This streaming platform is a great tool for music lovers and musicians to streamline the way that we consume music. However, I feel as though the artist isn’t financially compensated properly. If spotify was able to increase the “per stream” revenue from its measly 0.0084$ maximum. This means in order to earn 100$ you would need to gather 11,905 streams, and that's if everyone was a paid user. I am glad billboard has decided to count paid streams more, so maybe spotify can pay an artist more based on paid streams.
