Canadian Blockchain Music Startup Looks East

Beatdapp Software, Inc.,a blockchain-enabled music tech startup with offices in Vancouver and LA. They have recently been in the news for raising $3.2M and adding some well-known names to their advisory board, such as the former Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper. Beatdapp’s technology is highly scalable and if the barrage of demo requests from around the world is any indication, it seems to be in demand.

Asian markets such as Japan, India and S. Korea are booming and this Canadian startup is betting on their need for solutions to streamline a component of their supply chain. But despite their high demand tech, Beatdapp’s advisory board might be the real catalyst for deals abroad.

Morgan Hayduk and Andrew Batey, two of the three co-founders of Beatdapp joined me over a call between meetings with prospective clients in Nashville and explained how their proprietary blockchain-enabled ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) is promising to solve a $4 billion music industry problem. Beatdapp’s third co-founder and CTO, Pouria Assadipour, led the development of its core and now patented, blockchain technology.
