Welcome to the inaugural Audius newsletter, a monthly roundup of community highlights, new artists, upcoming events, Audius metrics and milestones, and more!
In 2020, the Audius community set a new record of over 1.9M unique users and welcomed iconic artists like Skrillex with the launch of the $AUDIO token. Now, artists can verify their Audius account using Instagram! This comes with the launch of $AUDIO staking and delegation, making it possible to earn network rewards for securing Audius!

Wisdom of the Crowd
“Audius has helped bring back the joy of making and sharing music. With their unique remix feature I’ve been able to host a few competitions for my originals and have had a lot of fun doing remixes and entering contests for other artists on the platform. I’m a big fan of what they’re doing, especially with $AUDIO, and the community aspect of everything is so great. I’m stoked to see what the future holds in store!” - Pauline Herr
