Z-POP Dream Project, a South Korea based entertainment provider, plans to use blockchain technology to find the next K-pop talent and develop a new entertainment platform. K-pop is a form of South Korean popular music.

CEO Jun Kang, who played a key role in creating the company, wants to build a global entertainment ecosystem to support and discover new talent for the $46 billion global music business, according to Korea Herald.

Blockchain To Provide Transparency

Z-POP will use the Ethereum blockchain to enable fans to vote for their favorite entertainers in award ceremonies and auditions with more transparency, the company said. The project will discover and nurture talent, empower fans to support talent and develop talent into global stars.

The company plans to establish a “Star creation” platform that will include the Z-POP Dream Audition in 10 regions: Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, the Philippines, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Singapore. The platform will also include a “Star Academies.”

Kang said access to the global music stage will be more possible for artists seeking to demonstrate their talent.

The project has already created global K-pop acts including WannaOne, Girls’ Generation, BTS, Big Bank, 2NE1, Boa, TVXQ, EXO and PSY, according to its website.

This year, the project secured its first partnership with the People’s Television Network Inc., the Philippine’s state-owned TV broadcast station, and Viva Entertainment Inc.
