In this is a special bonus episode, I sit down with Noël Jackson to discuss the world of blockchain, NFTs, Web 3.0 and the potential impact these things could have on music and the arts. Noël is an artist, music producer, and mastering engineer, as well as a computer engineer, UX designer, and hacker. We chat through the basics of what blockchain, smart contracts and cryptocurrencies are and then work into the implications they could have on music royalties, ownership, and how transparency leads to the sustainability of the arts.
In this episode we'll dig in on...
How blockchain can reinvent the record store
Mining Bitcoin with volcanos
Smart contracts implications in music and art
