Heardbeats, found online at Heardbeats.com, is a blockchain project that allows users to access live content experiences through virtual reality. Here’s our review.
What Is Heardbeats?
Heardbeats, found online at Heardbeats.com, promises to help users “experience live concerts like never before.”
Using Heardbeats, you can eliminate the physical barriers between you and a live concert. You can use Heardbeats to experience a live concert-like experience in real time through virtual reality.
In other words, Heardbeats sells virtual concert tickets for real live concerts. Those concerts are taking place worldwide. You wear a virtual reality headset and headphones, then experience the concert in real-time from the comfort of your own home.
Each concert has unlimited virtual tickets for sale at an affordable price. You can try the Heardbeats demo online today at the official site.
Heardbeats will also launch its own virtual reality headset, complete with surround sound headphones. That headset is scheduled to launch in September 2018.
Some of the core advertised features of Heardbeats include:
The Best Live Concerts:
You can enjoy live streaming concerts at an affordable price from the best seats in the house. Virtual reality footage is filmed from an optimal vantage point to watch and see the show.
On Demand Concert Library:
Heardbeats will have a library of on-demand concerts available through its video on demand (VOD) library. That library lets users enjoy hundreds of live concerts whenever they like. Concerts will be broadcast through PPV initially (like in the weeks or months immediately after the concert) before being added to the VOD library.
360 Degree Experience:
You can use your virtual reality device to place yourself in the best seat in the house at all times. You get a 360 degree view of the concert, including a surround sound experience.
Heardbeats will have multiple cameras transmitting the content live in 4K or full HD. You can choose from multiple camera angles to get the experience you like – so whether you want to be mixed with the seated crowd or in the front row, Heardbeats lets you do that.
Partnerships With Favorite Artists:
Heardbeats will do more than just provide concert footage. The company also plans to partner with artists to distribute exclusive content to fans. Some of that exclusive content could include backstage content, sound tests, and interviews.
Heardbeats plans to support multiple virtual reality devices.
Interact With Other Fans:
Heardbeats has a messaging platform where fans can interact with each other during the concert.
Buy special tour packages to experience every show by your favorite artist.
Heardbeats VR Headset:
The Heardbeats VR headset will be released in September 2018. The headset is specifically designed for the best possible sound and concert experience.
Ultimately, the Heardbeats website frequently brings up Adele’s music tour in 2016. During that tour, 10 million fans attempted to buy tickets, but only 100,000 tickets were available. 9 million fans (people who are willing to pay to attend the event) were unable to see Adele. Heardbeats aims to address that problem by removing the physical barriers that exist in the industry.
The Heardbeats Token Sale
The Heardbeats token is the official currency of the platform. These tokens serve as a means of payment for concert tickets or monthly subscriptions. You can also use tokens to purchase the Heardbeats VR headset.
Heardbeats tokens, or HBT, go on sale from November 3 to November 9 during a pre-ICO, then from November 15 to December 12, 2017 during the main ICO.
There’s a total supply of 110,000,000 tokens. 11 million are available during the pre-ICO, while 77 million are available during the main ICO. The tokens are set at an initial price of $0.45.
Of the total supply, 80% is going towards the pre-ICO and ICO (70% ICO 10% pre-ICO), while 17% is going to the team and advisors and 3% is going to bounties.
Bonuses are available throughout the token sale.
Who’s Behind Heardbeats?
Heardbeats is led by Javier Held (CEO and Co-Founder), an experienced businessman and company director with experience in Latin American, New York, and London.
Other key members of the team include Carlos Torres (CPO and Co-Founder), Juan Carlos Tapia (Chief Marketing Officer), Diego Plaza (Chief Technology Officer), and Natalia Albornoz (Chief Design Officer).
The company was founded in 2016. Most of the team seems to be originally from Chile, although the company is officially registered as a Delaware corporation (Heardbeats LLC).
Heardbeats has already completed significant development of the platform. However, with their ICO, they’re seeking to relocate their headquarters to Silicon Valley, develop the Android and iOS app, complete negotiations with producers, and develop applications for Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV.
Heardbeats seeks to change the way we experience live concerts. Using a custom-made virtual reality headset, Heardbeats allows fans to experience concerts from the comfort of their home. Heardbeats will sell an unlimited number of virtual concert tickets for each event. Heardbeats will also have an on-demand library of footage available, including previous concerts from your favorite artists.
You don’t need a virtual reality headset to experience Heardbeats. The company plans to release apps for Android, iOS, Apple TV, and other platforms.
The crowdsale for Heardbeats is taking place throughout November and December. You can learn more online today at Heardbeats.com.
