On Monday, Oct. 15, Sony Corporation, Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc., and Sony Global Education announced in a press release the development of a “rights management system for digital content that utilizes Blockchain technology.”

The new system is based on an older one, for authenticating, sharing, and rights management of educational data, also providing functionality for processing digital rights-related data. The announced system will focus on written works and, Sony claims, the use of Blockchain will prove the information about the content is recorded in an immutable way.

“This newly-developed system is specialized for managing rights-related information of written works, with features for demonstrating the date and time that electronic data was created, leveraging the properties of blockchains to record verifiable information in a difficult to falsify way, and identifying previously recorded works, allowing participants to share and verify when a piece of electronic data was created and by whom,” Sony stated.

Once functional, this Blockchain-based system will be also used for other types of digital content as well, such as “electronic textbooks and other educational content, music, films, VR content, and e-books.” Sony also stated it is going to commercialize the system as a service.

Last year, Sony teamed up with IBM for development of a Blockchain for storing academic record — a project that sounds quite similar to the one presented today.

It Could Take Bitcoin 22 Years to Retest Its ATH: UBS Analyst

The fact that Bitcoin saw its price breaking above $5,000 at the beginning of April made everyone highly optimistic about the prospects of a full-fledged bull run. However, crypto bulls shouldn’t hold their breath since it could take decades for the number one currency to recover from its epic downfall.

Bitcoin compared to other bubbles  

After comparing Bitcoin to other bubbles, UBS analyst Kevin Dennean came to a conclusion that BTC will most likely follow their lead, Business Insider reports.
However, here’s a catch – Bitcoin will have to undergo a long-lasting recovery, so it is not reasonable to expect another bull run in the nearest future. For comparison, it took the Dow Jones Industrials 22 years to reach its previous peak.   


‘We're struck by how long it took other asset bubbles to recover their peak levels (as long as 22 years for the Dow Jones Industrials) and how pedestrian the annualized returns from trough to the recovery often are,’ Dennean claims.

With that being said, it is still not guaranteed that a certain bubble retests its ATH even after decades since a big burst. Nikkei, despite reaching its 20-year highs in October 2017, was still 50 percent lower than its ATH that was recorded in 1989.

During the peak of the crypto market, Bitcoin was frequently compared to the infamous tulip mania, but these two barely had anything in common (except for the horrible stability of value). Hence, it hardly makes sense to apply a certain pattern and expect Bitcoin to behave in a similar fashion to other bubbles.

Historically, enormous price crashes actually benefited Bitcoin. As reported by U.Today, Bitcoin trader recently noticed that the BTC price rise 5.1-16.89 times every 70+ percent plunge. Crypto bulls have every reason to expect a similar outcome this time around.
