What Is Cryptomedia?
Cryptomedia revolves around the concept that the innovation of crypto blockchains enables unrestricted access to media for all members of society (often called “the commons”). While also entitling the holder to benefits regarding the piece’s value. In Short, Cryptomedia means the media is free, allowing anyone to share or use it. Yet, the creator can still own media.
“Crytomedia captures the paradox that while an artistic work is allowed to be used freely, it is still valuable. People will still pay the original creator for the right to be the work owner. It is akin to owning a painting, but displaying it in a public gallery for free. The public enjoys it, but the creator/future owner can still buy and sell the ownership rights of the work.” -Zora
