Publica’s Author Advisor, Sukhi Jutla, returned to the Olympia Hall in London, where Publica, earlier this year, attended the London Book Fair, to speak on the panel named “How ICOs are Revolutionising Start-Up Funding” at the London Blockchain Summit on Wednesday, 27th June.
The conference was attended by over 4000 people with over 100 events over the 2 days. The room where Sukhi spoke was filled to the brim roughly 200 people attended the panel!
Sukhi talked on the panel about how ICOs are revolutionising the start up funding scene. Sukhi talked about how authors are now operating as start-ups and can use ICOs as a source of start up-funding support.
The audience were amazed when Sukhi reminded them that the eBooks they buy from amazon and other stores don’t belong to them – you purchase only the license to read them – you don’t own them. Sukhi emphasised that Publica allows you to own your book and even better — gift copies away and buy multiple copies. Many had no idea authors could do book ICOs and said it would change the publishing landscape.
We at MarketOrders are also excited about how blockchain can be used in the gold jewellery market.
Stay tuned for more updates regarding blockchain and MarketOrders!
