Offerings can consist of a variety of income streams (this is shown on the Artist’s offering page, and further detail can be found in the formal offering documents).

What exactly am I investing in?

High-level breakdown of investment composition is available on each Artist’s offering page, and further detail can be found in the Offering Circular. Investments can be composed of a number of revenue streams from each artist.
