Technology to tell big stories better.


Current projects (November 2017)


bloomen_logo Bloomen is about using blockchain technology for better media content management. Among other things, the project aims to explore wether it’s possible to tag *every* item produced and used by media with a small identifier (“hash”) — which would make the cumbersome job of handling intellectual properties and paying creators much easier.

The aim is to develop a flexible service layer that allows the distribution of content from various sources to different devices based on the consumption patterns and direct input from end-users.
