Content distribution with blockchain
Blockchain has found many uses outside the financial realm including content distribution. Through the blockchain and its ability for secure transactions, it has offered a new way for creators to share their content, disrupting the old systems. Previously content creators would: Produce their work An intermediary would take it, host it, sell ads, and take part of the revenue The creator then receives the remaining money But piracy has been a major issue in the space, so content creators not only get less money but cannot assure their work would be safe. Blockchain can replace the intermediary by giving the creator the ability to register, license, and distribute their content in a secure and traceable way. They can earn a fair valuation and cut out piracy through transparent transactions.
