User Centric: Streaming Gentrification or Fairness

Streaming is here to stay, but is it a sustainable ecosystem for new artists? Artists call the current model "streaming gentrification" because the status quo seems to be a hyper efficient market share distribution of royalties to the biggest sellers. Fans pay for music they don't listen to. What is the "user centric" or "ethical pool" alternative to the status quo and is it any better? The audience gets to participate in critiquing each model.
