We have updated the Proof of Concept (POC) on the IPFS blockchain under The Content Cloud CaaS (Content as a Service – WIP: Work In Progress) concept.
And we are proactively looking for CDN partners!

The music is streamed from the IPFS blockchain, and all you can see here (music, videos, pictures and code) is stored on the same blockchain with the hash address QmTwiJVqufeCgcNkYUmcMyKEJJkxKLKSvpeDJQu7Fgmead.
Where registration and trade of Copyrights is regarded as disintermediation , registration and distribution of physical files can be regarded as disruptive (The Orchard charges 18% fee where NIM/partners charges 4%) on top of which the DSP can stream directly to subscribers from our CDN and only pay a minor fee (around 1%).
We have added a download service with payment in CopyrightCoins (CCIM) that we have to host on an external URL (the same as the demo at STIM in September) due to strict security for payment gateways.
However, we are (as always) working on a reporting and payment service for use directly from the IPFS blockchain ecosystem based on streaming user-centric licensing (1 stream – 1 license – 1 royalty payment).
Not only legally (and regulated) by applying for a license, but also attaching the physical music file from our CaaS (Content as a Service), all within 5 to 15 seconds at any of our White Label partners.
To comply with any and all regulated use of our DeFi (Decentralized Finance) and FinTech (Financial Technology) services we have implemented as a KYC/AML solution operation out of IPFS (instantly accessible from all over the world). The KYC/AML solution (provided py PassBase) is given an extra layer of security as it is operated out of the IPFS (when in private blockchain configuration).
The NIM approach is not a purely technical solution. It’s more of a regulated/legislated combined with the technology of blockchain. Using music as an example, and simply by using our exclusive administration right, all music that’s in out CaaS (Content as a Service) is “protected” by the simple fact that if it is available outside the CaaS, it’s pirated.
So not only will registration of copyright and the consequently recording right be forever embedded in the ledger know as The CopyrightChain, but the distribution of the actual release WhenTheMoonComesUp.mp3 is forever identified (QmSTUzeRAwe6xqELGmb7m5GqZHGBU5iFyyE1cWNzJVYw1F) and every other release likewise uniquely identified.
Or rather for DSPs that uses the CopyrightChain sub-chain CopyrightCoins to buy CCIMs used to get the license (permit) to present the physical file WhenTheMoonComesUp.mp3 to the end-user.
- It’s a repository for all types of content starting with music
- It’s a Content Delivery service
- It’s a Distributed files system that can function as a Digital rights management service
