nIn the mid-1990s, the expansion of the Internet contributed to decades of innovation, including e-commerce, social media platforms, smart devices and streaming media services. But the Internet has also brought us a lot of very complex issues, such as “false news”, “hacking” and those who have to artists, musicians, filmmakers and writers to obtain the appropriate recognition and compensation platform gradually decline “and so on Then
nA culture that does not reward works of art hardly gives people any power to invest in art, which can lead to stagnation in social development. While the emerging block chain technology will allow the value of exchange, attribution and tracking, these factors are likely to promote contemporary literary rehabilitation. We are at the turning point of cultural innovation, like the impressive time of the invention of the printing press in the middle of the fifteenth century.n

nArt appreciationn
nArt appreciation depends on the exposure of the cultural industry; but in order to make the art industry flourish, the cultural industry must also recognize and reward the artist’s contribution. The Internet can make a lot of artwork so that more people know, but the establishment of the reward and the right system is very lacking. In reality, if an artist chooses to share a work on a website or social media platform, anyone can republish, share, screenshots, download and redesign the work for their own use. After multiple sharing, downloading and re-use, the original content creator’s name is no longer associated with these works. In addition, the original content creator in all the original was modified and re-spread of the process, did not get any reward.n
nBlock-chain technology can provide some solutions. For example, Ascribe uses the Bitcoin block chain to safely record the ownership of the visual arts work and track the transaction process. Artists can digitally authorize their work to arrive at a consistent price and authorization time so that artists do not have to worry about losing ownership when they share and present their work.n
nThe right to work of art and the issue of compensation, as well as the potential of providing solutions with block-chain technology, is not limited to visual arts. The music industry faces similar challenges in tracking the use of songs and getting paid for musicians. Singer and songwriter Imogen Heap founded Mycelia to use the digital block chain for copyright management and payment of the cost of the license. Heap insists that the rise of Internet streaming services has made the concept of paid music obsolete, but at the same time, many musicians still rely on this mechanism to make a living. Like Visual Arts, few people will think about who’s original, and music is often used repeatedly on YouTube, presentations, and personal websites.n
nIn an article published in the Harvard Business Review, Heap explained this to the block chain technology. “Anybody who participates in a song play or trade – whether it’s a fan or a DSP (digital service provider Spotify or iTunes Etc.), or a radio, or a movie producer, will automatically trigger an agreement for every song.n
nIn the case of point-to-point switching system networks based on block-chain technology, original musicians are free to show and share their songs without having to meet the streaming industry giants.n

nFrom Leonardo da Vinci to N.W.A.n
nThroughout history, art has always been a new way of thinking, new ideas and new knowledge. Think of the cultural influence of Bob Dylan or n.w.a, imagine what if the future of the world without Salvador Dali or Andy Warhol. We need artists to challenge deep-rooted traditional thinking patterns and bring new interpretations to them. The lack of a secure value exchange, tracking and attribution mechanism makes it difficult for artists to thrive in the digital age, but block-like start-ups like Ascribe and Mycelia are changing this situation. Through the establishment of a system that allows artists to earn money and to provide credit for their work, the chain-chain entrepreneurs are laying the groundwork for a new era of artistic and cultural prosperity.n
