Over the past 20 years, musicians of all kinds have slowly but surely relinquished the ownership and rights to their content. Apple takes the lion’s share of iTunes profits, while streaming services like Spotify and Pandora have overtaken the music industry’s revenue streams, leaving artists with pennies on the dollar.

In other words, the platforms that give users access to the artists’ content are the breadwinners in the lucrative music sector. How does this all make sense? Shouldn’t the artists be getting the majority of profits while platforms earn small transaction fees?

Melanie Kramer of Blockchain Land wrote an article titled, Blockchain is Reshaping the Music Industry explaining blockchain’s perfect use case in the music industry. …

Can you tell us about your background and how you got involved in Elastos? How did you get to where you are now as Chief Architect? Compared to jobs you’ve taken before, how is the vision and work different or special for you?

The U.S. state and county governments are a bunch of sitting ducks.

Russia infamously attacked the U.S. presidential election in 2016 by hacking the voter database systems. And in a recent article about protecting the databases, Reuters profiled how U.S. Intelligence Officials and cybersecurity specialists plan to combat these hacks.

Ransomware has been the most prevalent and popular means to seize data and systems, and state and local governments have been the biggest target in these ransomware attacks.

Hackers have successfully infiltrated these systems and held them hostage in return for cryptocurrency in places such as Texas, Baltimore, and Atlanta. CISA (Cybersecurity Infrastructure Security Agency) is diligently working alongside election officials to protect their data and prevent ransomware attacks. …
