Every Input will describe a virtual activity/event/news/expectation that will have a direct or indirect impact on the generation of royalties of a certain catalogue.

Participants can acquire participations in Catalogues buying Shares. The price of a catalogue is the result of an estimation of its future royalty generations. Price of catalogues shall be influenced by the Inputs provided by ANote Music, which should influence the expectation about future royalty generations and therefore, profitability of the catalogue itself.

The trading instruments that the Registered Users will be able to use on the Trading Platform are Shares, for which they will be able to issue online buy and sell orders.

The market on which the Registered User will be able to trade is the one available on the Trading Platform. Since participationto the Trading Cup is free of charge, the Trading Platform is available in demo version and does not guarantee the entire coverage of services compared to its real offer in full version.

At the closing of the Trading Cup (Day 15), ANote Music will prepare a Final Ranking. The Final Ranking will be calculated based only on the cash balance present on the Registered User’s account.  Registered Users are advised to gradually close all their open positions on the Catalogues, rather than trying to sell all their assets at once just before the closure of the Trading Cup.
