Join us to learn how IBM Blockchain is transforming media, entertainment, and advertising.

What if we could wipe out waste and fraud in online advertising? Or take ticket buying away from scalpers and give it back to fans? Or make sure that artists are credited - and compensated - for their work?

We can - and we are. Discover how IBM Blockchain is bringing together entrepreneurs and established leaders to restore trust and transparency in media, entertainment, and advertising.
