WHY BLOCKCHAIN

Berklee rethink and blockchain dreams

The blockchain hype went public in July 2015 with “Fair Music: Transparency and Payment Flows in the Music Industry,” a report from the Rethink Music initiative at the Berklee College of Music’s Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship.

The problems it outlines are well-known and widely acknowledged:

  • Who owns what is frequently not traceable at all. “20-50 percent of music payments don’t make it to their rightful owners.” Music collection societies tried to create a Global Repertoire Database in the early 2010s, but scrapped the idea in 2014, as nobody wanted to create a new central octopus.
  • Existing industry money flows are an unbelievably complicated mess that’s barely understood by most participants.
  • Middlemen take money without any reasonable present-day justification.
  • Record and publishing companies deliberately obscure what they owe and who they owe it to, and pay very slowly.
  • Streaming doesn’t pay nearly as well as CDs used to. (That last problem is not like the others, but keeps being spoken of like it is.)

A blockchain is a digital ledger which is shared with a network of computers using advanced cryptography. Transaction records cannot be faked, counterfeited or double spent as networks of computers are keeping track of any movements of data simultaneously. Blockchain technology also uses tokenization which ensures that information within each transaction cannot be hacked. Data and records are thus securely stored in a blockchain. For example, if a server is down or data has been corrupted, the backup data is instantly available.

Soundblock uses blockchain technology where data is being kept in a digital ledger of transactions which can be shared with other networks of computers by using advances cryptography. Each transaction is under a logic of tokenisation, and only the sending and receiving parties can view the full details of data.
Also, Soundblock partners with the world’s leading DDOS Protection Service and Hosting Providers to minimize impact from DDOS attacks, as well as applying the most advanced firewall and intrusion alert applications to prevent and detect unauthorized activities.

Blockchain delivers security measures such as two-factor security setting, SMS (mobile device) password messaging and YubiKey’s two-factor authentication. By default, users will be notified of each successful login via e-mail and each transfer will need final confirmation via e-mail approval. Users will also be notified of any movements of digital assets via e-mail.

Immutable ledger system(once a record is written it cannot be deleted or modified

  • Data is stored on PCI and HIPPA compliant cloud systems (also FedRAMP certified)
  • Advanced Cryptography

"It's a disagreement that I've always had with Spotify…

they’re saying, you can never get rid of piracy; and that’s the reason we can charge .00000 nothing for a song and completely devalue music. Then you have blockchain technology coming around, and you say, ‘Ah, now we’re able to kind of reverse that process,’ when it comes to licensing music.”

- Lupe Fiasco

“It’s about trying to take away the power from top down and give power...

or at least a steering, to the artist who inherently wants to shape their own future,”

- Imogen Heap

"It's time for a major change in the music industry!

Blockchain developers, we need your help to empower artists worldwide.”
