One of the core decisions an engineer has to make while designing an application is how its users’ identity is going to be managed. While in traditional centralized client-server architecture this decision has already common patterns and protocols — in the decentralized world it’s still not there. I’m going to share our experience from designing the user identity management flow in our decentralized application, while working on Wemark’s first product that’s running on top of its digital property licensing protocol. In this post, I’m going to elaborate all possible solutions I know for this issue, followed by code examples written for the Ethereum network.
I’ve been doing digital marketing for the past 12 years. For me, marketing is only a measure I use to promote products, businesses and causes I like. I’m a terrible marketer if I don’t believe in what I’m trying to sell.
For me, marketplaces were a dream come true. I saw marketplaces as a great way to put great products and services in front of a massive audience that is already interested in what they’re offering, and help both sides to find each other and transact directly.
A Brief History of Stock Photography — The Beginning (Part 1)
Contrary to what you might think, the history of stock photography is less a history of technique or creative process than it’s a history of technology, business models and industry disruption.
Whether it’s photos, illustrations, videos, audio clips or any other kind of licensable content, the success differentiator consistently boils down to two factors: how to find what you need, and how you’ll pay for it.
A Brief History of Stock Photography — Then Came The Aggregators (Part 2)
On the first part of this series (Part 1 — The Beginning) we reviewed the very beginning of stock photography, with a quick flashback into the 80’s and 90’s.
From individual photographers realising a business opportunity, the industry evolved to include more creators, more customers, and more agencies.
The range of agencies — from mom and pop to something more corporate — as well slow-tech tools for getting images may have been a catalyst for Getty and Corbis, a new type of agency: the conglomerate. These models, launched by monied pioneers like Bill Gates and Mark Getty, disrupted the industry with a model of acquisition and consolidation.
As momentum builds for Wemark’s launch and token sale, we’re excited to welcome Miguel Forbes to our prestigious team of advisors. Forbes brings decades of financial and media expertise, and his experience with publishing, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy makes him a great fit.
What is wrong with getting your photographs directly from the photographer? Why will someone invest in some business plan just to get their photographs. This is my point. You many disagree with this but i had to be honest.
