  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Enabling the Internet of Value

Part of the book series: Future of Business and Finance ((FBF))


Throughout history, media is a field that has been affected by technological development. Since the 1990s, the Internet has been the main driver of influence, profoundly affecting how people create, transmit and share information worldwide, consequently changing the structure of the media sector. Although digital technologies are transforming the media sector, various challenges are arising as seen in fake news and echo chamber. This chapter explores how distributed ledger technology (DLT) and blockchain technologies can contribute to solving new challenges in the media sector. This is worth exploring because the central advantages of blockchain/DLT are related to trust, and the new challenges in the media sector are mainly related to the lack of trust. This chapter provides a framework to show the benefits of using blockchain/DLT and discusses how those benefits can solve the challenges in the media sector.
