    Apparently they only have enough money to stay afloat for another 2 months! Even if they get investors, it still doesn't fix the issue of making money.

    When they first came out I didn't know how they were supposed to bring in any income because it seemed like a weird business model. Anyway, let's see how this plays out.

    Either the SoundCloud masses will migrate to Clyp, or some company will buy SoundCloud.

    Yeah but the thing is even with Clyp or any other platform, I don't see how revenue comes in.

    I'm hearing that such artists as Chance, and others that made their marks through this avenue are working out the issue.

    ^Heard the same

    There are gonna be people who invest in it, but it will indeed be interesting to see what comes of it. In a way, if it were to go away it would not be a necessarily bad thing. It would push people to push their music in different ways instead of uploading it and then being like fuck it. (like myself lmao).

    I dont think it will flat out die before it fails it will be purchased. There is just too much traffic.

    @Vik you have to remember with SC they messed up by being friends with majors, in others words they don't and will never give a damn about non major musos.

    It will be interesting to see how this pans out..I'm hoping for an alternative. There seems not much point in uploading stuff on SC any more.

    They'll probably survive but maybe with more restrictions, who knows.
