1:50pm: Transparency and payment flows in the music industry

Blockchain technology supplies instant transparency and a fresh payment model for the fresh generation of users, but what does it mean for the industry legacy data?

What exactly would the blockchain technology solve in the music industry?

And what would it require?

Jesse Feister, Co-founder & head of strategy, Songspace

Two:00pm: The fresh distributors

Will blockchain technology help artists monetise and control their music better? Will it help them ensure and validate platform payments? What are the requirements from the artists and how does collective distribution switch the existing system and competitive landscape?

Two:10pm: The Revelator use-case

How are artists, managers and labels already using blockchain technology via the Revelator user-interface, and what difference does it make on the bottom-line and for marketing and promotional purposes?

Bruno Guez, Founder & CEO, Revelator

What switches need to be made in order to assure a sustainable business environment for a commercial and viable music industry?

Trio:40pm: The publisher’s perspective and chance

There are few that fully understand the metadata challenges on the publishing side, fewer that understand modern technology stacks within that, and just a handful of people who can truly grip how blockchain will revolutionize this.” – Joe Conyers.

Moving from an existing legacy infrastructure to the blockchain chance – is it feasible, realistic and scalable? How will a distributed system supply better return-on-investment than a decentralized one?

Joe Conyers, VP Technology of Downtown Music Publishing and GM, VP of Songtrust

Three.50pm: The recording industry perspective

Being a relatively fresh technology solution, blockchain concentrates forward on resolving future distribution, revenues and disputes. Is retro-fitting past catalogue, data and legacy systems a realistic prospect? What are the hopes for and concerns about block chain type solutions for the music industry's myriad challenges?

David Hughes, SVP Technology, RIAA

Four.00pm: The blockchain influence on collecting societies

How would the evolution of blockchain technology affect collection societies who presently serve as trusted intermediaries inbetween users of digital music and rightsholders? Is there an incentive for rights management organizations to share their data with blockchain developers?

Michael Simon, President, Rumblefish

Four:10pm: Creating industry standards – rivaling blockchain platforms

Which blockchain technology platform is best suited for the music industry? Does it matter? Who is part of setting the industry standards? Should blockchain be part of the fresh proposed rights infrastructure by Spotify? And how do the limitations of blockchain technology influence its use by the music eco-system?

What is the role of the digital music service providers, as they are not the rights holders, what significant questions will be raised over authority, accuracy and inclusion?

Jesse Walden, Co-founder, Mine and Mediachain

Competition, trust, and consensus – is the music industry ready for transparency, truth, organization and clean data? What will spur on the switch, a disruptive startup, the digital music services, industry consensus or open system designs with active developer ecosystems working on media applications.
