Blockchain Technology Transforming Film and Music

Founded in 2016 as SingularDTV, Breaker launched its artist-driven blockchain-powered entertainment DApp in January 2019. Breaker’s co-founder and President of Entertainment Kim Jackson talks with film director Keith Bearden (Guggenheim Fellow in Filmmaking) and DJ Spooky (Billboard chart topper with his latest album Phantom Dancehall) about the intersection of blockchain and entertainment. Transparency, the main component of blockchain, ensures total control over rights, revenue and royalties, and a direct relationship with their fans. Join the discussion about how blockchain can empower artists.
