Hubii IconVision

We started our journey as an aggregator of local news - working with hundreds of media outlets and large distributors such as phone manufacturers and telecom companies. Together with them we serve 50 million customers every day. But, all along, we could feel the pain of a broken process first hand.

In 2017 we decided to augment our existing business with blockchain technology, knowing it would make the distribution of content so much easier and content so much more relevant for all involved: creators, distributors and consumers.

What started as a project to make content distribution faster, more transparent and more relevant has since evolved into the vision of an ecosystem of blockchain based tools around all forms of content and spanning the full product cycle: funding, creation, sharing, verifying, monetizing and managing.

As we started building this system we realized that none of the key tools needed to power it - especially around asset management - met our high standards of transparency and ease of use. So we included them in our roadmap. In fact, our first public launches focus on these core functionalities, as they will power the content specific solutions we are building on top of them.

At Telenor we aspire to be our customers' favourite partner in digital life. Through engaging products and services, such as WowBox, Telenor's lifestyle app, we deliver on this ambition and give people the full benefit of being connected. WowBox has reached more than 10 million users in our Asian markets and Hubii has been an integral part of making it the success that it is today, reaching out to our large user base with their global content distribution network. The team at Hubii has been important in creating value for our WowBox customers by building solutions that make content distribution more effective and provide high value content. We wish them great success also in the future.

The media industry is in turmoil, with traditional relationships between creators and distributors broken and standard measures of value unreliable. Blockchain, by disintermediating gatekeeper companies, can redefine the industry for the 21st century, put control in the hands of makers and users, and allow a true marketplace to establish value.
