With the rise of Apple Pay, Venmo and other more modern payment methods, millennials don’t usually carry around cash with them anymore. One group of people that can suffer from this change are street musicians. With this in mind we created Davis.
With the full cooperation of the Music Under New York, Musicians Foundation, Music from the Streets and other street music related foundations, a cryptocurrency could fund the life of a street performer. The system is very simple. An artist would open our app and film his crowd. The amount of people paying attention to the show would be the amount of money an artist would make. Companies that want to support street music would accept the currency in their business.
