Event details

With a global value of $708 US million in 2017, research predicts that by 2024, the Blockchain will be worth a staggering $60.4 US billion. Besides the Blockchain’s most recognised application through cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, use cases for the Blockchain have increased in a number of industries.

 

One such example of a Blockchain use case is through the music industry. Smart contracts enable independent musicians to directly connect to listeners without the involvement of third parties.  Cutting out the middle player alleviates pressure around censorship, giving musicians full creative licence over their work. Listeners are able to influence the market directly through their own demand by allowing sales and profits to go straight to the artist.

 

Taking advantage of the Blockchain’s potential, how can you successfully build and scale a Blockchain product?

 

At our event, How to Build and Scale a Blockchain Product, our panelists will discuss:

 

  • What is the Blockchain and how Blockchain products can help different industries?
  • How to build and market a Blockchain product
  • The important principles to know when scaling a Blockchain product
