This talk examines some of the emerging business models that have embraced blockchain technologies, how blockchain satisfies challenges for media, and how to spur growth and further media consumption with greater control.
Streaming technologies disrupted our ideas of how consumers tune in, listen, and watch, and yet we are still far from perfect in terms of distribution, access, and profitability for content creators. These business models are now again ripe for disruption. Blockchain technology was initially lauded for its revolutionary way of handling financial transactions, but it can be used for far more. Ethereum, NEO, and other decentralized ledgers can make bigger waves in the future by enabling developers to build applications and platforms that bolster the sharing economy.
