Put it on the blockchain! That was the cry at music industry conferences over the past couple of years, while industry veterans stood at the back of the room snickering. At Music Tectonics we are facing the tension straight on with a Blockchain Cage Match at our October 29 conference in L.A. Enthusiasts and skeptics will face off on stage. We announce the event on this episode featuring Vezt CEO Steve Stewart, who is not afraid to face the heat and who has come up with an interesting business model that uses blockchain to track investments by fans in artists’ songs. Meanwhile, Vezt does not require the rest of the industry to adopt blockchain for the business to function. Host Dmitri Vietze rapid-fires skeptical questions and Stewart bats them away with grace and agility. We thought the industry skeptics might win the cage match, but now we're not so sure. Tune in to see where you land, then come to the conference to see the Cage Match in action.
