Thought process on how to develop the platform and manage copyrights. We also had initial discussion on benefits of using blockchain
Started prototyping with 2 full stack developers. Workflows, database and other development standards were setup on a private cloud.
Marketplace platform development begins. Initiated cloud storage setup to handle large amount of images.
Develop contracts and testing Working on contracts for copyright information that will be stored on blockchain. The contract stores copyright information along with image hash value of the images. Further contracts will also be used to create unique or extended editions of the artwork to be sold in the marketplace.
