Outlanders Productions will be testing a pilot project on tour: blockchain-based supply chain for the event industry.
Scarlet Aura – Romanian female fronted melodic rock/metal band is currently touring the Europe with their “The Beast Within Me 2017 – 2018 Tour”. In February/March the band will tour with 24 dates across Europe supporting Italian symphonic metal legends Rhapsody.
On this tour, their Finnish label Outlanders Productions will be testing a pilot project together with the band: blockchain-based supply chain for the event industry. In contrast to other blockchain based projects, Outlanders Productions uses a business-oriented blockchain without need for cryptocurrencies.
Blockchain technology has been populating the news for the past few months. In essence, blockchain allows for a digital marketplace that is decentralized, yet tamper-proof. The transactions are recorded in chronological order, transparent to the participants and encrypted at the same time. This prevents any changes in the transactions after they are encrypted in a block. Blockchain is envisioned to disrupt media and event industries, especially those managing the royalty payments.
The pilot project is set to test logistics of physical CD distribution and automation of payments between label, artists and customers (fans) and aims to solve problems of copyright management, piracy. It is meant to offer fast and transparent payments for the artists. This is one of Outlanders Productions approaches to develop the blockchain-leveraged platform as a service, which is used to distribute physical and digital assets, track illegal assets distribution and to manage and process payments in a fast and transparent fashion directly between consumers and artists / creators. It is specially aimed at independent emerging musicians and artists / creators .
Outlanders Productions’ Digital Distribution & Technology Director and Scarlet Aura manager Dr. habil. Tatyana E. Shubina will be available for interviews and inquiries anytime via e-mail and in person on the day of the show.
