Entering a Crypto Renaissance
As the world of blockchain develops, more and more tools are becoming available for people and professionals of all walks of life to take advantage of crypto-powered resources. Just over the last two years, an arsenal of decentralized applications (or DApps) have made it possible for creative individuals to earn cryptocurrency through the tokenization of written content, music, videos, vlogs, and much more. On The Creative Crypto, we have already begun covering the various technologies that are both available today and accessible in the near future. The projects we report on are exciting tools that seek to transform the nature of creative production as the future of information becomes more liberated, transparent, and individually empowering. Many around the world have already begun to utilize these tools with great success.
So, as a consistent way to bring these works to the forefront, we will be presenting our bi-monthly (the twice-a-month kind of bi-monthly) “Blockchain-Powered Content to Keep an Eye On” – a compilation of inspiring content that has been shared on a DApp. These will include articles on Steemit.com, videos on DLive, artwork on CreativeChain, streams from Rize, podcasts on DSound, and many more.
For our initial overlook of “The State of Crypto Creativity in 2018,” refer to our earlier article here.
