Blockchain brings a new day to media, entertainment and advertising

Digital media has changed the world for consumers, artists and brands — yet major business problems persist. The United States economy loses USD 12.5 billion in total output each year from online music theft.¹ The potential for fraud has become more prevalent with the growth of online ticket sales compounding at a rate of 19% annually. And online advertising fraud costs companies at least USD 19 billion annually.²
