    I don't think so. A blockchain is just a distributed administration. The one problem it can solve is dependence on a single server. But a good hacker will just as easily remove a blockchain dependency as a dependency on e.g. iLok.

    Let the software companies worry about all of that.

    I am a composer. I only care about how the software will make my life easier, not protecting the intellectual property of a company. They hire people to do that kind of thing. People care too much about how restrictive a company can be with some sounds. We don't work for NI or these other companies. We buy a product and use it.

    Why in the world do composers worry so much about that? It confuses the hell out of me.

    Do you care about protecting the intellectual property of composers? We're all in this together.

    Some of us composers are also fascinated by advancements in technology outside of our immediate composery goals - and the blockchain is a hot topic right now (sort of). Further, I appreciate threads like this, musing on what the future of this-or-that aspect of the industry is going to be. It helps to give me perspective on my place in it.

    Many members of the "software companies" you mention also use this website as a forum for discussion. Not everyone here makes their living as a composer.

    See the title of this sub-forum?

    This is where the programmers hang out.

    I can't see how blockchain would provide anything that's better or more efficient than traditional mechanisms. Blockchain is good for controlling transactions - not what happens after the transaction has completed (as shown by numerous thefts from coin exchanges or coin exchange owners simply making off with the 'money').
