Bandnamevault boss responds to Dot Blockchain criticism

There currently is no central register of band names anywhere in the world. This means that when a band starts out, it’s difficult for them to establish if the name they want to use is in use, or has been previously used by another band.

Google is a great tool to help identify this, but sometimes the results are confusing as it’s difficult to refine any search of a name to specific use as a band name.

Dot Blockchain boss criticises ‘opportunistic’ Bandnamevault

Benji Rogers, founder of Dot Blockchain, has termed the arrival of Bandnamevault – a company claiming to offer the first practical application of blockchain within the music industry – as both “opportunistic” and a “land grab”.

Speaking at the BIME conference in Bilbao, Rogers criticised the new platform as severely lacking. “I think it is extremely opportunistic,” he said. “I think if you are saying the first implementation of the blockchain is to register a band’s name, I will want to know what proof you are using to do that. And I want to know with what authority you can claim to place that in the blockchain.”

What Disney Actually Wants to Achieve With its Own Blockchain

Disney has come up with a multicurrency-capable Blockchain. This perhaps is the interesting part of the Blockchain. In the Dragonchain architecture draft, they say, “This architecture should be multi-currency capable. That is, generally that if a currency use case is defined, that a node(s) may define a currency and support its use.

More than one currency may be in use concurrently on the network as a whole.”Since Dragonchain is multicurrency-enabled it might even help Disney price its products and services in multiple currencies for visiting foreign tourists at its parks. It is also conceivable that it might help the company expand to other foreign locations easily as well.
