Coincast TV interview: Why Linius is the future of video blockchain

How can blockchain create commercial opportunities for video content producers? Linius CEO, Chris Richardson, sat down with Coincast TV to discuss the potential of Linius' new video blockchain prototype.

“Linius is actually protecting and controlling video assets with the blockchain for the first time,” said Richardson.

"Linius has launched our blockchain prototype, built on top of our Linius Video Services API-based [SaaS] platform. It demonstrates and proves that we can actually put virtual video into the blockchain and control the asset.

"We virtualize video. We take video down to a fraction of a single percent of its original size, which allows us, and really only us, to embed that video directly in the blockchain, which makes it possible to use blockchain to control the video.

“Whether that's in terms of analytics and data and understanding what's happening [to the video when it's consumed], or creating whole new monetization models. You can use digital contracts to, for example, Incentivize viewers to share your assets and make [them] go viral.

"There's just a ton of new ways for content creators to make money with their content. It really enables a whole new world of monetization opportunities.”
