F1 Champ Alonso Adopts KodakCoin Platform for Image Protection

Two-time Formula One racing champion Fernando Alonso is tapping Kodak's blockchain-powered platform to safeguard his image rights.

WENN Digital Inc., Kodak's partner in developing the KODAKCoin and a new blockchain system to store and manage image copyrights, announced on June 28 that it had signed an agreement with Alonso to protect both his professional and personal images and videos, according to a press release.

According to the press release, this agreement will make the platform KODAKOne "the exclusive image registration, protection and license-monitoring solution" for Alonso's images and videos. The system will allow his fans to access the platform, which is not live yet, to upload, register and protect their photos and videos of Alonso while being "rewarded."

Alonso said in the press release:

"We live in a world driven by content distribution across different channels, especially during such large events as F1 and WEC. I'm very excited to know that I have the ability to reward my fans and professional photographers for their creativity, and that the content they produce can be protected by a single platform."

Benedikt Dohnanyl, chief commercial officer (CCO) at WENN Digital, Inc, told CoinDesk the partnership has been under discussion for several months, but WENN is not sponsoring Alonso.

"We do, however, have arrangements within all of our agreements that generate revenues for our clients," Dohnanyl added. He believes the company may begin forging similar partnerships with other clients in the near future.

"We are currently receiving a lot of requests and interest from global brands, content creators and rights holders in these various fields, to whom IP protection is of particular concern," he said.

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights Bitcoin price has broken past the neckline of a short-term double bottom to signal that an uptrend is underway.

Bitcoin price has confirmed its short-term double bottom but has yet to complete a larger one to signal a longer-term climb. Technical Indicators Signals The 100 SMA is below the longer-term 200 SMA on the 4-hour time frame to signal that the path of least resistance is to the downside. In other words, there’s a stronger chance for the selloff to resume from here. However, price has climbed past the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point to signal that bullish momentum is picking up. Besides, the moving averages might simply be oscillating to reflect consolidation. RSI is on the move down after recently hitting overbought levels, signaling that sellers are taking control of bitcoin price action while buyers take a break. Similarly stochastic is on the move down to reflect the presence of bearish pressure. With that, bitcoin could still revisit the lows around $6,200. BTCUSD Chart from TradingView Still, sentiment has been mostly positive as traders are drawing hope from the SEC decision to yet again prolong the comment period for bitcoin ETF applications. For many, the regulator’s decision to refrain from a rejection suggests that there’s still a possibility for an approval later on. With that, speculations for a strong rebound before the year comes to a close are still in play. Any indication that an approval for the VanEck/SolidX bitcoin ETF could lead to positioning ahead of any official announcements as traders are keen on not getting left behind any major rallies. On the other hand, hints that a rejection may be in order could lead the slide to resume. The post Bitcoin (BTC) Price Watch: Short-Term and Long-Term Reversal Patterns appeared first on NewsBTC.
