On a comparable basis the Apple Music service has 46 million subscribers.

For the big labels, the question of whether - and when - to sell their Spotify equity ties in with a potential risk when it comes to dealing with their artists.

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek who founded the company, emerged as the day's biggest victor.

Spotify stock ended its second day of trading at $145.87 down $4.79 or 2.11%.

Leading up to the listing, Spotify had disclosed price history of trading of its private shares, in order to establish its market value ahead of the listing.

Spotify is still not profitable to this day.

Spotify has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus) with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") relating to its ordinary shares.

While trading went better than expected for Spotify on its first day, the NYSE mistakenly hung up the Swiss flag instead of the Swedish flag in honor of the company's IPO.

Putin, Erdogan launch construction of Turkey's nuclear plant
Putin asserted that Russian partners would encourage Turkey's small- and medium-scale companies to participate in this project. But Putin refused to discuss the issue saying "these are exclusively commercial questions" rather than political ones.

Spotify isn't selling any shares and there's no lockup period for company insiders or, with one exception, current shareholders.

"Spotify's going to have to get used to market volatility and getting dragged down (or pushed up) by other companies in their general space". However, the direct listing will be carefully analyzed by other companies that intend to become public, as well as by investment bankers who may lose millions of IPO fees.

Spotify soared to a value of more than $26 billion in its long-awaited stock debut on Tuesday and achieved a valuation among the top U.S. tech listings.

Personal details stored online are being hacked and then sold off - allowing the purchaser to access someone's subscription to Spotify for a tiny fraction of the above-board pricetag, says the Dark Web Market Price Index.

Amazon Music Unlimited has an estimated 16 million paying subscribers and Pandora has 5.48 million total subscribers.

"The similarities here, we believe, are much greater than the differences", RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Mahaney wrote in a recent research note assessing the parallels between Spotify and Netflix.

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek declined an invitation to ring the opening bell at NYSE.
