Digitals are the MOST IMPORTANT CRITERIA for winning on K-Music Shows, worth 40-65% of the total score.
In order to get Digital points, we need to stream Ateez music on KOREAN MUSIC PLATFORMS and it needs to chart.
Streaming on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play Music, etc. do NOT count towards Digitals.

ACCOUNTS & STREAMING PASSES
What are streaming passes?
➔ K-Music sites usually require a subscription to be able to stream and download music
➔ How to do it? Purchase an account and "Streaming Pass" from a reputable seller
➔ They will create an account & purchase the subscription for you so you can login & stream
➔ Passes lasts for 30 days
Where to buy accounts & streaming passes?
➔ You can buy from sellers such as @_DELSHOP_
➔ There are 2 types of passes: Streaming Only or Streaming + Downloads
➔ Costs range from $8 to $26 depending on the type of pass and the K-Music platform
➔ See this thread for how to stream on the different apps
Genie is the easiest platform International fans can help with, so it's encouraged for International Atiny to focus on Genie while Korean Atiny focus on Melon and Bugs. [click here for Genie tutorials]
What if I want to help but can't afford it?
➔ @AtinyNetwork loans Genie accounts & passes for free (funded by donations)
➔ Accounts are not recommended to be shared unless you can ensure that multiple people will not be streaming at the same time (simultaneous streaming does not work). You must log out before anyone else can stream from the same account.
➔ Please only request an account if you can be dedicated to streaming so as not to waste the pass!
➔ International Atiny can also help Korean Atiny by creating Bugs IDs which they use for mass downloads. It's free and easy to do!
What if I don't have time to help but can afford it?
➔ Your donation will go towards funding Genie accounts & streaming passes for Atiny who are unable to afford their own
HOW TO GET ATEEZ SONGS TO CHART?
➔ The song needs to go viral to the general public on its own, or
➔ We need a LARGE amount of Atiny (ideally thousands) streaming hourly
➔ Mass streaming needs to be organized & consistent. There needs to be high hourly baseline streams in order for mass downloads to be effective
What's up with 0 Digital score?
The first thing you need to understand about this is:
Ateez's Korean fanbase is currently still rather small.
Currently, Ateez INTERNATIONAL fanbase is much, much vaster than their DOMESTIC fanbase. The current K-Atiny numbers unfortunately are not large enough to do it on their own, especially when we're up against much larger, well-established, and well-organized groups/fandoms.
SUCCESSFUL charting on K-Music platforms requires many Atiny participating! We need ideally thousands of people to stream Ateez's songs hourly in order to chart high and get Digital points.
This is why it is very important for us to help with Digitals in any way we can.
TRENDING VS CHARTING
Sometimes Ateez has trended high in real-time searches on Melon, Bugs, Genie, etc., their songs appeared in K-Music sites Top 1000 or Rising Artist charts, etc. Unfortunately this is not the same kind of charting we need for Digitals (Genie Top 200, Melon/Bugs/Soribada Top 100). However, it is still a very positive thing, because it means a lot of people are looking Ateez up!
Mass searches done around comebacks can help real-time trend Ateez
and catch the general public's interest at that peak time.
