‘PUBLISH Asia 2019’ is an annual conference held by WAN-IFRA (World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers) for the newspaper and news industry in Asia. This year was held in Singapore.
The main focus of this conference was ‘Fake News’ and ‘New Business Model’. PUBLISH which was invited as a representative of the project to solve fake news and provide solutions to solving management and business problems, received great response in the field.
In the ‘New Businesses and New Opportunities’ session, Sonny Kwon, CEO of PUBLISH, Inc. made a presentation titled “Securing financial and editorial insight through tokenization”. In the session, Sonny Kwon explained the tokenization of the media and introduced how to make it possible.
We introduced the PUBLISHprotocol, a blockchain platform for the media, and the PUBLISHalliance, a consortium of media, technology companies and academic institutions for development and adoption of PUBLISHprotocol. In addition, we introduced PUBLISHsoft, an internet newspaper solution based on blockchain that can realize tokenization of media.
In the “Introducing PUBLISHsoft, blockchain-based content management system for newspaper businesses” session that followed, a demo was demonstrated along with a detailed description of the PUBLISHsoft introduced in the first session. As we received high interest in the previous session, many media representatives visited the demonstration session and confirmed the PUBLISHsoft.
PUBLISH team has been working for the past month to promote the PUBLISH project in Japan, China and Singapore. PUBLISHprotocol and PUBLISHsoft are new solutions that can solve the new business model of the media industry and fake news, and it receives much attention from abroad. We will continue to make efforts to inform PUBLISH. We ask for your continued interest.
