No one has successfully "gamified" music listening and curation. Our goal is to build a Spotify-connected mobile app where users gain and view their experience in different genres of music, become experts, and then curate those genres through a game with real money at stake.
As soon as a user downloads the app, we can leverage their listening history on Spotify and show them which genres they're experts in (see "Technology" for details), as well as how to improve their level of expertise.
If a user feels they know of a song that would represent a genre well, they can bet on the song and win real money if it's one of the better ones submitted (see "Technology for details).
Currently, when it comes to describing music taste, the majority of conversations revolve around artists, albums, songs, and maybe Pandora stations. We want to help users understand entire genres; put a focus on the collections of songs and albums that evolve through user competition on our platform.
