Grow the Token Economy
within a $46 Billion Market
Founded by a team of professionals who created global K-POP music stars such as PSY, Girls’ Generation, BTS, EXO, and WannaOne, Z-POP DREAM Project will establish a global entertainment ecosystem to discover hidden pop music talents, accelerate their rise to stardom and create a global token economy within the $46 billion global music market, hand-in-hand with hundreds of millions of K-POP music fans spread across the world.
The Project’s business model has both star creation business and global online monetization platform. On one side, the proceeds from the ITO will be used to accelerate creating infrastructure for this star creation business, and on the other hand it will create global online monetization platform, which will tokenize the revenue opportunities generated by the star creation business, including concert tickets, merchandise, online content and admission to exclusive events.
The Z-POP DREAM Project tackles the 3 main problems that occur frequently in the music industry yet sometimes go unnoticed to the vast majority of public.
＊ Dreamer Problem: Hidden talents are not given a chance.
＊ Fan Problem: Fans are left out of the process of creating a star.
＊ Music Industry Problem: A high barrier to entry stardom on a global scale.
Z-POP DREAM Project aims at solving these problems with the following approaches.
- 1. Discover and nurture hidden Stars
- 2. Empower Fans to grow Stars
- 3. Grow Stars into Global Stars
1. Discover and nurture hidden Stars
The Z-POP DREAM Project will set up Z-POP Star Academies in 10 countries and regions outside Korea - Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore. Future stars will be created by Korea’s tried and tested advanced star training methodology. The project gives talents a realistic chance to rise to stardom.
2. Empower Fans to grow Stars
The project will give fans the voting interest through our online platform. Fan votes will play a crucial role in decisive events such as auditions and award ceremonies. Adopting the Ethereum blockchain technology, the project makes the voting transparent and trustworthy. The Z-POP DREAM Project offers fans the opportunity to grow their favorite stars.
3. Grow Stars into Global Stars
K-POP is the fastest growing music sector in the world and breaking down global barriers, as first demonstrated by Psy’s smashing hit ‘Gangnam Style’. The legacy is carried forward by groups like Girl’s Generation, BTS, and WannaOne. The project will create global stars using the successful K-POP music production formula blended with new cultural elements, K-POP’s huge global fan base, and stadium-scale global audition event to be aired internationally by TV broadcasting stations.

Z-POP DREAM Project is not creating a new blockchain. Instead it brings out the best of promising features of Etherium platform, and apply them to solving the real life problem on global scale. The project’s ultimate dream is that, using track records and reputations transparently recorded on blockchain, along with voting power granted, anyone in the Z-POP DREAM ecosystem, fans, stars, professionals, and investors alike, has a chance to create stars!
Planned use cases of the project include, but, not limited to:
• A base currency in Z-POP Online and in the ecosystem built by the project
• Booking and ticketing (concerts, exclusive meet-ups, auditions, etc.)
• Rights licensing and tracking of content distribution
• Digital media entitlement, digital rights management
• Tranparent voting systems
• Gratitude point systems
Technically we will be able to implement some of our project scope without blockchain, but, we will not be able to realise our complete vision. For example, we will be able to give fans ways to vote without blockchain, but the process will not be transparent and fans will not be able to confirm whether their voting power has been exercised correctly and their votes indeed have had effect. Lack of transparency has always been one of the recognised issues in entertainment industry. Use of blockchain will bring clarity and confidence. That is a very important part of our mission.
ICO is designed to support projects that will contribute to the development of blockchain technologies and crypto token. There are two aspects of it; developing technologies and applying technologies. Z-POP DREAM Project applies blockchain technology to address major issues in the entertainment business ecosystem as illustrated in the answer to the use case question above. The success of Z-POP DREAM Project will bring a testimonial that blockchain technology can indeed resolve real life problems.
The project has both crowd funding and crowd sale elements.
Crowd funding applies to star creation infrastructure development. This includes; setting up of Z-POP Star Academy, Z-POP Dream Audition, Z-POP Dream Global Audition and Z-POP Dream Live World Tour. We will use the proceeds from the ICO to establish these infrastructure. Each component of the infrastructure will bring in substantial revenue opportunities.
The proceeds from ICO will also fund the creation of Z-POP Online that is the crowd sale platform. Using this platform, we will tokenise revenue opportunities generated by the star creation infrastructure, including distributing concert tickets, merchandise, online content, and admission to special events. Z-POP Online is open to K-POP and other POP artists and fans, and help unite broader audience and create greater community.
By combining the crowd funding and crowd sales elements, we expect a substantial part of $46 billion market opportunity to migrate to the Z-POP ecosystem and fuel token economy.
The project offers a solid business case and token economics model that the crypto exchanges are looking for. In parallel to ICO process, we will start dialogue with major exchanges so that our token shall be listed soonest possible post the completion of ICO.
