A screencast recording of this presentation is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH5gi92tXyE

In this talk, Chris covers how the dotBC open source project combines blockchain nodes, cloud gateways, semantic graph, and a new file format called .bc to form a decentralized interoperability framework for the music ecosystem.

This talk was originally presented by Chris Tse as part of a panel at Copyright and Technology 2017 in New York City on January 24, 2017.
