Blockchain for Distributed Media in New York
On the 16th of June 2017, at the One World Trade Center’s state of the art ONE WORLD COMMONS, the PUBLIQ Foundation was the key participant and organizer of the first “Blockchain Distributed Media” event in New York.
Blockchain has the true potential to transform various industries. The media industry is currently encountering the lowest level of trust in its history, and represents an environment where unfair and inexistent wealth distribution are common practices.
PUBLIQ Foundation is carrying the flag of a new hope for media, enabling censorship free generation, selection, and assessment of content. The vision is clear: creating a free blockchain powered distributed media environment, where the wealth generated is fairly and exclusively distributed to the network participants. The PUBLIQ Foundation also implements a unique and smart incentivisation workflow for authors to provide quality content to the world.
Alexandre Tabbakh, the CEO of PUBLIQ, delivered a detailed keynote where he explained the current state of the online media industry and introduced the game-changing vision of the PUBLIQ Foundation.
After the keynote, a panel discussion about the disruptive effect of blockchain on media, was led by Matej Michalko – CEO & Founder of DECENT, Emma Arakelyan - Managing Director at Accenture, Gagik Yeghiazaryan – CEO & Co-founder at Blockchain R&D Hub, Alexandre Tabbakh – CEO of PUBLIQ, and Jacob Yahiayan – Managing partner at Continental Advisory Services, who was moderating the panel.
The atmosphere was cordial and open to fruitful discussions. Managers and executives from Google, Accenture, Barclays, Bank of China, HSBC, Blackrock, IBM, PepsiCo, Forbes, NYSE, Harvard Alumni Entrepreneurs, and other professionals from various industries were attending and actively participating to the event by engaging in the discussion before, during and after the event.
