SoundCloud launches artist verification system

SoundCloud has launched an artist verification system. All verified performers will now be labeled accordingly (white check mark in blue circle). According to representatives of the platform, this will help both users and the artists themselves.

To get a verified musician badge, you need to be quite popular within the platform. The profile should not contain any unnecessary or incorrect information. According to SoundCloud’s plans, the verification program will take about 30 days.

Among other things, representatives of SoundCloud noted that the new system will eliminate errors associated with the existing paid system: for $ 12 per month, the user could get additional features and the mark “Pro”. Many perceived this paid subscription as a method of verification, but this was not intended.
