In his important forthcoming book, Marcus O’Dair leads the way in defining what blockchain and distributed ledger technologies will mean for the creative sector. Looking beyond the hype surrounding Initial Coin Offerings and speculation over the volatility of cryptocurrencies, a huge transformation is occurring in the way we operate businesses of all kinds and in how we capture and share value in an online world. Marcus’s work is a thoughtful, well-researched and balanced assessment of the notion of ‘distributed creativity’ and its implications for policymakers as well as for one of Britain’s most important economic sectors. Marcus will be launching the book, speaking about and debating his findings with a panel of experts at this afternoon event.
