In the investing world, “Follow the Money” means following where Big Investors invest their money to follow big trends and maximize your ROI gains. 
 
WHERE ARE BIG INVESTORS INVESTING THEIR MONEY?
 
Answer – The music industry!

Tencent is expected to invest up to $6.8 Billion to acquire 20% of Universal Music Group.

WHY ARE BIG MONEY INVESTORS INVESTING INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?
 
Answer – Music-tech is driving record growth that is powering the music industry to levels never imagined before… Levels never thought possible before the digital revolution!    
 
The three major record labels (Universal, Sony and Warner), who generate approximately $1 million per hour from digital streaming ($16,000+ per second), are today valued at nearly $90 Billion.  
 
Even with record profits and valuations, the industry is expected to grow at the fastest rate in history over the next ten years.  Music streaming revenue which is consistently growing at 30-40% per year, still only represents 47% of global music revenue.  Tremendous upside is still on the horizon!  
 
Goldman Sachs accurately declared the next 10 years the Golden Era of Music.  The once-in-a-lifetime digital revolution is expected to generate record growth and profits to the tune of $131 Billion per year.
 
The current state of the music industry is similar to the Great American Gold Rush.  This is why Big Tech is investing Billions into music acquiring music-tech companies in a race to capture market share ahead of the Golden Era of Music.  
 
And TuneGO as a Foundational platform for digital music, is the Levi Strauss of the Golden Era.
