DAFNE+ project aims to help digital content creators to find new forms of creation, distribution and monetization of their works of art through blockchain technology. The project will provide new services and tools that allow the creation and co-creation of content in a blockchain in an intuitive and simple way so that artists don’t need to have technical knowledge on blockchains or NFTs. These tools will be compatible with those currently used by content creators in their studios, so that the quality of the works is not affected.

Moreover, DAFNE+ will promote creator communities through the new decentralized organizations (DAOs) that are forming around digital tokens or NFTs. DAFNE+ will create a DAO in which all the holders of a governance NFT or token will have decision-making power over the rules of the community and the content distribution platform that will be created. DAFNE+’s research will also focus on the definition of new business models through the distribution of content, allowing creators and users to monetize multimedia creations, considering also the needs of the DAO community that they are involved with.
