When it comes to how the music enthusiast listens to your album do you prefer, they buy or stream and why?

I prefer they buy whether it’s a physical cd or download, things that are tangible are more valuable than just being able to stream. If you spend your money on an item its more likely to be listened to or used or shared with others.  

I also appreciate the aspects of steaming my music as well and appreciate that my fans enjoy my music any way they can listen to me.
