The app uses a token system where one can purchase tokens with a Visa or MasterCard for $1, $3 or $12. “If you don’t have tokens then the music will stop playing after one minute,” said PlayBit representative, Hosea Hamalwa.

According to Hamalwa the name PlayBit came after the put the word Play, which in their context refers to a media file played over an internet connection or offline and the word ‘Bit’ which is the smallest unit of data representing the 0s and 1s in a computer.

“Artists will be able to release their albums exclusively with PlayBit which will be available for Every PlayBit user. And they won’t be able to copy it in terms of duplicating music for no fee to other audiences,” Hamalwa said.
The app is available on various devices such as IOS, Android, Windows & MacOS.
