Spotify CEO Daniel Ek has refuted claims that users can manipulate the platform's royalty payment structure by listening to a 30-second track on a loop. This comes amid concerns about criminal gangs using Spotify's royalty system to launder money from drug deals. The platform uses a complex algorithm to determine artist payouts, which has led to calls for a more transparent payment model.
