3 Ways Tron Can Use Blockchain to Transform

The Universe of Digital Entertainment The market total for digital entertainment products is currently valued at a cool trillion dollars. And as you read this, the industry is underway for a multitude of radical solutions through the implementation of blockchain technology. Some major services blockchain provides are facilitation of copyright law – which helps everyone, big and small, as well as fair content monetization for artists, gamers and musicians.


Many of them may soon earn a liveable wage off their craft for the first time due to the booming technology’s employment. Wrapped up in one convenient package, Tron is a blockchain-based digital entertainment system, and here are three avenues by by ICO CROWD which it can use blockchain to revolutionize the industry. 1.
