Current is the first streaming platform that pays you, not the other way around. We provide free access to over 100,000 music stations and reward our users for time spent listening. We are working on a more equitable business model that aligns interests and rewards listeners while also providing more value to advertisers. Throughout the streaming experience, users can opt-in to complete offers, share information, and engage with sponsored content to earn up to $600 per year.

Our goal is to provide a fantastic free music experience and additional income for the 90% of the world who can’t afford a paid streaming service, by sharing the revenue generated from their attention and personal data. We believe this business model will become the standard in the years to come and will transform the way human attention is measured and monetized. 

We are well-financed with several years of runway.
