Ecosystem

In order to speed up the expansion of the Contents Protocol Ecosystem, 
the Corporation will launch an open source reference platform for each content category of TV, Music, Comics, and E-Books, reducing barriers for potential content platform operators to do business in our ecosystem.

In the beginning, the Corporation will either develop a reference platform from ground up or acquire an existing platform and convert it to a reference platform.

For a more vibrant Contents Protocol Ecosystem in the early stage, the Corporation, as an accelerator, may either recruit candidates or invest in and/or acquire existing 3rd party platform operators.

Roadmap

At each stage of the roadmap, the Corporation will first launch an open source reference platform. Then, the Corporation will source 3rd party platform operators.
