Can a complex technology make life simpler for creative people?

Welcome to Bloomen. In this project we want to explore future solutions – for rights management, for fair & secure compensation.

We are looking for answers to one big question: How could blockchain technologies help to compensate creative people for their work?

Musicians, writers, photographers, film makers  – they all create the bits and pieces that  make information offerings relevant and interesting. Yet, where are the platforms to compensate such work? So far, convergence to digital platforms has disrupted the income streams for many creators. How can we do better?

Finding answers is not easy. The technologies behind blockchains are in their early days. Right now, we witness a very fast, over-hyped development and speculation based on crypto currencies.

Bloomen follows the “blockchain before crypto” line of thought. We firstly want to explore the technology, then build early applications. For blockchains to become widely accepted we need more knowledge, stability, reliability. And ultimately: Security and trust.

Bloomen has defined three use cases to work on: Music, media content and WebTV. We will investigate, develop and evaluate new software and platforms. The goal is to contribute to concepts which are beneficial for all stakeholders. We will post outcomes and results on this page, step by step.

Bloomen started in September 2017 and has a duration of 36 months.
