Online content streaming platforms have quickly grown to become one of the most pervasive internet-based technologies in recent years.
Now, more than a billion people worldwide stream on a regular basis, and a large fraction of these users hold a subscription or membership with a major streaming service — such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube Premium, etc.
Though wildly successful, most streaming platforms are riddled with challenges and are in need of a major refresh — here we take a look at the problems at hand, and examine why blockchain technology might be the answer.
In the last decade…
Are Altcoins Slowly Taking Over The Market?
A well-known debate in the cryptocurrency space revolves around the battle between the world’s first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin and whether it will stay dominant over its altcoin counterparts.
Many old school crypto enthusiasts still say that Bitcoin is king and forever will be. However, today there are many other cryptocurrencies that arrived at the party later, aiming to target the drawbacks of Bitcoin and provide better alternatives by creating more fluid, inclusive and intelligent ecosystems.
We are excited to announce our investment in bloXmove.
bloXmove is on a mission to connect smart cities and mobility operators together by streamlining multimodal transportation as a service (MaaS) with the aim of working towards achieving net-zero carbon neutrality.
Urban Mobility Infrastructure in Smart Cities
The concept of “smart cities” has been adopted by many large metropolitan areas worldwide, such as Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, and Manchester, with an increased focus on sustainable development. Such metropolises feature new systems ranging from energy consumption improvements to recycling methods while also incorporating communication tools and urban mobility infrastructures.
Electric bikes, taxis, trains…
First-generation cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Litecoin were designed to help provide an alternative payment system and store of value to the billions of individuals and businesses that have been failed by traditional currencies — most of which are plagued by rampant inflation, counterfeiting, and the fact that they’re based on debt.
Indeed, cryptocurrencies and the surrounding decentralized finance (DeFi) technologies are widely thought to be a promising alternative to banks and traditional financial institutions — since they can be used to essentially bank the unbanked and provide a decentralized monetary system that is free from manipulation and centralized control.
We are proud to announce our recent investment in Vegaswap, a next-generation AMM Protocol that solves impermanent loss with SMART Pools and dynamic fees.
The Pros and Cons of Decentralized Exchanges in the DeFi space

What was once a sea of isolated assets, protocols, and tools, is quickly evolving into what can only be described as a “Metaverse” — that is, the entirety of digital products, services, and assets that form a sprawling interconnected digital landscape.
Much like the internet of today, the Metaverse is a shared virtual space in which individuals and businesses can interact freely. …
At Master Ventures, we strongly believe that cross-chain composability is one of the key requirements for the mass adoption of blockchain-based technologies.
With most blockchains unable to communicate with one another and a current lack of standardized protocols for cross-chain value transfers, this has left different blockchains and their communities isolated from one another.
Fortunately, then, that problem of interoperability and cross-chain composability is now coming into focus, and development teams worldwide are beginning to make progress toward solving it once and for all.
As it stands, the vast majority of blockchains were not built with interoperability in mind. Instead…
