PUBLIQ on stage 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 at the center of the attention of a multi – stakeholder “Blockchain Distributed Media” event. The event provided with a unique platform of dialogue where the future of media as a peer-to-peer distributed ecosystem of readers, independent authors and the society at large was discussed.

A keynote describing the state of the online media industry as well as a detailed explanation of the fair and distributed reward ecosystem implemented by PUBLIQ was performed by Alexandre Tabbakh, CEO of PUBLIQ. Apart from the deep insight about PUBLIQ, a panel discussion took place to speak about the overall disruptive impact of blockchain towards media. The panel was led by: Matej Michalko – CEO & Founder of DECENT, Emma Arakelyan - Managing Director of Accenture, Gagik Yeghiazaryan – CEO & Co-founder of Blockchain R&D Hub, Alexandre Tabbakh – CEO of PUBLIQ and Jacob Yahiayan – Managing partner at Continental Advisory Services, who was moderating the panel.

Top managers and executives from Google, Accenture, Barclays, HSBC, PepsiCo, Forbes, NYSE, Harvard Alumni Entrepreneurs, and others joined the forum and actively participated to the event and Q&A sessions.

During this 5 days trip to New York, the PUBLIQ team also announced the establishment of a presence at the New York Media Center in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The involvement of PUBLIQ into the New York media scene will allow the team to raise awareness with the publishing scene of the US as well as represent a new wave of digital media platform.

The next step for PUBLIQ is to share its vision in Astana on the 23rd of June during the XIV Eurasian Media Forum, where worldwide media representants will be present.
