PUBLIQ’s active involvement in the New Age of Media
Every year, more than 600 delegates from 60 countries gather for the Eurasian Media Forum, one of the biggest international discussion platform about the state of the media industry and its latest trends. This year the Forum took place from the 22nd to the 24th of June 2017 in Astana, Kazakhstan.
Alexandre Tabbakh, CEO of PUBLIQ, participated to the “DIGITAL REVOLUTION” focus along with Matej Michalko, the co-founder, and CEO of DECENT. Other representatives from CNN, APCO Worldwide, China M&A Association, the European Commission, Eurasia Foundation and Forbes were present and had the opportunity to learn more about the fair and secure distributed media ecosystem PUBLIQ introduces.
A significant emphasis was made on the positive impacts the implementation of blockchain based distributed platforms will have on the media ecosystem. Among these impacts the reestablishment of the balance of power and the empowerment of authors and readers were mentioned. The participation of PUBLIQ allowed to introduce to very experienced and qualified media participants, a new vision of a censorship-free ecosystem rewarding those who provide quality content to the world. Indeed, PUBLIQ offers a unique experience where the wealth generated is fairly and exclusively distributed to the network participants based on their participation, and reputation made from the feedbacks of readers.
The Forum offered an open dialogue as well as created new inspirations and connections between the largest media institutions in the world and emerging startups. Different opinions and visions about the media industry were shared and actively discussed.
PUBLIQ managed to build awareness about the capabilities the smart usage of blockchain will have on our society and our future approach towards news and media in general. The process of educating the industry about the power of new technologies is essential to generate a significant adoption.
