Blockchain allows artists and creators to digitize the metadata of their unique content and manage and store IP rights on a time-stamped, immutable ledger. The append-only structure of a blockchain makes it easier for creators to legally enforce their rights once infringement occurs.
Content creators will be able to prove ownership of, and capture value from, their contributions to the platform. Users will be able to traverse unique areas of content, which can be clustered into districts, giving content creators targeted traffic and allow for spatial discovery of new content by users.
Decentraland is a decentralized, traversable, three-dimensional (3D), virtual reality platform being built on the Ethereum blockchain.
Enjin is a Singapore-based technology company that provides services for building gaming communities as well as services for blockchain game developers. Enjin provides a suite of tools based on a web interface that supports Ethereum digital assets in the form of ERC-1155 tokens.

Audius is a fully decentralized music streaming protocol built with public blockchain infrastructure and other decentralized technologies. Audius allows artists to distribute to and get paid directly from their fans, and is comprised of the following components: An efficient token economy powered by the Audius platform token ($AUDIO), 3rd-party stablecoins, and artist tokens.
A decentralized storage solution and ledger for sharing audio and metadata. A unique track encryption scheme paired with a programmable mechanism to unlock user-specific proxy re-encryption keys for content. A discovery protocol for users to efficiently query metadata. A decentralized governance protocol, whereby artists, node operators, and fans are individually and collectively enfranchised in decision making about protocol changes and upgrades.
Flow is a blockchain created by Dapper Labs that aims to make it easy for developers to build decentralized applications and businesses. Flow uses a multi-role architecture design to scale the network instead of sharding. One of the fundamental reasons Dapper Labs opted to shift away from Ethereum and build its own general-purpose blockchain was to avoid the complexity of sharding.
