Blockchain in the Music Industry: Art and Technology Connection

Today, June 21 is a national Music Day in France, a country that aims to become a leader in fintech industry of Europe. Needless to say that Paris hosts one the most interesting summer events in cryptosphere, Blockchain & Bitcoin Conference France. But where’s the link between music and blockchain?

Today DLT is not only applied to financial sphere – it is used in the music industry as well. How can technology and art be connected? Take a look at the guide below.

How blockchain improves music industry:

  • Direct Interaction
    With decentralized technology musicians can interact with their audience directly and sell their art works without any mediators.
  • Global Database
    A traditional industry lacks an important feature – united global database with information aboutmusic authors and their recordings. Because of this, artists may stay unknown even if their music is being distributed. Blockchain solves the problem by providing a complete decentralized database.
  • Fair Revenues
    Companies and labels owning copywrites don’t always provide musicians with correct revenues. However, with DLT and smart contracts, money distribution is fair as the compensation paid to specific artist or a band manager is pre-determined.
  • Security
    The content on decentralized platforms is secured against hacks and illegal usage.
  • Crowdfunding
    Getting money for development of art projects is easier with the token sales.
