Is Soundcloud going to disappear?

L.S.,

Recently, I read in numerous tweets and articles that Soundcloud will
shut down in 50 days (counted from the - to me unknown - first publishing date) because of financial issues.
Is this true?
If yes, is it possible to export my saved/liked/playlisted music to Excel or something of the like ?
It would be a shame if the rumours turn out to be true.

Thanks in advance,

Hey everyone,

There’s an insane amount of noise about SoundCloud in the world right now. And it’s just that, noise. The music you love on SoundCloud isn’t going away, the music you shared or uploaded isn’t going away, because SoundCloud is not going away. Not in 50 days, not in 80 days or anytime in the foreseeable future. Your music is safe.

Along with each of you, we’ve built this incredible creative community of artists, podcasters, DJs, producers and more who are the driving force in pushing culture forward in the world. That’s not going to change. Last week we had to make some tough decisions to let go of some of our staff, but we did this to ensure SoundCloud remains a strong, independent company.

Thank you for the outpouring of love and support. Some of you have asked how you can help–spread the word that we’re not going anywhere and keep doing what you’re doing–creating, listening, uploading, sharing, liking, and discovering what’s new, now and next in music. SoundCloud is here to stay.

Peace,
Alex

Hope not
That would suck. Soundcloud is what I started my music career on 😞
Then again, I also heard that there was this rapper who decided he's going to donate a lot f cash to keep Soundcloud alive, for the same reason as @Ominous I believe.
But I can't seem to find any official statements.
from all I've read.. I'd suggest diversifying your bonds. there are tons of SC alternatives out there and I highly suggest checking them out.

i wouldn't call it noise when so many articles are talking about it... i must have read like 5 different views on it, just in that first night. Not to mention the people that got let go from the san francisco office talking about it in interviews.

Now, it may be here to stay... but that's not saying it's a viable source of organic music like it once was.. but of course, I'll take all that with a grain of salt, since SC can't even have someone help users locked/hacked/spammed/etc, how can they compete in a market that is all about communication? ... but hey, go ahead.. keep selling nelly's 2002 album on the front page... that'll save you from your money woes SC...
