How was your talk meaningful for Blockchain Expo attendees?
“Not everyone knows how difficult it is for artists to monetize their content. There are barriers to entry, middlemen and accounting practices that diminish revenue streams. The term “starving artist” is real. I’ll explain how blockchain technology can smash barriers, cut out the middleman and add transparency so artists can start making money doing what they love.”
What specific tips or insights did attendees get?
“Tokens and smart contracts can maximize an artists revenue. I demonstrated how artists can tokenize themselves and their Intellectual property (IP). Then, I gave details on how they can use their tokens to manage their rights, royalties and revenue. I answered other questions too like; How do multiple participants share rights to content? How do Artists manage their rights over the years? What’s possible today and as blockchain technology evolves? All was revealed.”
Why did you decide to give this talk?
“SingularDTV’s founders launched the company because they were dissatisfied with the status quo. They discovered how blockchain can help content creators and wanted to improve the situation for all the unfulfilled independent artists out there. SingularDTV is dedicated to educating independent artists how to use blockchain to manage their own intellectual property (IP).”
