Giving Control Back to the Artist Using Blockchain

In this week’s episode of Be About It, I traveled all the way to NYC to meet with Beatriz Helena Ramos, CEO and Founder of Dada. I originally met her a few weeks ago at the Matter.vc Demo Day. I was blown away by her perfect articulation of the problem she’s solving and how she is using blockchain to solve it. As a artist herself, she knows how little value of the products artists create return back to the artists themselves. She is building the Dada application on blockchain to stop that.

Check out it out below and let me know what you think!

Thanks as always to my producer, Rachel Jones. You can find her on twitter @racheljones2014. Artwork above is courtesy of artists on the Dada platform.
