Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


At the #MTFBerlin conference in May 2016, Music Tech Fest brought together a diverse group including some of the world’s leading experts in blockchain technology, cryptography, metadata, music business, songwriting rights and royalties - representing artists, online music services, financial tech and other interests. Over the course of five days leading up to the festival, and in response to a lot of industry interest, public discourse and hype, this group examined, experimented and debated in order to explore ways in which blockchain technology could help improve the music industry. The result was a whitepaper that maps out both the bene fits and drawbacks of how an actual implementation might distribute among industry players and stakeholders - from artists to audiences and all of the many intermediaries.
