HONG KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 30 August 2018 – Z-POP Dream Project (Z-POP Dream), a Korean Headquartered global entertainment platform is set to revolutionise the pop music industry through the use of Blockchain technology. They will be launching their Initial Token Offering (ITO) on October 1st 2018.
Founded by the same team that launched global Korean Pop (K-POP) sensations PSY, Girls’ Generation, BTS, EXO, and WannaOne, Z-POP Dream is the first of its kind that seeks to establish a global entertainment ecosystem to better discover hidden pop music talents. Using blockchain to accelerate a new star’s rise to stardom and creating a global token economy within the $46 billion global music market, this new ecosystem will be built hand-in-hand with millions of K-POP music fans across the world.
Z-POP Dream will be powered by hundreds of millions of K-POP music fans across the world through the use of the company’s own cryptographic token, the ZPOP coin, which will be based on the Ethereum blockchain platform.
Leading the Z-POP dream is Founder and CEO, Mr. Jun Kang, an SM Entertainment veteran who initiated the first wave of K-POP expansion into the international market and made significant contributions to the industry. The highly respected K-POP pioneer brings along a wealth of experience and is confident that blockchain technology can transform today’s inequitable music industry
The Z-POP Dream platform’s business model will focus on two key components. One, the proceeds from the Initial Token Offering (ITO) will be used to create infrastructure for this star creation business. Secondly, it will create a global online monetization platform, which will tokenize the revenue opportunities generated by the star creation business, including concert tickets, merchandise, online content and admission to exclusive events. By combining these two elements, a substantial part of the current $46 billion global music market opportunity will inevitably involve the Z-POP ecosystem and fuel it’s token economy. Z-POP Online will be open to both K-POP artists and fans and help to unite a broader audience and create a greater community.
“Through the Z-POP DREAM Project, we aim to create a new generation of Global Pop Stars through the power of the fans, to equalise the playing field and empower both fans and artists alike to better achieve their dreams. With our outstanding team of industry veterans and proven track record, breaching the global music stage will no longer be just a pipe dream for local artists aspiring to showcase their talent to the world,” says Mr. Jun Kang.
