For many of us that have been with Ethereum from the start or with bitcoin/altcoins before Ethereum, it feels like we’re beginning the crossover from the innovation phase into early adoption of blockchain technologies. This first wave of adoption is being felt through the administering of token launches and tokenization. I’ve heard many say they feel the entire token launch/ICO phenomenon will become saturated soon. I profoundly disagree. As the multi-billion dollar cryptosphere grows, so will token launches. ICOs may phase themselves out, but token launches are just beginning. Click the following link if you’re interested in the “Difference Between an ICO and a Token Launch”. On a side note… it’s good to see many recovering bitcoin maximalists start to jump on the Ethereum/token bandwagon. ;-)
If token launches and tokenization represent the first great phase of adoption, then the production and release of blockchain applications — specifically Ethereum applications —should be the result of this.
SingularDTV has been working on tokenized ecosystems and tokenization since early 2014, and are happy to be ahead of the curve — we’re releasing 5 of our 11 applications this year in 2017.
The week of May 22nd, 2017 marked a new phase for the SingularDTV team. We flew our team from China, South America, Europe and from around the US to join us in NYC. Check out the group pic below. We also brought artists from around the world to demo our first two applications, Tokit (Module #1) and Launch Pad (Module #4). Tokit is our rights management and project creation application. Launch Pad is our project funding application. As outlined in “Be Your Own Economy”, SingularDTV’s entertainment economy is made up of 11 different modules/applications.
This week (May 29, 2017) marks the beginning of launch preparations for us. It’s looking like 8 weeks from now Tokit and LaunchPad will go live. The above photo is the set we built in a sound stage in NYC where these artists demo’d our applications. It was a great experience, as our c0-founder, President of Entertainment and lead producer — Kim Jackson — put her talent and experience to work assembling the crew that designed, built and managed our beautiful set. She also brought high profile talent to present and demo our apps. Our editors are putting together all the footage we shot, and we’ll be releasing this footage when our apps launch in July/August.
The success of SingularDTV is heavily dependent upon the team we’ve created and I’ve never worked with a more harmonious and positive crew. We look forward to launching our apps and art and artists empowered with their own tokenized ecosystems and tokens.
