SingularDTV, a blockchain entertainment studio and rights management platform building a decentralized entertainment industry on the Ethereum blockchain, is moving forward with plans for a science fiction TV series about how decentralization will bring new systems that guide the world into the next level of human evolution, having tabbed writer/director Michael Blieden as a consulting producer to advise the company on its launch event taking place in Q2 of 2017.
Blieden has worked on television programs such as “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine for Fox,” “Sirens” for USA, “Up All Night” for NBC, as well as live specials for comedians Zach Galifianakis and Joe Rogan, in addition to music videos for Fiona Apple and Kanye West.
“We’re thrilled to have Blieden on board,” said Zach LeBeau, SingularDTV’s CEO. “His experience and energy are extremely valuable and we look forward to great things to come. He’s also a big supporter of Ethereum and even requested to be paid in ether.”
SingularDTV is entering all facets of the entertainment industry from funding to sharing, according to its website. It has a rights royalty and management platform that provides transparency. This platform can give content creators control over their creative output.
SingularityDTV was built in partnership with ConsenSys and MME, a cryptocurrency law firm. SingularityDTV’s smart contract system is the first to place its intellectual property in the form of television, film and software projects on the Ethereum blockchain.
SingularDTV’s documentary film division creates feature documentary films and short documentary series about blockchain technology, Ethereum and decentralization. The documentaries are geared to the uninitiated. They aim to educate all generations about the Ethereum world computers and decentralization.
The first documentary is called “Ethereum: The World Computer,” focusing on why the technology exists. It shows several use cases on why blockchain technology and Ethereum are making improvements.
The smart contract distributes revenue and other representations of its intellectual property on its SNGLS token. Developers Milad Mostavi of Digital Mob, Stefan George of Gnosis and Joseph Chow of BTC Relay developed the SingularDTV smart contract.
Mostavi noted that the team focused on simplicity in its contract with less edge cases and fewer attack vectors to make the system more secure for token holders.
The team wanted its contracts to set standards for future crowdsales, according to George, Gnosis founder and lead developer. The team created patterns to allow verifiable transitions of crowdfunding states and security best practices.
The revenue distribution algorithm can set a standard to enable safe trading of tokens.
Testing for SingularDTV began in 2016 with the launch of SNGLS tokens, including the first Ethereum payment API and SNGLS token generation module. It also was the start of exploring standard procedures for testing and developing Solidity code-based systems.
Solidity is a Java-like programming language for creating smart contrasts running on the Ethereum Virtual Machine.
SingularDTV is launching the beginning of its entertainment ecosystem this year with launch events taking place in Q2 and Q4 of 2017. The first version of SingularDTV’s rights management gateway is set to launch in Q2, followed by its decentralized distribution portal set for release in Q4.
More information on SingularDTV’s Q2 launch event is forthcoming.
