NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2017 — The World Economic Forum estimated that the creative industry generates $2,250 billion in revenue annually and is responsible for creating of 29.5 million jobs globally. This industry spans 11 cultural sectors and employs a large number of youths and females. Today, the Ink Foundation seeks to revolutionize the trillion-dollar industry through their application of the Ink Sovereign Consortium Blockchain, IP Asset Exchange and Cross-chain Protocol.
Any cultural product, be it a piece of music or a book, can be classified as the intellectual property (IP) of the original creators. Traditional IP distribution channels have been confronting various challenges, such as unclear ownership, inadequate data authenticity, unfair distribution of proceeds, difficulty in converting IP into liquid assets and inefficiency of the infrastructure in the industry to maintain a healthy ecosystem. The ink platform offers the answer to these long-standing obstacles.
The Ink Sovereign Consortium Blockchain provides an immutable ledger system which ensures clear ownership of the IP. This eliminates disputes among content creators and allow them to convert their IP assets into liquid assets easily. The Ink platform supports the conversion efforts through an 'IP Asset Exchange Platform' whereby content creators can launch their IP content to a massive global market.
The platform opens up the market for content creators and allows them to access a wider audience who would appreciate their art instead of being limited to those in their immediate networks. For content creators who need to raise funds for their project, the Ink platform also provides a cost-effective method for them to convert their IP assets into liquid asset.
Fans can also participate in trading the IP assets through the Ink platform. The application of a key technology of blockchain, known as smart contract, can enable fans to be part of the IP asset trading activities. Owners and fans can therefore trade the IP asset like any liquid asset in the financial market.
Ink Cross-Chain Technology — Bridging Local Production with Global Market
While content creators want to sell their products globally, they have to adhere to local regulations and cultural norms of various countries. The business process and technical aspects differ from country to country. This means that country-specific customization must be incorporated into the blockchain design.
Ink have launched 'Sovereign Consortium Blockchain' for China, South Korea, Thailand and other countries. They are in the advanced stages of their product launch in the United States and the European Union. Once content is produced and secured by the local sovereign consortium blockchain, it would pass into the proprietary 'Ink Cross-chain Protocol' to reach various public blockchains.
This would allow the content to be traded through the blockchain globally. It took CEO Tang Ling, Chief Scientist Chen Chang and a team of dedicated experts in various fields years to test and develop this full suite of blockchain solution. The technology is set to revolutionize the creative industry.
