In the article, the CEO of Blink, Matthew Craig, stated following about the partnership:
The unwieldy process of managing licenses and copyright terms for the large volume of content produced by Blink is simply a fool’s errand – our clients want a better solution that creates transparency and accountability at every stage of licensing and our artists deserve it. This partnership is a critical step forward for licensing and will allow Blink to continue servicing the insatiable market for original content at scale,
Konstantin Richter, responsible for the Business Development of Po.et also added:
This partnership allows us at Po.et to envision a complete marketplace where freelancers can get hired, protect their work and get rewarded for it in a proactive manner. The Blink participation will help us to ensure we develop the right blockchain utilities to serve their needs,
