Ditto Music Is Launching An App Powered By (A Fast) Blockchain
"There's billions of dollars of unclaimed royalties out there," Parson said. "The blockchain can help millions of artists claim what is rightfully theirs."For those of you who don't know Ditto Music from the blockchain news, the company has paid out $100 million in royalties last year and now claims that a roster of 250,000 artists are behind it - including big names such as Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Royal Blood. Bluebox is designed to split royalty payments for a recording's lifetime and track the plays accurately on the system.Parsons argued that a solution like this creates more transparency and more detailed reporting, two of which are crucial features as to why Ditto Music is launching an app of this kind. As such, both of which should reap higher collection rates from digital services.Ditto claimed to promote “higher collection rates [while] massively reducing the loss of earnings currently experienced by artists.”“Aside from the billions of dollars in unclaimed royalties that Bluebox will be tackling, the Bluebox app will let creators lock in their split payments at the point of creation and get paid separately and accurately for each use of that song. It’s going to revolutionise payments across the music industry and help the millions of artists claim what is rightfully theirs,” the CEO and founder of Ditto Music Lee Parsons concluded.

Iran’s Government Grants More Than 1000 Crypto Mining Licenses
“The Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade has issued more than 1,000 licenses for cryptocurrency mining in the country.”Additionally, he also noted that the cryptocurrency mining industry has the potential to generate another $8.5 billion to the economy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, according to a certain new government study. But there are certain obstacles in achieving the goal, with the biggest being the high electricity costs that are facing miners in the country. As is wildly known a lot of computing power and electricity is needed for cryptocurrency mining. This is a huge obstacle and challenge for crypto miners in the Islamic Republic of Iran because only big firms can have the luxury to work, while smaller enterprises are forced to close.
“High electricity tariffs plus stringent regulations have made the sector less appealing for small investors.”Besides this the official from the ICT Guild Organization, Amir Hossein Saeedj Naeini noted that more discussions will be held in order favorable conditions are found for the cryptocurrency mining industry.
