Paperchain is exploring smart blockchain contracts


The blockchain-based music startups are coming thick and fast now: the latest is Paperchain, which we spotted yesterday.

The company is focusing on standardised metadata collection, storage and reporting for the music industry using blockchain tech.

“By creating a standard data format, Paperchain becomes a single source of truth for song metadata and rights reporting,” claims the company on its website.

“When a user plays a track, Paperchain runs the platform metadata against the database for validation. The song will only play if the metadata lookup returns a match. Transaction logs are made available to collection societies for royalty reporting.”

The Australian startup is using smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain platform for its service.
