Track C: Blockchain and the Media Industry: New Business Models and New Challenges

Thu. October 18| 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM | Location: 3D10

The media industry faces challenges in content monetization and is seeking new revenue models and bundling options that can help them win market share. Blockchain technology has the potential to improve these issues but blockchain-based systems also bring new challenges in user adoption, scalability, and reliability. This session will discuss how decentralized video platforms and delivery protocols can change the incentives involved, so that each stakeholder (viewers, platforms, content creators, and distributors) can realize compensation relative to the value they contribute.
