Grow Stars, Grow the Token Economy within a $46 Billion Market
Today K-POP Music stars like PSY, Girls' Generation, BTS, EXO, and WannaOne are a global phenomenon. Coming out of nowhere, these music stars have captured a global audience and are at the helm of a global music market commanding a large part $45 Billion global music market. Their unparalleled success and staying power is proof of concept of radical new way of managing music business for worldwide success! They were created by professionals who foresaw huge upsides in the Music Industry by creating a new kind of infrastructure, organisation, content, technology and monetisation foundations.
The Z-POP team now seeks to replicate the success of K-POP and create global music stars from multiple countries by bringing together the KPOP professionals and voting power of fans!
The Project's business model has star creation business and global online monetisation 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 monetisation 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 seeks to unlock huge opportunities in the Music industry by disrupting 3 aspects which are holding back the Industry.
01 Disrupting Talent Discovery
Despite proliferation of various mediums and social media, hidden talents still go unnoticed because of absence of an established and sustained Talent Discovery platform. The myriads of Talent Hunt program do not offer beyond “showcasing and packaging talent”. Nurturing and monetisation of Talent is left to chance and perseverance capacity of the Talent.
02 Music Industry Disruption
There are many shackles that limit talent footprint to a local region. There is no robust and sustained systemic support to nurture, package, launch and market talent at a global scale.
03 Disrupting Fan Engagement
Fans were always important in success of any music venture. They were however afforded limited opportunities to participate in growth and success of their music idols.
Key personnels behind Z-POP DREAM Project including founders are renowned professional production specialists and music promoters. From very early days of K-POP, they have contributed the creation of legends such as Psy, Boa, TVXQ, Super Junior, Girls' Generation, Big Bang, 2NE1, EXO, BTS, and Wanna One. Z-POP DREAM Project continues to add respectable production professionals to its already powerful set of group.

3. What are the use cases of blockchain?
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

Transparent voting systems
Gratitude point systems
4. Is it possible to realise Z-POP DREAM Project without blockchain?
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.
5. Entertainment project is not common in ITO. Why are you using ITO to raise funds?
ITO 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.
6. What is your business model?
The Proceeds from ITO will fund development of star creation infrastructure and Z-POP Online platform. The star creation infrastructure includes Z-POP Star Academy, Z-POP DREAM Audition, Z-POP DREAM Global Audition and Z-POP DREAM Live World Tour. Each component of the infrastructure will bring in substantial revenue opportunities. Using Z-POP Online Platform, we will tokenize the revenue opportunities generated by the star creation infrastructure, including distributing concert tickets, merchandise, online content, and admission to special events. In addition, Z-POP Online has unique features that incentivize users to hold ZPOP Coins. User base growth will lead to exponential growth of ZPOP Coin demands.
7. When will your tokens be available on exchange platforms?
The project offers a solid business case and token economics model that the crypto exchanges are looking for. In parallel to ITO process, we will start dialogue with major exchanges so that our token shall be listed soonest possible post the completion of ITO.
