To create a system that has the potential to cause real disruption in the music industry we needed to prove principle of our concept and to build strategic alliances with key ‘friendly’ players in the independent music sector. We must take a ‘one step at a time’ approach if we are going to achieve our goals, and we are happy to report that we are on track to doing just that.
