Bandcamp’s 47 Million Fans Celebrate the 40th Bandcamp Friday with 100% of Sales Revenue Going to its 5 Million Artists

Bandcamp

Bandcamp, the world’s largest super fan platform supporting artists, is celebrating its 40th Bandcamp Friday On May 3rd 2024, an industry unique initiative where the platform doesn't take any revenue share at all, passing all funds along to artists. Since the inception of Bandcamp Fridays in 2020, the platform has contributed $123 million to artists through this initiative alone, complementing the $1.3 billion generated for artists across all Bandcamp transactions to date. This growth is fueled by a highly dedicated fanbase, growing at a rate of approximately 100,000 per month, whose engagement is not just supporting artists financially but also driving a significant shift in how music ecosystems can operate. Bandcamp’s strategy of fostering deep connections within its community has positioned it as a leader in servicing fan passion as well as the artist. Bandcamp has created an innovative platform allowing artists to directly sell their music products to fans where an unparalleled 85-100% of revenue goes directly to artists. Superfans, the new VIPs in the music industry, and the Artists they support have collaboratively grown Bandcamp into the music industry’s most precious ecosystem. Championing generous compensation, Bandcamp inspires what it means to truly value artists. Bandcamp is unique among its peers attributing 100% of its growth to what is effectively a social network that has grown organically without advertising since its inception in 2007. Bandcamp has remained unwaveringly committed to serving as the world’s online record store and music community where passionate fans discover, connect with, and directly support the artists they love. Bandcamp’s market leading strategy extends beyond financial transactions, fostering a robust ecosystem where the music fan is central to the narrative. "Bandcamp is more than a marketplace; it's a thriving community where artists and fans converge to celebrate and sustain the art of music," explained Andrew Jervis, Bandcamp’s Director of Artists and Labels. "This community-driven model not only supports but actively promotes the growth of artists by providing them tools to manage their careers. Artists from virtually every country gain global exposure and connect directly with fans who are eager to support them, not just through purchases but through genuine engagement and feedback. Our platform facilitates these interactions by sharing useful data, enabling fans to express their shared appreciation for music, enabling direct artist-to-fan communications, and through special events like Bandcamp Live and Listening Parties, making it an indispensable hub for music discovery and artist development.." "Bandcamp's community is truly unique, fostering a deep sense of engagement between artists and fans," says Jansport J, an artist thriving on the platform. "Whether it's releasing a project with fans like Aglana from the UK in mind, knowing that Thomas in New Zealand is eagerly awaiting a pre-order, or anticipating that David in Los Angeles will add my album to his recommended list—these are real interactions that happen on Bandcamp. It's this direct connection with supportive fans across the globe that makes Bandcamp invaluable to independent artists like myself.” Bryan Biniak, President of Songtradr, Bandcamp’s parent company, highlighted the progressive impact of Bandcamp's model on the music industry, noting a strategic shift toward more equitable financial practices. "We're not standing still. Our ongoing enhancements and investments in Bandcamp are about expanding the platform's capabilities. We're introducing more tools for artists and labels to succeed, enhancing discovery, and building community features. Songtradr is actively investing in the community, the product, and new payment solutions to make the platform even stronger. These developments have already led to a 20% increase in artist earnings and a 30% rise in fan engagement, underscoring the economic vitality of the superfan community and setting the stage for even greater growth," he added. Bandcamp has curated listening parties to celebrate the 40th Bandcamp Friday, all events start at 11 am PT. Blockhead Listening Party on April 29th Jasmine Myra Listening Party on April 30th Emily Barker Listening Party on May 1st John Carpenter Live Interview and Jessica Pratt Listening Party on May 2nd Mdou Moctar Listening Party on May 3rd 40th Bandcamp Friday on May 3 where 100% of the proceeds go to the artists and labels To learn more about how Bandcamp is pioneering a new era for music, visit: www.bandcamp.com. About Bandcamp Friday: When Covid 19 hit, Bandcamp announced it would waive its usual fee for one day in order to support artists affected by the shutdown of live music. The first Bandcamp Friday took place on March 20th, and fans bought 800,000 records on Bandcamp in 24 hours, totalling $4.3m of music and merchandise. This was 15 times more than a typical Friday. Fans stepped up for the artist community and showed their commitment with their wallets knowing the purchases they made would go directly to helping the livelihood of the artists they supported. In many cases, fans pay more than the artist retail price for their music and merchandise, demonstrating their heartfelt commitment. Bandcamp announced its ongoing commitment to the artist community by pre-announcing a full year of Bandcamp Fridays for 2024. Friday May 3rd will mark the 40th Bandcamp Friday, where fans can splurge on their favorite artists and share their love, and reciprocally Bandcamp will share its support by waiving 100% of their fees.

FTN Network Releases 2024 NFL Draft Team Grades and Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide Following 2024 NFL Draft

FTN Network

FTN Network, a company built for delivering affordable, customizable, and highly detailed NFL advanced charted data for betting, season-long fantasy, and daily fantasy, ushered the 2024 football season today with the release of its 2024 NFL Draft Team Grades and 2024 Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide 2.0. The guide, which is authored by FTN President and Sirius XM Radio Host Jeff Ratcliffe, features rookie rankings, projections, veteran comps, dynasty value, trade value charts, draft boards, and more. FTN’s 2024 football season started on a high note with a successful weekend of NFL Draft coverage after providing NFL fans with some the most accurate set of mock drafts in the industry. In a field of 137 contestants, three FTN analysts finished in the top 15 of the FantasyPros mock draft accuracy contest: Tyler Loechner (4th place), Ratcliffe (13th), and Chris Meaney (14th). No other media company had two or more analysts finish inside the top 20 and Ratcliffe has now finished 13th or better in back-to-back years. FTN’s coverage included a live blog with instant reactions and fantasy projections from Ratcliffe for every fantasy-relevant rookie selected during the first three rounds of the draft. In addition to Ratcliffe’s projections and analysis, the coverage included insight from FTN’s Chief Analytics Officer and DVOA inventor Aaron Schatz, Mike Randle, Meaney, fantasy analyst Adam Pfeifer, and rookie expert Jeremy Popielarz. FTN also produced immediate, instant-reaction video breakdowns during the first night of the draft. “We provided fans with the most accurate information before the draft, live fantasy analysis during the draft across multiple mediums and the most comprehensive rookie fantasy scouting guide in the market,” said FTN Network CEO Perry Gershon. “Our extensive coverage of the NFL draft and our ongoing analysis of the incoming rookie class continues to prove that FTN is the one-stop-shop for NFL fans, fantasy players and bettors.” Along with pre, post and in-draft content, Randle gave all 32 NFL teams a 2024 Draft grade on the A-F scale. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers topped Randle’s charts with A+, A and A grades, respectively. The Carolina Panthers, Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys rounded out the bottom of the 32 teams, receiving C grades. Additionally, Randle provided fantasy grades for every team that saw the Chargers score the highest (A+) and the Atlanta Falcons and Cowboys score the lowest (F). While Ratcliffe’s 2024 Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide had been released prior to the draft, version 2.0 is now live and includes post-draft information. It can be found here. The guide includes 150 player-by-player breakdowns, draft boards, player comps, rankings for regular and superflex leagues, a dynasty rookie pick trade value chart and more and will be continuously updated before the start of the 2024 NFL season.

Made in the USA: Ultrahuman plants flag in US with manufacturing facility UltraFactory to make first wearable rings in the country

Ultrahuman

With smart ring market leadership within its sights, Ultrahuman has today announced plans to open a manufacturing facility poised to accelerate its production capacity. The UltraFactory will be located in Indiana. It opens within the next six months and will be the launchpad for Ultrahuman’s next phase of growth. The UltraFactory will offer an end-to-end production capability and is based on the company’s first operational model of such a facility in India. This development comes hot on the heels of a $35 million fresh investment in the company (series B funding round) and reaffirms Ultrahuman’s ambition to become the market leader in the smart ring space in the next 12 to 15 months. The company has already seen phenomenal growth over the past year, becoming the second-largest player in the smart ring market while maintaining profitability. The opening of the new UltraFactory, will add a production capacity of 200,000 smart rings and present an additional $100m revenue opportunity annually. This is a push towards establishing smart ring market leadership in the US. Ultrahuman’s ability to make significant long-term manufacturing investments, supported by its profitability, is unique in the smart rings market. As a result, UltraFactory’s cutting-edge end-to-end production capabilities will enable the company to fully capitalize on what the company sees as its biggest competitive advantage: fast product development and iteration, and speed of execution in rolling out to global markets. With the US market growing in importance for Ultrahuman in recent months, the move will help the company lower costs in shipping and logistics, while aiding the US government in its push to strengthen domestic manufacturing rather than manufacturing in offshore locations, like China. This brings an expected hiring boom of 150 new Ultrahuman employees in the US over the next 12 months split between engineering and research (30%) and commercial operations (70%). Mohit Kumar, Founder and CEO of Ultrahuman commented: “US is an interesting market for us given it has always been huge in terms of demand for the product but we’re also seeing tremendous value from a manufacturing and research perspective. UltraFactory US would enable manufacturing for health tracking smart ring devices and give us the ability to do necessary research to evolve the form factor further.” Ultrahuman has seen phenomenal growth over the past 12 months, becoming the second-largest player in the smart ring market while maintaining profitability. "Our vision of being the top player in terms of both active devices and geographic presence is within reach, thanks to our rapid expansion and the love we've received from our users," added Mohit Kumar. UltraFactory will help Ultrahuman support its recent retail expansion into over 150 outlets worldwide, spanning iconic locations like London’s Selfridges on Oxford Street, Changi Airport in Singapore, and the Virgin megastore in Dubai. In addition to their smart ring called Ring AIR, the Ultrahuman product suite includes a continuous glucose monitoring wearable called M1 Live, a home health device called Ultrahuman Home and a preventive blood testing product called Blood Vision. Their platform integrates glucose, sleep, movement, blood markers, and HRV, offering a comprehensive approach to health monitoring. "Our growth is a testament to the user love for our products, highlighted by industry-leading NPS and engagement metrics since the launch of our latest model, the Ring AIR. Our relentless focus on improving user experience through continuous firmware and software updates is what sets us apart," Mohit Kumar emphasized. "Shipping a new firmware version every 2 weeks and weekly app improvements reflect our commitment to excellence and our speed of execution, our biggest competitive advantage. We’ve also iterated on hardware at the speed of software by designing novel devices like Ultrahuman Home, a home health monitor.” Looking ahead, Ultrahuman is on track to surpass $100 million in annualized revenue run rate (ARR) by the end of 2024, a milestone that will be achieved profitably. "Our ability to make long-term manufacturing investments, supported by our profitability, is unique in the smart ring market," Mohit Kumar noted. Ultrahuman's dedication to scientific validation and innovation is further evidenced by the completion of a clinical trial involving 105 participants, aimed at validating the ‘Metabolic Score’ generated on the Ultrahuman platform. "Our long-term investment in R&D and intellectual property is a cornerstone of our strategy, ensuring that our products not only meet but exceed the highest standards of efficacy and reliability," Mohit Kumar concluded. About Ultrahuman Ultrahuman is the world's most advanced metabolic fitness platform. Ultrahuman’s products include the Ultrahuman M1(continuous glucose monitoring sensor), the Ultrahuman Ring and Blood Vision, a preventive blood testing platform with the pioneering UltraTrace™ technology.
