(MENAFN Editorial) LiveTree ADEPT is the world's first completely transparent platform for end-to-end creation, funding and distribution of film and television.
London, November 21 2017 LiveTree ADEPT, the world's first community-powered film, TV and content network is set to disrupt the likes of Netflix's subscription service by decentralizing the entertainment industry.
Built on Ethereum blockchain technology, the new platform will create a new 'community powered marketplace for film and TV distribution. It will raise up to $50 million through a token sale commencing on Friday December 1st when a pre-sale of 35 million Seed Tokens (Symbol: SED) will take place. Visit for details.
LiveTree ADEPT is set to disrupt the $500bn entertainment industry using blockchain technology to empower consumers and industry professionals with key features including:
* Legal contracts involved in the production, financing and distribution of film, TV and content are often viewed as a burdensome and costly overhead. ADEPT replaces these contracts with blockchain based 'smart contracts. This reduces costs and fosters fan community gamification.
* Digital Token: The Ethereum ECR20 'LiveTree Seed digital token is set to replace subscription fees, legal fees and funding costs. The token encourages community growth by enabling fans to gamify the process of production, through sharing, participating and promoting the content they watch.
* Digital Rights Management: Owning and sharing video intellectual property will be moved to the blockchain. This opens possibilities for the general public to own what they watch and earn from profits derived from exploiting content distribution e.g. from subscriptions, pay-per-view, and advertising. New digital channel Blossom TV will be the destination for this community powered content.
LiveTree ADEPT has a 5-year roadmap to capture market share. In addition to the ADEPT community approach, LiveTree will license films specifically for ADEPT through LiveTree Incubators, fully funded by Seed. Incubators in LA, London and NYC will produce LiveTree Blossom TV 'Originals which will be used to further increase the value of the token, while promoting mainstream adoption of Blossom TV.
LiveTree's film, TV and content business captured 5% of the UK entertainment crowdfunding market in the last 2 years. It has established several high-profile partners including The British Film Institute, Red Rock Entertainment, the Screen Arts Institute, and 14,000 industry suppliers worldwide. The existing business will be migrated to LiveTree ADEPT.
